Building Information Modeling (BIM) – The design staff at J.M.Carden. very experienced in the 3D / BIM design process. The construction industry is constantly being challenged to deliver successful projects in increasingly shorter time frames. The BIM process provides for the virtual construction of a facility prior to its actual physical construction. This process reduces uncertainty, provides a pathway to more efficient construction, and gives the owner more extensive information at the completion of the project. We are proficient in the 3D design process. Let us bring our expertise to your next project.

Project designs include:

  • ESFR Systems up to and including the latest 50-foot structures
  • High-Piled Storage
  • Foam Systems
  • Deluge Systems
  • Dry-pipe Systems
  • Pre-Action Systems
  • Quell Systems
  • Standpipes
  • Fire Pumps
  • Small and Large buried and above ground Tanks
