MEP SCAN TO BIM - AIRPORT TERMINAL BUILDING
Building Type: Airport Terminal
Input from the client: Point Cloud
Deliverables: LOD 400 MEP BIM Model
Software Used: Revit 2018, Recap 2018
Scope: Scan to BIM, 2D floor plans
Team Size: 3 BIM Engineers
QA/QC Team: 1 Quality checker
QA/QC Procedure: Inhouse
Scope & Procedure
The project was to deliver the MEP scan to bim. We have received the point cloud data for Airport terminal building and other operations area including the baggage area. The task was to convert the point cloud data into the MEP BIM model. We have converted the point cloud to the MEP BIM model at LOD 400 level. The airport is located in Europe with an area of approx 400000 square feet. The specific procedures were followed to create the model. The naming convention was given in the right way to each element. The model was prepared with 5 mm accuracy. The expectation from the client was to have a highly accurate model with all the necessary elements. We have followed the internally developed quality check procedure in order to check the model and to deliver a highly accurate scan to the bim model. Our processes are ISO 9001: 2015 certified. Services such as plumbing, HVAC, mechanical and fire protection were modeled along with architectural and structural discipline. The MEP BIM model was also checked in Navisworks in order to avoid the clashes.
The project required a high level of accuracy not only in terms of mm to mm match with point cloud but also it was necessary to create the engineering MEP model with all necessary elements. The time was also constrained. We have prepared the LOD 400 MEP BIM model with all support, hangers and other necessary installation elements. Another challenge was to perform the multiple quality check processes in order to ensure there are no errors. We delivered the project on time with quality up to the client's expectations.
The requirement of the client was to convert the point cloud to a highly detailed MEP model. The project was charged on the lump sum basis. In order to meet the tight deadline, 4 MEP modeler and one quality checker were deployed on the project.
