Design / Assist Services

43Forty has a strong commitment to fully utilizing technology. We integrate innovative technology such as design build and MSUITE into our everyday process to optimize time and cost savings.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) are invaluable tools for our fabrication process. Our technicians develop optimized piping designs, based on engineer designs, to ensure no problems or collisions arise when the pipe is being installed.  

Our company-wide use of MSUITE software has moved our processes to one program allowing us to streamline our BIM and fabrication processes. By overall utilizing this software, it allows us to increase productivity by 40% which ultimately leads to a reduction of cost and savings for customers. This software also allows us to provide customers with accurate tracking throughout every phase of their project, keeping them in the loop every step of the way.

43Forty’s design department also offers these additional services to support its fabrication projects:

Design-Build Partnerships Design-Build is a project delivery method in which the construction team collaborates directly with the architect or engineer during the design phase of a project. This ensures that a project is properly completed with minimal errors. Value Engineering The value engineering process is the method of examining each item or element's functionality compared to its associated cost. This process allows our team to make alternative suggestions to the construction methods, designs, or materials to increase the clients’ value of the overall project. 3D Laser Scanning Our 3D laser scanner allows us to quickly and easily model existing spaces to build the most accurate 3D model. The scans gathered serve a key purpose in collision detection in regards to existing features and provide the entire project team with a fully dimensional panoramic picture. Building Information Modeling (BIM) BIM is the collaborative process of planning, designing, and constructing a project within one 3D model. This process provides owners with the most cost-efficient solutions and reduces conflicts that might arise during the construction phase of a project. We then turn the 3D model into accurate ‘bite-size’ chunks to be fabricated in our shop. 3D Coordination 3D Coordination uses precise 3D models to coordinate with other contractors on construction projects. This process allows all parties to detect any potential clashes before the start of construction, ultimately cutting down project delays and cost overruns. Feasibility Studies Feasibility studies occur at the beginning stages of a project and are utilized to address doubts and difficulties related to the proposed project plans.
