MEP MODELING & COORDINATION - MIXED USE BUILDING
Building Type: Mixed-use building
Input from the client: CAD & pdf drawings
Deliverables: LOD 350 Clash Free MEPF Model & Shop Drawings
Software Used: Revit 2018 & Navisworks 2018
Scope: LOD 350 MEPF Modeling, Coordination, Clash Resolution & Shop Drawings
Team Size: 4 BIM Engineers
QA/QC Team: 1 Quality Checker
QA/QC Procedure: As Per Client Specification
Scope & Procedure
We were required to do Mechanical, electrical, plumbing, HVAC and electrical modeling and coordination inter and intradisciplinary for the mixed-use building project in the USA with a built-up area of 350000 square feet. We have received the structural and architectural model in Revit & Navisworks along with 2D cad drawings and pdf for MEPF. We have generated the LOD 350 MEPF model in Revit and coordinated the entire model in Navisworks and run the clash tests. within MEPF and with structural and architectural models. Based on the clash report i.e HVAC vs structure, HVAC vs plumbing, HVAC vs fire, HVAC vs mechanical piping, etc. the clash reports were prepared in a specific format as per client requirement to communicate the clashes. Upon receiving the clash resolution guideline, we change the Revit model accordingly and re-run the clash test until the time model is 100 percent clash-free. The clash tests were performed area and level wise as per the requirement of the client. Once the model was clash-free and accepted by the client, we have produced the shop drawings for HVAC, plumbing, mechanical piping, fire and electrical.
The core challenge for this project was to deliver the project on time. A total of 4 BIM engineers was deployed for this project. Our well-experienced team performed well to overcome the challenges and delivered the modeling part on time. The coordination was another challenge as it was necessary to communicate with multiple stakeholders and get daily inputs from them to resolve the clashes until the time the MEP BIM model is 100% clash-free.
The client was looking for MEP BIM modeling and coordination. We have deployed a team of 4 mechanical engineers and 1 quality checker to ensure quality and on-time delivery. The project was delivered on the basis of fixed lump sum fees.
