BIM Designs, Inc., answering strong demand for its detailing and engineering services, has announced the addition of Electrical and HVAC/Sheet Metal to its existing Plumbing/Pipefitting BIM/MEP service expertise. In addition, BIM Designs is proud to announce its expansion by opening an office in Phoenix, Arizona. The office joins the existing location in Los Angeles, California.
BIM Designs, Inc. has worked on Plumbing/Pipefitting BIM Modeling projects across the West with well-known companies such as Cupertino Electric, Inc., XL Construction, and Air Systems, Inc. With the addition of Electrical, HVAC, and Sheet Metal segmentations, “The company establishes itself as a full-service Design/Build consulting firm with crews of detailers and drafters capable of taking on the broad spectrum of detailing assignments,” states Mark Oden, CEO at BIM Designs.
Opening the Phoenix location helps meet the demands of BIM Designs’ growing customer base. Oden expressed his enthusiasm over the opening of the new location stating, “This expansion allows us to better meet the needs of the local Phoenix market as well as continue to expand our capabilities nationally, taking on detailing projects in lump sum or hourly contracts.”
BIM Designs has established a strong relationship with and signed Phoenix-based UA Local 359, which serves the HVAC/Sheet Metal, Architectural, and Manufacturing industries. Having an existing relationship with local UA Plumbers and Pipefitters 469, the addition of Local 359 provides BIM Designs with a large pool of qualified, highly-trained candidates for area projects in need of Plumbing, Pipefitting, Electrical and HVAC/Sheet Metal expertise.
Drew Miller, Founder and VP of Operations, Los Angeles at BIM Designs stressed the impact of the expansion on the local community by adding, “We are excited to provide job opportunities in the community with immediate plans to hire several Journeyman Plumbers/Pipefitters and Sheet Mettlers, with the future hiring of Union Journeyman detailers of all trades as well as VDC technicians out of local Union Halls 469 and 359. Culture, employee happiness, and education are priorities for us at BIM Designs and we are proud to make this type of work environment and professional growth available to qualified candidates in the Phoenix area.”
Due to Miller’s 18 years of plumbing experience, 7 years in the field and 11 years detailing in California, Phoenix team members will have access to one of the most comprehensive codebooks in the country as part of their extensive training program. The Phoenix location will continue the company’s strong focus on training and cross-training, ensuring the new team has comprehensive knowledge in AutoCAD MEP Fabrication, Revit, and other tools such as BIM 360 enabling the company to deliver on detailing/modeling contracts nationwide and internationally.
