Taking BIM to the Field

Giving you the ability to take BIM model points to the field

ClarkDietrich Engineering Services (CDES) is collaborating with GTP Services LLC and Autodesk® Point Layout (formerly GTP Software) giving contractors more accurate job site layouts.

CDES offers BIM coordination and engineering design services for cold-formed steel framing to architects, general contractors and subcontractors. BIM coordination includes assisting with clash avoidance, collaborating with other trades, creating 3D visuals for cold-formed steel framing, providing detailed documentation/shop drawings that include wall elevations, sections and plan views, and other customized BIM services.


The CDES BIM Team now offers the service of adding field points into their BIM models for locations like: jamb studs, duct openings, corner studs and anchor connections. All points are added using Autodesk® Point Layout and are field coordinated using GTP Total Stations.
