To optimize the design and execution of an enterprise, the first design solutions can be defined based on the concept of modular coordination associated with the interoperability and efficiency of BIM tools. The objective of this paper was to apply the concept of modular coordination associated with BIM in the architectural design process of a residential condominium, to explore the possibilities of project customization. To this end, two work fronts were adopted, the development of the design flexibility and customization process and the development of an application on the BIM platform. As a result, the modular coordination applied to the design and customization, associated with the customization of the BIM tool, proved to be viable, considering the expectations of the company studied about the rationalization of the design and execution processes. The customization of the space by the client added social value to the project from the beginning, and the predefinition of the finishing and construction system added economic and environmental value to the project. It was also verified that the use of modular coordination in the development of the architectural project of a residential condominium generated several benefits, highlighting the flexibility and customization of the project for each residence, the viability of using the BIM tool, and the rationalization of the construction process.
