Building Information Modeling
This model-based design approach increases efficiency and effectiveness within all types of trades. The process shows its full potential and accuracy during project delivery coordination. Benefits Include:
Capture Reality: With BIM designers can accurately capture field conditions and have all information compiled and shared in a model. This allows our design team to create some of the most accurate work the industry has seen.
Improve Production Time: BIM modeling’s extremely detailed analysis of projects immensely decreases the chance of rework. This allows each individual organization a great amount of time to work together with our design team to solve any issues ahead of time.
Resolve Conflict: BIM Modeling allows our engineers to foresee future complications or issues. The clashing of elements such as a beam pocket interfering with ductwork can be determined in advance prior to field RFI’s thanks to the BIM’s detailed report.
A&M Design Services provides accurate computer aided drafting services and shop drawings that are drafted precisely to create dimensionally accurate shop drawings. Our extremely detailed drawings show all locations of openings, beams, steel plates, curtains wall embed, sleeves, recesses, etc. in walls and slabs as per the contract documents.
Each aspect of a project depending on the complexity and size determines project estimating. An important factor in estimating a job accurately is to fully understand the scope of the project so our team can determine what is to be achieved. A&M Design Services will help in the process of planning, organizing, and controlling project resources.

Construction As-Built Drawings
As-built drawings are an essential part of every construction project. The main purpose an as-built drawing serves is to identify what changes were made throughout the course of constructing a project. The final sets of an as-built drawing holds important information; such as shop drawing changes, design changes, field changes, approved and disapproved changes during construction, and any minor or major modification to the final resulting project.
Architectural Layout Drawings
These drawings are used to develop the architects design idea, into an intelligible document that is able to communicate to builders, other practices and specialists, the concepts and ideas of a project.
- Topping Slabs
- Landscape Layouts
- Pavement Layouts
- Formliner Layouts
- Formwork Layout
Misc. Steel Drawings
- Shear Studs
- Metal Decking

“A&M Design Services had done the detailing for us on the Barnard College project. A&M did a great job on a tough project where there were a number of elements that had to be precisely detailed and coordinated with a number of trades. There were also extensive design changes that had been made as the rebar was being installed and Michael at A&M was able to make the changes for us quickly, so we would not have an impact to the schedule. I would highly recommend A&M Design Services.”Otto KoscicaRuttura & Sons Construction Co., Inc.
