With our qualified professionals we offer a wide range of Electrical BIM Services. We model the Electrical Equipment, Conduits, Cable Trays, Lighting Fixtures, Communication & Data Transmission devices, Network Routing and Fire Alarm Systems etc. The Coordination Model will be free from clashes with the other members like HVAC & Plumbing Systems, Architectural, Structural members etc. We are familiar with International Codes like International Building Code (IBC), National Electrical Code (NEC) and International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
What We Do
We provide turnkey solutions to Electrical Design Consultants and Electrical Contractors in developing 3D Models from PDF, AutoCAD or Point Cloud input. All the 3D models developed are aligned with the Project BIM Standards and Design Specification mandated for the project.
The Electrical Models developed are coordinated with the Architecture, Structure, Mechanical, Fire Protection and Plumbing models to identify any potential clashes or accessibility issues. The issues identified are raised as RFI’s to produce a clash free model before the extraction of drawings.
What We Deliver
The Scope of the Project involves the LOD 400 Modelling & Coordination of MEP Services and the extraction of Shop Drawings for the Sport Complex building in Qatar.
Do you have any questions? We will be happy to advise you.
Our Electrical BIM Services
Modeling of Electrical Lighting Systems
With the use of BIM, we are placing intelligent 3D Lighting Objects model with all the data integrated. A lighting scheme developed in BIM has the capability to deliver the performance data even without the use of third-party software’s like Dialux. The integration of lighting calculation into BIM enables the client to visualize the Candela requirements per rooms or per floor.
The Electrical Light Fixtures modelling with the necessary data like name, size, type, and photometric data can be used to perform Lighting and Energy analysis. With the ability to develop Photo-realistic renderings from the 3D model, the lighting designers can identify lighting pollution and analyse whether the lighting requirements for the project are satisfied based on the project requirements and building codes.
By performing daylight analysis using BIM, the designers can understand the natural light availability of a particular space. With the ability to measure the day light, designers can make better design decisions such as the selection of lighting fixtures (dimmable fixtures, ballasts etc.) and the use of specific lighting control systems to supplement the daylight.
Schedule of Circuits & Panel Boards
In the traditional method of CAD Drafting, Electrical Panel Board Schedules has to be calculated Manually or with the support of a third-party software. Even with the use of a third-party software the data has to be gathered and input after reviewing the individual Electrical Drawings. With the advancement of BIM, every data is object oriented and the schedules can be easily generated from the model itself.
Benefits of BIM Coordination for Electrical Contractors
With the use of BIM, Electrical Contractors can develop 3d electrical models comprising of lighting and power systems, power feeders, cable trays, conduits, duct banks, electrical equipment like transformers, generators etc. The use of a coordinated Electrical Model brings the benefits of offsite prefabrication, avoid labor and material wastage and there by increase the overall project efficiency by saving time and cost on installation.
