Curtainwall Engineering Expert Implements BIM
October 22, 2009

Stow, Ohio-based Wheaton & Sprague Engineering Inc. has invested into software and training to incorporate AutoCad 3D and Revit Architecture into its practice.

"Our implementation of both of these strategic practices is a statement of our commitment to our building envelope expertise, and our desire to further our expertise for the benefit of our clients," says John L. Wheaton, P.E., LEED AP, president of Wheaton & Sprague Engineering Inc. "We believe that execution of both of these services will continue to improve our position us as a full-service building envelope firm, and will benefit both our building envelope consulting and our building envelope engineering clientele."

According to a company announcement, building information modeling (BIM) software facilitates a new way of working collaboratively between the architect, engineer and individual trades to create a model with consistent, reliable, design information, enabling faster decision-making and coordination, better documentation and the ability to evaluate sustainable building and infrastructure design alternatives using analysis to predict performance before breaking ground.
