MEP Coordination

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:

  • Ensures there are no clashes (validated using clash detection software tools)
  • Represents all mechanical components/kit accurately (unlike 2D CAD drawings) and thus ensure that spatial issues are addressed before getting to site
  • Prevents site-based delays and disputes, as all services have been proven to work together
  • Allows views, sections and detailed drawings to be produced easily and quickly
  • Allows easy communication, as the 3D model can be viewed and walked through for demo, review, value engineering or QC purposes by building services trades
  • Ensures faster approval/sign off (compared with 2D drawings alone)

What We Provide

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’.

We provide:

  • Spatially coordinated, installation friendly Revit 3D models featuring all building services (mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire) within the context of architectural, structural and process models
  • Spatially coordinated building services drawings for MEP (M&E) consulting engineers and building engineering services contractors, mechanical contractors, electrical contractors and specialist trade contractors
  • In a 3D environment, mechanical, electrical and plumbing services are coordinated with other disciplines, such as architectural components, fabric, steel and concrete features.
  • MEP (M&E) coordinated 3d models and drawings for plant rooms, building risers, prefabricated corridors and ceiling modules

Design Stages We Cover

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:

  • Concept
  • Tender
  • Contract
  • Coordination
  • Approval
  • Construction
  • Fabrication
  • As-fitted (record or as-built) stages

Software We Use

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, we use Collaboration for Revit (C4R) and BIM 360 Team, both cloud-based collaboration tools 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.

Our Customers

We provide MEP coordination services to a number of customers, including:

  • Multi-disciplinary design consultants (either for design only deliverables or for more detailed design deliverables that can be used along the supply chain)
  • Mechanical and electrical design engineers
  • Sustainability MEP consultants
  • Specialist design consultants (fire, acoustic, sustainability, etc.)
  • MEP building services contractors and MEP trades
  • Facilities management firms
  • Project leaders
  • VDC (virtual design & construction) coordinators
  • BIM managers

Our Project Experience

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.
