4 Benefits Of BIM For MEP Engineers - Chudasama Outsourcing

Importance of BIM for MEP Engineers

When you hear the term Building Information model do you only think 3Dif so you might only have part of the story. Let me explain why traditional CAD software enables users to create mechanical electrical and plumbing systems in 2d. This helps convey construction intent and basic documentation. However working in a Building Information model(BIM) means MEP engineers access critical design data directly from the architectural model.

This design data can include rooms real-time ceiling elevations and walls that accommodate electrical devices and plumbing fixtures not only that structural engineers civil engineers and surveyors can all have input into the model. The resulting digital model includes information the entire team needs to make decisions during the design process as well as data the fabricators and subcontractors need to construct a building.

Before knowing the benefits Of BIM for MEP Engineers I would like to introduce my company Chudasama  Outsourcing which is a BIM Outsourcing company that offers best solutions for MEP BIM Services needs. We have an experienced team of MEP engineers and BIM Modeling experts who are developing MEP BIM models with the international industrial codes and standards of construction and safety.

Building owners also benefit from a model that allows them to digitally maintain facilities over the lifecycle of the building. 

The Top four benefits of BIM to MEP professionals include the following 


1. 3D Modeling And Collision Detection

As you probably suspect BIM technology enables efficient 3d modeling and collision detection.

2. Reach Responsibility Of Data 

Objects are encoded with not only dimensional data but a variety of other attributes like energy performance data component materials and finishes and cost information this rich repository of data enables a more efficient design process for MEP teams. For example detailed information in the model enables complex calculations to be done automatically. A change in the mechanical system automatically cascades changes to Associated electrical devices and plumbing systems the power needs of the mechanical equipment specified in the initial design can be tracked for improved cross-discipline coordination. This data can be used to update mechanical and electrical equipment along with the total building electrical needs using load classifications and demand factors for populating panel board schedules. 

The information in the model can be used to automatically calculate flow and help size hydronic pipe and duct systems 


3. Sustainable Building Process

Taking it a step further these changes can be used by any of the disciplines working on the project and they will be easily reflected in the Associated material takeoff and cost estimates as well as the energy performance calculations on the facility as a whole, the result MEP teams can contribute to a building process that is more efficient and results in less environmental impact. 

4. Competitive Advantages

since Building Information modeling is quickly becoming the norm in the AEC industry the adoption of BIM and being able to create a coordinated model can help MEP firms differentiate themselves and gain a competitive advantage for more information on how your MEP team can incorporate BIM give us an Email [email protected] for Chudasama Outsourcing.
