Creating MEP models (mechanical, electrical, plumbing/public health/hydraulic and fire) in the BIM format helps visualise the design of spatially coordinated MEP systems clearly and simply. These intelligent, detailed 3D representations can be used as the basis for walk-throughs, sequencing, creating detailed drawings, pricing and installation.
Extensive experience in MEP BIM/3D BIM coordination has seen our BIM experts contribute effectively to the design drawings of healthcare institutions, commercial offices, mixed-use buildings, educational institutes, retail spaces, stadia, transportation hubs and industrial sites.
Our MEP BIM services include:
Accurate MEP drawings smoothly facilitate design progression, MEP installation and building maintenance. Creating detailed CAD drawings for MEP design and coordination workflows, our drafting support caters to all MEP services and elements, including risers, plant rooms, floor layouts for underfloor, mid-level and within the ceiling void areas.
Conforming to the corporate style and standards of each global customer and region, our draftsmen fully understand the requirements of building services globally and deliver MEP drafting and drawing services, such as:
Ensuring no clashes in the representation of MEP systems and components, addressing spatial issues before construction begins and ultimately helping prevent site-based delays, disputes and obstructions, our BIM coordinators provide precise spatial building services coordination with other disciplines.
We create, validate and deliver spatially coordinated building services models and drawings - ensuring a ‘clash-free solution’ by providing:
Spatially coordinated, Revit 3D models featuring all building services elements, including plant rooms, building risers, corridors and room distribution
Coordination of all building services in a 3D environment with other disciplines, such as architectural and structural elements
Considering prefabricated project requirements for plant areas, risers and ceiling modules
Spatially coordinated, installation-ready building services drawings
Defining and precisely representing spaces and zones in a building model for validation of MEP design, our MEP BIM modellers consistently create accurate and reliable MEP models, such as:
Duct system models - for the building’s heating and cooling needs, placing air terminals, mechanical equipment and duct routing layouts and HVAC plants, chillers, fan coil units, fire dampers, grille and diffuser layouts
Electrical system models - to place devices, lighting fixtures and electrical equipment, including ladder, tray, containment and electrical controls
Plumbing/public health/hydraulic systems models - by placing mechanical components for a supply or return system to determine the best routing for plumbing
Fire system models - including sprinkler mains and distribution, prevention equipment, sensors, detectors and alarms
MEP fabrication models - including DfMA and prefabricated modules, MEP systems in a structural frame that fits into corridors, risers or plant rooms
Scan to BIM modelling - for the creation of 3D intelligent BIM models from point cloud data
Revit Family modelling - creation of bespoke as well as manufacturer-specified components for building engineering projects
Integrating prefabricated MEP (M&E) components and services into a module or assembly enables the completed modules to be used for risers, corridors, plant rooms and energy centres. Our MEP prefabrication services can help save time, increase profitability, improve on-site safety and increase productivity for Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), prefabrication, modular or off-site fabrication projects.
