BIM for MEP Engineering

It has been estimated that MEP industry is one that will benefit most from usage of modern 3D software tools and BIM process. Features like automatic clash detection, bill of materials and automated calculations guarantee that MEP design can be done 50-70% faster with 3D tools than in traditional 2D. - Gavin Davids

Today’s demanding business environment is driving toward greater efficiency and integration in building industry supply chains. Owners are demanding better built buildings for less money in less time. Architects, engineers and contractors are under pressure to streamline their building design and delivery process and searching for ways to improve productivity, lower costs and deliver better quality products.

BIM for MEP is a design and documentation methodology characterized by the creation and use of coordinated, internally consistent computable information about a building’s MEP system in design and construction. This holistic approach unites not only the MEP disciplines but the whole design process with an integrated digital environment for design, documentation and analysis.

Typically, a building’s architectural and structural systems are defined well in advance of its MEP systems with only standard space allowances reserved for the latter. These reservations set the stage for inevitable conflicts between the area needed for those MEP systems and the overall cost of the building. In large, complex building designs such as hotels, high-rise apartment buildings or office complexes, squeezing the required MEP systems above the ceiling becomes particularly challenging. This modeling environment helps the MEP designer overcome the challenges of fitting the required components into tight spaces and then provides interference checking to detect collisions during the design process, which reduces the risk of construction cost overruns.
