Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems: Why They're a Smarter Option

Geothermal heating and cooling systems can be a smart option for heating and cooling your commercial facility. It uses the earth as a heat source (in the winter) or a heat sink (in the summer). The design takes advantage of the moderate temperatures in the ground to boost efficiency and reduce the operational costs of heating and cooling systems, and may be combined with solar heating to form a geo-solar system with even greater efficiency.

Understanding Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is now possible through the use of highly advanced software technology. BIM is utilized to provide a digital representation of what your building will look like and how it will function inside and out. Through BIM we can work with subcontractors and other entities (including the client) to develop a building from the ground up. You can see both the physical and functional characteristics of the structure as the project moves from one stage to the next during the preconstruction phase. For project management professionals such as Shingobee, it gives an open hands-on tool to properly execute building construction and help mitigate sub-trade clash issues before they become a problem in the field.
