Construction Points Plus, an innovative new service that quickly and accurately lays out points on jobsites, was awarded work to lay out thousands of points at the Ford Lima Engine Plant Renovation Project currently under way in Lima, Ohio.

“The Construction Points Plus team is extremely fast and accurate,” said Cory Gideo, Project Manager for Slifco Electric. “They can lay out 600 points a day compared to about 100 a day we would do manually.”

Using BIM technology, the team locates points on the project for mechanical pipe hangers, air handling units, high voltage cable trays, hangers for ductwork and light fixtures. They can also assist in verifying the locations of shafts, walls and openings.

“The speed and accuracy of this BIM-to-field method was beyond paperless,” said John Tauchus, Sr. BIM Integration Manager for Ghafari, the site engineer. “It was more like 3D-to-install. This is the future.”

On this project, Construction Points Plus is laying out points for three contractors: Ventcon, HVAC; Slifco Electrical; and Smith-Boughan, Mechanical.

The work of Construction Points Plus is scheduled to be completed at the end of April.
