XS CAD provides dedicated 3D MEP (M&E) modelling support services to lead designers and multi-disciplinary consultants as well as MEP contractors and consultants.
We provide our MEP (M&E) modelling services on a standalone basis or as part of the complete design including the structure and the services. This is a part of our scope to validate the design and to ensure that the design is clash-free.
Our models can be created using BIM technology as an input into an overall BIM model for all domains. We currently use Revit MEP for BIM modelling or AutoCAD MEP for traditional 3D modelling.
Where we find clashes these are redesigned by the respective consultants and then remodelled by us to present a finalised clash-free design. Our MEP modelling experience is extensive and we have undertaken a range of MEP modelling projects including the following:
Our combined MEP and structural models include all aspects, such as HVAC CAD modelling, pipework CAD modelling, public health/plumbing/drainage CAD modelling, electrical CAD modelling, concrete structure modelling, steel structure modelling and external building envelope modelling.
Our modelling services are used to validate the design of MEP services within the context of the structure. In most cases, we are also asked to produce installation drawings and shop drawings that are taken from the MEP model. We use AutoCAD MEP and Revit MEP for the MEP element and Revit Architecture and Revit Structures (or AutoCAD Architecture) for the structural and architectural elements.
