ISO-19650 Process Implementation
We understand the importance of international standards in construction projects. That's why we incorporate the ISO-19650 standard in our BIM services. This standard provides a framework for managing information, including the exchange and organizing for all stakeholders involved in your building projects.
Our team of experts has a deep understanding of this standard and how to implement it effectively. We provide guidance and support to help you align your operations with ISO-19650 requirements, ensuring greater efficiency, improved collaboration, and reduced risk in your construction projects.
BIM Consulting Services for
All Phases of Construction
From the initial concept phase to the final handover, our BIM services cover every stage of your construction project. We create detailed, multi-dimensional models that facilitate visualization, planning, design, construction, and management of your buildings.
At each step, we utilize the power of BIM to facilitate communication, enhance decision-making, and streamline the construction process. Our models are not just drawings; they are dynamic tools that evolve with your project, providing reliable information throughout the construction lifecycle.
Whether you're an architect looking for assistance with design visualization, a contractor needing detailed construction models, or a facility manager seeking efficient maintenance planning, our BIM services can meet your needs. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you achieve your construction goals.
Project Documentation & Coordination Services
Innovation 7 offers a variety of documentation and coordination services across the BIM ecosystem. When talking to us about your project, we will determine a strategy that works best for your needs.

After Delivery Asset
Information Model (AIM)
Innovation 7 and our BIM team offers specialized support for your post-delivery Asset Information Model (AIM).
Our goal is to help you maximize the value of your Building Information Modeling (BIM) data throughout the lifecycle of your facility.
What is an Asset Information Model (AIM)?
An Asset Information Model (AIM) is a comprehensive digital representation of a building or infrastructure that includes data related to its design, construction, and operational performance. Created from the Project Information Model (PIM), the AIM is a valuable resource for facility managers and operators after project handover.
Our BIM Model Management Service for AIM
Managing and updating your AIM is crucial to ensure it continues to provide accurate, up-to-date information about your asset. Our expert team offers various services to help you maintain, update, and utilize your AIM effectively.
1. AIM Maintenance
We help you keep your AIM in optimal condition, ensuring all data stays current and relevant. This includes regular updates to reflect any changes or modifications of your asset.
4. AIM Training
We provide comprehensive training to ensure your team can use and update the AIM effectively. This empowers your facility management team to fully leverage the power of your AIM.
2. AIM Analysis
We assist you in extracting valuable insights from your AIM. This can include analyzing performance data, identifying potential issues, and advising on preventative maintenance strategies.
5. AIM Consultation
We offer expert advice on how to best utilize your AIM for strategic decision-making. This includes providing guidance on asset lifecycle planning, cost management, and operational efficiency.
3. AIM Integration
If you have multiple systems or databases, we help integrate your AIM with these systems. This creates a unified source of truth, improving the accessibility and usability of your data.
We are proud to announce our partnership with the First Peoples Innovation Center and the FabLab ONAKI. At Innovation 7 , we believe in empowering communities through technology and innovation.
As part of this commitment, we are excited to roll out a specialized Autodesk Revit training program for an Indigenous cohort of 10 at the esteemed First Peoples Innovation Center.
