CHALLENGES & SOLUTION
So, first, we fix the drainage position and install sleeves in those beams. Then we begin working on HVAC, changing duct size using CFM calculations, reducing maximum possible height and increasing width while maintaining a 1:3 height-to-width ratio. Following that, we coordinated each service and extracted precise shop drawings and penetration drawings for execution.
Change orders are a major cause of project cost increases and delays. In this Project BIM Models assist us in detecting the need for any change orders during the design stage, as well as modifications made virtually in the model rather than physically in the construction. Updating a virtual model is less expensive than disassembling and reassembling actual installations, resulting in lower material and labor costs.
It makes it simple to detect location conflicts between multiple MEP components. If two building systems overlap, the corresponding team is notified. When equipment location conflicts reach the construction phase, they can lead to change orders and project delays. BIM reduces the likelihood of errors and problems on the job site.
