Firm awarded contract for multimillion-dollar Building Information Model for VA

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The KPA Group (http://www.thekpagroup.com) was selected by the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Construction and Facilities Management to develop the Building Information Model for each of the buildings and associated sites on the Palo Alto VA Campus. Approximately 60 building models will be created and over 20 unique campus site configurations will be studied. The Building Information Modeling will allow the VA planning and engineering teams to review project phasing and construction scenarios in 3D and should contribute to the overall success of the program and the life cycle management of the campus.

VA's Office of Construction and Facilities Management (CFM) has determined that Building Information Modeling (BIM) represents both an enhanced technology and a process change for the architecture-engineering-construction-facilities management industry. The VA's mission is to deliver excellent medical services and this BIM supports that mission by maximizing lifecycle building performance.

BIM provides a design, construction team with the ability to open the lines of communication among and between teams. This high level of communication and coordination ensures a better building, less changes during construction, reduced costs and better long-term building management.

The KPA Group with its seamless integration of engineering and architecture is uniquely positioned to use BIM to deliver an outstanding product to its clients like the VA.
