Building Information Modeling increases productivity, preempts problems, and helps us meet aggressive deadlines. It lets our crews map spaces in detail before they’re built out, so that we can proactively complete our layouts; often, we can start installing even before we receive completed engineering drawings. This not only saves time, but reduces congestion in high-traffic work areas, since the work can be fully planned and prefabricated offsite. Cochran embraces BIM and 3D coordination and has modeled more than 10,000,000 square feet of project space. → Projects

Prefabricating components in our own warehouses is standard practice at Cochran. It reduces jobsite congestion, decreases waste packaging and clutter, shortens installation times, lowers our clients’ composite labor rates, and makes for a safer project. It also achieves higher quality, keeps projects on schedule, and supports just-in-time delivery to the jobsite. In addition, material for prefabricated items is shipped to our warehouses via an on-site vendor-managed inventory system, which minimizes material over-purchasing and handling, eliminates waiting for delivery from remote manufacturers, and reduces the amount of storage area we require. → Projects
