US Framing and MiTek® are leading the way in Building Information Modeling (BIM) for wood framing. US Framing will manage and control your project through new and innovative technologies, control design stages and the framing process. We will work with your team and MEP Trades to get the design right the first time.
US Framing utilizes MiTek® Saphire software to aid in the pre construction coordination process. We take the time to create a constructible model that aids the framing process and assists field teams. This process helps both US Framing and your management start to bring the experience and capabilities necessary to frame the project correct the first time.
Further, we will provide your field personnel special tools to insure the framing is done correctly, manage the job & complete punch list.
Accurate take offs
Solve problems in the design phase
Coordinate with MEP trades for plan accuracy
Coordinate hardware into the framing

Improve communication & cooperation
Pre construction is the most important part of the project. US Framing has a whole department that works with you to insure your job is started correctly.
Looking for a reliable wood framing company that can provide pre-design services? US Framing can help you out! We have a team dedicated to pre-design and 3-D modeling, and we aim to design and solve problems before your project starts. We can provide you with a 3-D visualization of your project building using sophisticated software and settle any design issues with clients simultaneously. During the pre-design and 3-D modeling phase, we also help clients analyze the feasibility of the design, budget, and any constraints that may arise. With our experienced pre-design team guiding you, you can expect to successfully complete your project.
The pre-design phase is essentially a problem-solving period that relies heavily on cooperation with other contractors. Our pre-design team will contact clients and other contractors such as electrical, plumbing, mechanical, floor and roof trusses, hardware, and many others in order to increase the accuracy and efficiency of the design plan. By facilitating communication between the various stakeholders, our pre-design team can work together with them to create a design plan that you will be thoroughly satisfied with.
In conjunction with improving cooperation between stakeholders, US Framing also takes advantage of the benefits of advanced Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology. BIM is the industry standard for creating intuitive models and storing data. The software also automatically updates the digital model when changes are made, allowing the designers, contractors, and clients to work together collaboratively. This enables the design process to be much more efficient and reduces the chances of miscommunication and misunderstandings between the different stakeholders.
The most important factors that the pre-design and 3-D modeling phase contributes to are a clear design plan, efficient schedule, and cost-effective budget. If you want your construction project to succeed, these factors must be prioritized. Pre-design and 3-D modeling also allow 2-D designs to be translated into 3-D blueprints that are realistic representations of what the final result will look like.
US Framing’s pre-design and 3-D modeling team gathers information from clients to gain a better understanding of the clients’ goals. We also promote coordination amongst stakeholders so that experts from different fields can come together to create a design that is practical, feasible, and looks good. In addition, we use MiTek® SAPPHIRE™ software, an advanced 3-D modeling technology, to put together models that serve as the foundation for the teams on-site and for the overall wood framing process.
By focusing on completing clear deliverables at a steady pace, US Framing aims to minimize re-work and waste. Based on our decades of valuable experience in the industry, we know what works and what doesn’t, and we stick to the principles that will maximize our efficiency. We are also passionate about constantly updating our knowledge to provide clients with more reliable services and solutions.
