Project News


Received a call from a great Contractor about 8 days before Thanksgiving.  They were bidding on a 18 story dual brand hotel and need an Architctural, Structural and Hardscape model built for their 4D construction animation video.  Of course we want to be a part of this project.    First question is when do you need the model complete?  Answer was before Thanksgiving.  With alot of long hours put in we delivered all the models required 2 days before Thanksgiving.  The Contractor was able to take those models the next week and link to their construction schedule and create an awesome animation for the presentation.  6 days to create 2 levels of Retail space, 5 levels of parking structure and 8 levels of a Dual Brand Hotel.  #ARCHICAD


October has been full of Residential projects both new construciton and renovations.   More to come as we get approvals and move forward with Permit Drawings with these projects in 2019 


Another large commercial project going out for bid this month.  However this project has an added twist.  This is currently an existing buidling used for business occupants and parking that the Owner wants to convert to residential use.  Our charge was to take the existing 1965 drawings and recreate the existing building.  Then indicate what will remain and what elements will be demolished.  And finally create the new model of the residential tower.  


Always excited to work on large commercial projects.  A large national contractor contacted us as they were bidding a 32 story residential high rise project.  They wanted to take the current schematic design documents and generate a Structural model along with an Architrecturl model so that they could link the model elements to their proposed construciton schedule.  The intent of the process is to generate an animation of the digtial twin showing the construction sequencing of the project to the client.  As with most projects that are being bid in the commercial sector time is critical.  We had just 9 days to take the PDF design documents and recreate the model.  Utilzing the speed of Graphisoft's ARCHICAD we delivered the full Architectural and Structural model along with a BIMx Pro model application in 8 days.  


Mountain homes continue to a theme for 2018.  This 16,500 square foot home consisits of 3 levels of living space, a 3 car garage with a secondary 2 car garge aound back.  Because of grading we were able to open the space under the car garge into a large recreation room that will host a golf simulation area.  The lower level includes workout room, locker room and office.  Main level holds the master suite with large great room, dining and kitchen.  The upper level that you access from an elevator or the stair rotunda then cross an interior bridge houses a guest quarters complete with 2 bedrooms, and baths, and a sitting area.  All levels include spacious exterior decks to take in the beautiful North Carolina mountains.   Site work as already been started on this project.  Looking forward to seeing this project go vertical this year.  


A new custom home coming soon in Mooresville, NC.  IQ Custom Construction contacted us to assist them in redesigning the front elevation of one of their current house plans they provide.  Their client is wanting to buid this home in a neighborhood that already has an IQ Custom Construction home with a similar floor plan.  Madison BIM Consulting worked with IQ Custom Construction to expand the floor plan and redsign the front elevation.  We have approval from the client and are moving into working drawings.  Excited to see this project start construction this year.  Enjoyed working on the desgn of this project and producing various options of renderings.  From daytime to night time and basic sketch Madison BIM Consulting can prodcue the look you are searching for.

Does your project need marketing power, imagery for grant funding / approval, or just need a visual so that your team can understand your intent?  Madison BIM ConsultIng can assist in creating digital images for every project.  Client contacted us to assist in creating images for a renovation project of a local YMCA entry.  We relocated the reception desk so that it was directly across from the main entry and added storefront door and glazing for security to access the Child Care and Aquatics Center.  Images will be submitted with project for grant funding.  


2018 has started off extremely fast and busy. Preliminary work has started on a new 6000 sq. ft. 3 level mountain house. An open floor plan with large great room and connecting kitchen with vaulted ceilings. Master on main level, 2 bedrooms on lower level with gathering room between. Bunk house and office over the garage. A great vacation/second home layout. Construction looking to start in March / April 2018. More to come as the model progresses and then construction.


Was appraoced by a new client to assist in modifications and additions to their new home.  They had already selected a home designed by Moser Design Group, Inc., Sugarberry Cottage .  This is a well designed 2-story, 3 bedroom cottage but they wanted to make some minor modifications including the addition of a garage, carport, and mother-in-law suite.  So in order to get started we purchased the construction documents set from Moser Design Group, Inc., and began to model the home with adjustments, garage and site.  We are almost complete with design modifications and moving into producing the documents set.  One of the highlights of working this project with great clients was the ability to sit with them in their living room and review the project.  This was not a normal review with printed plans.  We utilized the app BIMx on my iPad and air played it through their apple tv.  We walked through the model and worked through all the plans.  Reviewing each room both plan, elevation and 3D view.  This increased the review process time and led to great ideas and allowed my clients to see what their new home could and would look like before it will be built.  More images to come as we complete the design. 


Client contacted me to assist in model clean up and documentaion prep for his trip to Banner Elk, NC to get pricing from local contractors.  A fun quick project in ARCHICAD where we modeled full exterior and inteior as well as floor framing and roof framing members for pricing.  A modern design 3000 square feet mountain home with a 3 bedroom, 3bath and den Terrace level; Main level Master suite, living, kitchen, and outdoor deck; Second level Master and office.  Home comes with a secondary building with garage, workshop, and second level studio.

Client purchsed a piece of property on Lake Lanier, GA ready to design and build their forever home.  With narrow lot constraints we had to work to position this house as far to the back proprety line as we could due to the septic field in the front portion of the stie.  Clients wanted a 'Craftsman' feel to their home along with windows to view the lake from the living and dining rooms.  With an open floor plan this spacious 3 bedroom home with first level master suite, basement, upstairs den, media room and bonus room have a lot to over for their family.  Permit documents are underway and hoping to break ground mid to late October.
