MEP Fabrication Modelling Challenges
The MEP fabrication modelling process is widely used in commercial and residential construction projects today because it improves project schedules which save costs and also improves on-site productivity as well as safety and space utilisation by shifting the fabrication process offsite. Prefabrication modelling offsite requires detailed and accurate MEP (M&E) pre-fabrication models and drawings….
Infographic – MEP COORDINATION – An Introduction
It is a key element of MEP design and is concerned with spatial configuration and layout of building services trades (HVAC, pipe work, public health and electrical systems). It also takes into account the location of elements from other disciplines such as architecture and structure….
How is 3D Building Services Design Helping Coordination?
The building services design industry has seen a lot progress in the past decade. The majority of developments can be attributed to have come from within the industry and few from other sources such as government regulations and economic developments. One of the biggest factors that has led …..
Key Drivers leading the movement to BIM for the MEP Industry
In the last decade, building services projects have seen many developments that have been beneficial. Most of these developments have been contributed from within the industry and also from other sources, such as government regulations and ….
MEP Design and MEP Installation Challenges
In the MEP (M&E) industry, the smooth progression of an MEP consultant’s design into well-coordinated constructible drawings and models is fundamental to the project’s success. Compared with the architectural and structural engineering disciplines, the structure of a typical MEP project team is typically more
3 Ways to Avoid MEP BIM Design and Coordination Scope Overlaps
In the MEP (M&E) industry, the success of adopting BIM practices depends largely on the level of interaction between the MEP (M&E) design consultant and the contractor. Whereas during the non-BIM era, responsibilities including conceptual design, detailed 3D modeling, and 3D building services coordination have
Approaching MEP BIM Projects Using Coordination Specialists
The MEP (M&E) design and contracting industry across the globe faces renewed challenges with the advent of BIM which is increasingly used by AEC firms. Firstly, of all the major stakeholders involved in an AEC project, building systems design and engineering historically formed the last phase of
3D MEP Coordination: An Effective Way to Reduce Rework and Increase Efficiency
As the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry faces tremendous pressure to deliver optimal projects within stringent deadlines, improving process efficiency and reducing rework is certainly the need of the hour. The design and construction-related rework is one of
The Two Methods of MEP Coordination
MEP is an acronym used for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing systems for building projects. With the increasing complexity and functionality of each system, MEP activities are not confined to the traditional mechanical, electrical and plumbing system but also…..
Typical Stages Involved in MEP Coordination
One of the most integral practices undertaken in the pre-construction phase, MEP coordination demands special attention from all the AEC professionals involved in a project. This process ensures that the building’s architectural design and its structural framework don’t interfere or
