Shingobee is pleased to announce that The Gardner School in Edina, MN, has been named one of 2017’s Top Projects by Finance & Commerce. Shingobee provided a complete renovation of an aging industrial building that had been sparsely occupied for the last ten years. The renovation and conversion to a handsome, contemporary preschool/childcare center revived the building and significantly improved its appearance in an office/industrial area of Edina.

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.
