Tech Perspective

Tellepsen utilizes BIM Modeling and MEPF Coordination on nearly every project to ensure these critical systems are properly designed, fabricated, and installed. This is one more way that we strive to “do it right the first time” and avoid mistakes that can be costly and time-consuming for the project.
