MEP (M&E) coordination work refers to the spatial coordination of all building services (HVAC, pipework, public health and electrical systems) with other disciplines making up the building structure, architectural elements, fabric and external envelope (steel, concrete, false ceilings, etc.).
MEP coordination or multiservice coordination is increasingly being created in a 3D environment for all the disciplines. By creating a virtual 3D model, designers and coordinators can benefit in the following ways:
One of our core skills and main activities include providing spatially coordinated building services drawings for construction and engineering projects. We perform, validate and deliver coordinated services drawings — providing a ‘clash free solution’.
Working with the design to contracting supply chain, we provide our 3D MEP (M&E) coordination services for all stages of the MEP design process, whether these are handled by the design consultant, engineering contractor or specialist trade contractors. Our output covers the following stages:
By using the latest 3D MEP (M&E) modelling software, Revit MEP, and clash detection technology, Autodesk Navisworks, for 3D building services coordination, we can verify that the 3D M&E (MEP) coordinated drawings in our spatially coordinated MEP building services models work to engineering standards and constraints as well as the structural and architectural elements within a building.
To aid the process of collaboration, BIM 360 (C4R) Team, a cloud-based collaboration tool to share project files and review on the cloud with MEP design engineering teams, multi–disciplinary consultants and MEP contractor teams across the globe. Our C4R experience covers multi-national project teams for all stages of the design process.
We provide MEP coordination services to a number of customers, including:
Our experience covers all sectors within the public and private construction sphere including healthcare, education, entertainment, commercial, industrial, retail, stadia and hospitality sectors.
Whilst we typically provide MEP coordination models and MEP coordination drawings of plant rooms, building risers, prefabricated corridor and ceiling modules, we also work on projects where process equipment and machinery is also within our 3D models. Such examples include large scale warehousing, laboratories, manufacturing lines and recycling centres.
