MEP MODELING AND SHOP DRAWINGS

 

MB BIM works closely with trade contractors to model mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems based off of design drawings, shop drawings, and specifications including the associated insulation, clearances, and supports. These models are then coordinated with architecture, structure, fire protection, and existing elements. From these models, installation drawings are developed to communicate the coordinated conditions to the field. Determine if any design changes may be needed to install work efficiently and properly. Coordinating building systems in advance allows for systems to be fabricated and installed quickly and reduce the risk of rework.

This service includes:

  • Review of design drawings and generate RFI's based off coordination issues that are design based

  • Model mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and their associated insulation, clearances, and supports based off of design drawings, shop drawings, and specifications. Systems will be modeled with input of trade subcontractors and how they prefer for them to be installed.

  • Coordinate MEP content with architecture, structure, fire protection, and existing elements. Evaluate the architectural and structural models for content that may be missing, but will affect coordination

 

Additional services include:

  • Develop coordination drawing to describe to coordinated size and location of modeled building systems

  • Provide models and support to the field to ensure content is being installed in accordance with the coordinated model

The advantages of this service include:

  • Minimize schedule delays due to field coordination and flush out design or coordination issues prior to work being installed

  • Reduce rework and associated costs with better collaboration between trades prior to work being installed

  • Increase the quality of the final product by using higher quality shop and installation drawings
