From our design & presentation technology to jobsite staging tools – Nucor is impacting the way developers, contractors, and sales people interact with their building projects, from start to finish.
Impact Your Project from Start to Finish with BIM & Virtual Reality
Technology is constantly evolving, and impacting our lives in major ways – and the metal buildings industry is no different. Virtual reality provides a better sense of scale and a more realistic experience – impacting the way developers, contractors, sales people and clients interact with their building from start to finish.
3D Building Information Modeling – BIM
Nucor Buildings Group uses the powerful value of 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) software to more effectively design, detail, and manufacture your custom metal building. BIM is the process of generating and managing building data and its various components throughout the building’s lifecycle. This game-changing technology provides a detailed, three-dimensional conceptual replica of your building, allowing you to see your project as it will be when constructed in the field.
More Than Conceptual Modeling
BIM encompasses building geometry, spatial relationships, geographic information, quantities and properties of building components. Ultimately, the resulting model is usable for fabrication — involving a ground-up reality rather than top-down theory. The BIM process produces a digital prototype, building it virtually prior to in reality. Having the 3D digital prototype gives you a view to all structural, HVAC, mechanical electrical and plumbing systems, allowing you to address potential conflicts prior to fabrication. Your 3D model includes both images and product specification data with the ability to manage your building data throughout the building’s lifecycle, providing shared knowledge and communication between all persons involved.
Virtual Reality & Rendering for Your Custom Steel Building
Nucor Buildings Group uses the most technologically advanced virtual reality software. Using virtual reality and augmented reality, you can give your customers the ability to turn a 3D BIM model into an immersive, real world experience. Virtual reality provides a better sense of scale than on-screen and paper models. Thanks to our advanced 3D rendering programs, you can see exactly what a building is going to look like before it’s built, ensuring no surprises during the building process.

The Best Jobsite Staging Tool in the Industry
Offered exclusively to NBG’s Authorized Builders, ShakeoutProTM, is a unique mobile app specifically developed to help you save time receiving, unloading, and staging steel on the jobsite. All you need is a smart device — no additional equipment is required. Using the app, you simply scan the part with the camera on your smart device. The part becomes highlighted on your screen, allowing you to determine where to stage it on your site for maximum efficiency during construction.
