Spatially coordinated 3D model with accurate drawings enable seamless MEP installation for commercial project in USA
99% accuracy (FTR) resulted in cost and time savings
Hassle-free installation of MEPF components
High client satisfaction (4/5) throughout project
The client is a US based building engineering and consulting firm providing HVAC, plumbing, and electrical engineering services to a global clientele for 20+ years.
For one of their commercial projects, the client had 2D designs of the MEP systems. But to ensure accurate component and error free installation, they wanted to get a 360-degree visualization of the electrical, plumbing and ventilation systems at the pre-construction stage itself. For this they required a coordinated 3D MEP BIM model.
They partnered with HitechDigital to get:
Spatially coordinated clash-free 3D models for MEP systems
Complete set of construction documentation for service design and placement of electrical, ventilation, and plumbing systems
Electric Lighting Plan
Electric Power Plan
3D Model – Electric Power
There were multiple project challenges such as:
Coordinating with various multi-disciplinary offsite design teams working across different geographies and time zones
Conforming to a very stringent and short timeline
The team at HitechDigital delivered a coordinated and clash free 3D MEP model for Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing disciplines.
They also created detailed drawings for electrical, ventilation, and plumbing systems to ensure accurate spatial coordination, precise component as well as hassle-free installation.
BIM experts at HitechDigital studied and analyzed the 2D primary designs including 2D CAD files, sketches and sample projects sent by the client as input.
They modelled the electrical components in 3D Revit.
They were then coordinated with other Mechanical, Plumbing, and Fire protection trades.
A final interdisciplinary coordinated Revit 3D MEP model was created.
Clash detection reports were generated using Navisworks; all clashes were resolved in the Revit model.
Client reviews were conducted at every stage to receive feedback or any changes in the coordinated 3D model for enhanced data validity
The approved 3D model was used to extract sections, shop drawings, BOQs, schematics
Revit families and manufacturing datasheets were also created to achieve spatial coordination and accurate component fabrication
Quality checks at various levels and predefined parameters were performed to achieve the desired accuracy
Tools and Technology used: Revit, Navisworks
