By including Buist Electric during the design phase of the construction process, every single piece of the engineering process is uniquely integrated to the end goal.
Buist Electric’s Design and Build Department offers valuable assistance in managing the complexities of the construction process. Our experienced design team is well-equipped to aid owners, general contractors and other engineering professionals in providing timely solutions to today’s construction challenges.
Total Station / Trimble
Buist was one of the first adopters in Michigan and owns two Total Stations. Having a total station allows us to quickly and accurately identify and mark fixture points, floor boxes, anchor points, as well as a host of other time and money-saving uses.
For our Engineering Team, we recognize that electrical short circuit studies are a valuable part of the build process. That’s why we always use the latest software and continue to train our teams to execute studies with excellence.
Arc Flash Studies
Our studies include a complete facility survey, one-line diagram, arc hazard analysis, short circuit study, and equipment labeling.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Buist, with a strong value for innovation, has utilized BIM on a number of large-scale, high profile projects. These include, but are not limited to, such projects as Metro Health Hospital, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, Van Andel Institute, and Midland Hospital. We are ready to show you how this process can render a 3-D, animated digital building model that accurately predicts building performance before ground is even broken.
