BIM Coordinator (Building Information Modeling) - Dallas, Texas

Location: Dallas, TX

April 12, 2024

Employing sophisticated three-dimensional (3D) computer assisted design (CAD) modeling and clash-detection software, the BIM Coordination team is responsible for taking conceptual layouts of Swisslog Healthcare Computerized Pneumatic Tube Systems (CTS) to fully installable models that are fully integrated into a facility’s infrastructure.

The BIM Coordinator will attend both on-site and virtual MEP (mechanical-electrical- plumbing) coordination meetings with other trade contractors. Under the guidance of the BIM Manager or the Project Manager, negotiate space requirements with general contractors and other trade partners. Through this often lengthy and complex negotiation/design process, the BIM Coordination team will ensure complete system install-ability and design integrity.

This individual is responsible for managing the budgeted coordination hours and costs on each project. If, through the coordination meetings, deviations in design result in a change in scope, the BIM Coordinator is responsible for communicating the changes to the project manager so that the budget impacts can be quantified. Ideally, this individual will use experience and negotiation skills to ensure that the best interests of the company and the customer are maintained. This process not only assists in the expectation of meeting project budgets, but also ensures that the customer receives a quality pneumatic tube system (PTS) that will operate as intended.

The BIM Coordinator is expected to act independently in trade coordination meetings. They will make decisions that minimize the potential for cost increases and design changes. The ability to make immediate decisions without regular oversight is critical due to the timing of the work being performed.

During the installation phase, this individual shall work closely with Swisslog Healthcare’s installation team to ensure that the coordinated model is carried through the construction process via detailed installation drawings representing their final coordination efforts, and shall be available for any questions that should arise.

This is a hybrid position. This individual will reside in the Dallas metro area and report into our Lewisville, TX, office 2 days per week.
