About Us
Agon was founded in 2013 by Micah Childs, Chris
Stailey, and Jacob Mashburn in response to the
growing need for BIM coordination services.
Their paths crossed while working on the
coordination effort for the renovation to
Madison Square Garden in the winter of
2010. From the forge, Micah Chris Jacob,
developed a strong repour with clientele by
solving major issues with integrity behind the
handshake. Micahs extensive experience in MEP
fields, Chris detail oriented vision, and
Jacobs ability to collaborate well with others
brought together a trio that would soon create
Agon.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has become a
staple in the construction industry. Maintaining
an accurate and clean BIM model throughout the
entire project process has many benefits,
including increased accuracy of system
installation, productivity for on site
personnel, improved coordination with
subcontractors, and a reduced environmental
impact by decreasing excess material. BIM models
can help visualize multiple phases of a project
to help imagine key components of designing a
building. Instead of your traditional 2D
blueprint, a 3D model is used to create detailed
drawings that show all aspects of a building.
After a 3D model has gone through a coordination
process, the 3D/BIM models can generate 2D
construction documents which can be used by
construction foreman to direct their crews to
build the necessary components of their systems.

What is Building Information Modeling?
BIM is a 3D model created by software that can be
used throughout the entire process of designing
and building a structure. It starts with the
conceptual phase, where designers create 3D
models to imagine and design a building. Once
its
finalized, which
BIM generates 2D are essential for
construction construction
documents
professionals on the job site.

The Benefits of BIM in the Construction Industry
BIM is an evolving technology thats here to
stay. Its not just for large projects, either.
You can use BIM at any stage of the construction
process to create better building designs and
generate 2D construction documents. Here are
some of the ways you can benefit from using
BIM Increased accuracy. The computerized
modeling of a building in 3D instead of 2D
provides greater precision and makes it easier
for contractors to know exactly where to place
things. This will lead to less wasted materials
and less time spent on site by subcontractors,
which means lower project costs overall.

  • Improved coordination with stakeholders. With
    this new level of precision, you can create more
    accurate models, increasing your ability to
    coordinate with stakeholders on the ground floor
    who need information for items like, but not
    limited to, flooring square footage, conduit
    length, or mechanical equipment placement.
  • Reduced environmental impact. Not only does the
    increased precision decrease the amount of waste
    on your site, but it also decreases fuel
    consumption as fewer people are driving back and
    forth between sites for measurements or
    clarification on what needs to be done next. The
    model provides quantifiable data that can
    eliminate needs of excess.

How to Implement BIM into Your Business Processes
  • BIM is best used during the pre-coordination and
    coordination phases of your project. It can help
    you visualize your building site, design
    components, and work with contractors to
    coordinate the project.
  • BIM is also useful for communicating with
    stakeholders. It can eliminate miscommunication
    that might happen because of different
    interpretations or versions of plans. This leads
    to better coordination and understanding between
    all parties involved in the process.
  • One challenge for some companies is getting
    started with BIM. Theyre afraid that it will be
    time- consuming, costly, and difficult to
    implement into their process. However, many
    companies find that over time, these challenges
    become less daunting as they learn more about how
    BIM works and what makes it beneficial for their
    companys operations overall.

Conclusion
BIM is a tool that has many benefits that are
useful to both the construction industry and the
building owners. The increased accuracy, faster
project timelines, and improved coordination
with stakeholders make it an asset to any
business. If youre interested in learning more
