WE ARE THE BRIDGE BETWEEN DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
ClearPlan Modeling is bridging the gap between the architect, homeowner, designer and builder, allowing problem solving BEFORE construction begins. Our Three Phase Process includes:
In this initial phase, we exhaustively review the plan and project documentation focusing on the structural and MEPS systems - everything behind the finishes. Truly, the majority of time we spend during this phase is in reviewing one plan detail against the others. Concurrently, we begin creating an as-built model (pre-built, really) of the project from the plans. Every plan page and every detail is reviewed and incorporated into this model, as they are presented in the plans. During this process, questions, errors and omissions are discovered.
Once we have completed our initial model and developed the list of questions and
potential issues, we work with the project’s design and construction teams in
reviewing and revising the details, resulting in better and more accurate
construction documentation. The model is also revised to reflect the results of
these discussions. We model the foundation, retaining walls, structural steel,
ductwork, plumbing, and more. Our team can show you not only how the home
will look but how to build it in a way that is clear and immediately understood by all.
Once Phase 2 is completed, the model is a very accurate representation of what will be the real world aspects of building the project. “Model the plans, build from the model.” Every aspect of the construction assemblies can be dimensioned and positioned in space on the project site. We provide consultation with the build crews as well as very detailed assembly information at appropriate times during the course of construction. We review and correct shop drawings using the model.
From finishes to construction assemblies and detailing, clash detection, and more—the ClearPlan Model is
the lens that provides the clarity of vision to all the stakeholders in the custom home project.
