InEight Model

Manage your construction information from a common data environment and connect models to data.


Maintain a living Federated Model Environment

Connect every stakeholder in a single environment, regardless of the number and types of models.

Light up the model to create quick, powerFUL visualizations

Highlight the model to display progress, status or upcoming areas of focus.

Link documents, data and other media with your model elements

Use the model to navigate your project data and make it easy for stakeholders to quickly find what they need.

Manage Cross-Team Coordination

Manage coordination, find and track clashes and visualize issue hot spots in a federated model environment.



With unprecedented data integration to the model, InEight’s virtual design and construction solution standardizes disparate models and project data into one common data environment.

  • Streamline design coordination and visually review potential design clashes in 3D
  • Quickly save and share contextually rich model views with the project team
  • Reduce your estimate takeoff time by utilizing quantities from the model, pushed directly into InEight Estimate
  • Create an enriched digital twin and maintain a complete history of project data that can extend into maintenance and operations

Common Challenges

For Owners

For Contractors

Data isn’t aggregated into a single model environment

Aggregate every piece of design, construction, and as-built data into a single model environment.

Lack of a complete digital twin

Create a digital twin that you can use for operations and maintenance over the lifetime of your asset.

Limited or no standards for model deliverables

Enforce modeling and deliverable standards with automated rules and auditing workflows.

Improve team collaboration

Provide your entire project team with a platform to collect and manage all project models and related project content.

Limited ability to visually report project progress

Visually report project progress in 3D, including work complete and open issues.

Reduce estimate takeoff time

Reduce your estimate takeoff time by utilizing quantities from the model, pushed directly into InEight’s cost estimating solution.

Disparate data files at handover

Transform design data into construction data into as-built data, aggregating disparate files into a single model to deliver to the client at handover.

Lack of a complete digital twin

Link your 3D assets with every piece of work data and documentation to deliver a complete digital twin during handover.

Access a single, shared model

Aggregate models across disciplines for a single, shared model environment the entire project team can access for conflict resolution.

Great customer service as usual. Out of our technology providers InEight has the absolute best customer service.

BIM SOLUTION Model Features


What are the benefits of a digital twin?

A digital twin provides two primary benefits — the most common is its ability to help the owner optimize the operation of a facility, asset, or system, while the less commonly realized benefit is the advantage a digital twin provides a contractor during turnover. A digital twin provides an easy-to-follow recipe for a pristine project deliverable and allows both contractors and owners to gain insights from a snapshot of the project or facility.

What are the advantages of 3D quantity takeoff?

Traditional quantity takeoff requires going through multiple drawings to collect dimensional data, and then typing that data into a software program to calculate desired quantities. With a 3D model, the dimensional data is used directly in calculations and summations for the desired quantities. With support of model analysis and data transformation tools, quantities can be calculated quickly and synced to estimating tools.

What is 3D model aggregation?

To get a comprehensive visual of a facility, project, or scope of work, you’ll need the ability to combine 3D model data regardless of where it came from. Model aggregation often combines the 3D models from design, construction and various trade partners into a single environment, allowing coordination issues to be identified and resolved, and providing stakeholders with access to the overall project.

What is Building Information Modeling (BIM)?

Building Information Modeling is, at its core, the connection between 3D models and relevant detail information. Often, BIM is the practice of creating a data rich 3D federated model that provides a collaborative environment for cross-functional teams. Architects, engineers, contractors and owners can streamline work processes using a single BIM environment.

What is clash detection?

Clash detection is a crucial part of a BIM process, speeding up project activities by allowing teams to coordinate from digital design files before hitting obstacles. When project groups bring together 3D models into a single common environment, the use of clash detection tools help the teams check for hard and soft clashes for resolution prior to wasting time and materials.
