Constructability discussions to suggest excellent alternatives to decrease cost and increase efficiency
Virtual Design and Construction
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Our VDC team works to digitally design and build systems in a virtual model, where it can be prefabricated and installed safely with higher productivity.
Our VDC department focuses on making full use of the BIM process to assist our field teams.
VDC teams are responsible for creating and implementing digitally collaborative workflows to improve communication and productivity.
In existing facilities, TFS utilizes 3D scanning technology throughout the BIM process to accurately capture the as-built environment. New design models are placed within the scans to confirm fitment, placement, and routings with client prior to prefabrication and installation.
With a coordinated, constructible model, many of our customers’ systems can be prefabricated in our shops located nationwide.
We use our model files to drive our automated CNC Pipe Bending Machine.
It’s a digital world, and at TFS we align ourselves with digital construction standards that increase productivity.
On successful pre-fabricated projects, increased safety and quality can be expected, as well as reduction in project schedule and cost.
Lean Project Execution
TFS Continually Improves
TFS is committed to LEAN construction principles that we developed for our company.
We understand the value from our customers’ perspective and deliver these values (thus eliminating waste).
We conserve resources as we streamline our workflows, saving our customers time and money.
We listen to our customers and trust our people in the field performing the work, and empower them to continually find better ways to accomplish their daily tasks in the most efficient ways possible.
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) Approach
We have experience working on successful IPD projects.
This approach integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construction.
We have experienced project success collaborating with involved parties in the sharing of risk and profit.
