Coordinated & Virtually-Constructed Engineering

Coordinated design and engineering lowers costs, reduces build times and minimizes frustrations.

Coordinated Engineering, Virtually Constructed

Architectural design and engineering involves thousands of decisions with great interdependency and many uncertainties. Designers must consider design criteria, budget, scheduling, manufacturing constraints and other information to coalesce into conceptualizations and models, which ultimately become working drawings, technical specifications and procedures.

At Apex, we are experts in communication and coordination, looking upstream and downstream to make the best decisions and avoid frustrating inefficiencies. We coordinate architectural design and engineering and apply Building Information Modeling (BIM) to minimize waste and maximize value. Using state-of-the-art, data-driven Revit models, we consider how all engineered systems and components will work together, then continually optimize our models to maximize overall effectiveness, efficiency and end-user satisfaction. In addition to delivering a set of PDF construction documents, we also deliver data reflecting the virtual construction.

Our architectural design and engineering staff utilize state-of-the art tools and software including Virtual Reality as well as 3D, 4D, 5D and 6D modeling to define the systems, structures, materials and processes that ensure the most effective and streamlined construction.
