The Gibson Electric & Technology Solutions subsidiary of EMCOR Group Inc., Norwalk, Conn., will use BIM (building information modeling) techniques for a job it recently won to install the power and technology systems for the Palos Community Hospital Surgery and Bed Pavilion in Palos Heights, Ill. Gibson Electric will install all of the power and technology systems in the new hospital building, a 400,000-square-foot, seven-story addition housing 10 new multi-use surgical suites and 216 private patient rooms. The BIM process will help Gibson generate and manage building data and three-dimensional, dynamic real-time, building modeling to increase efficiency and productivity in building design and construction. Construction is scheduled to be completed in fall 2012. Details
