Use of BIM for Plumbing Projects brings better understanding of design, reduced timeline and overall budget.
When designing a new plumbing system from scratch or when modifying an existing one, with the implementation of BIM, a Plumbing Contractor can balance the customer expectations in terms of budget, functionality and timeline.
The use of BIM for Plumbing is already an industry standard as more and more jobs involve some level of collaboration during the design stage. The modelling of Plumbing services brings an opportunity for better understanding of the design.
The BIM Dimensions can be defined as the levels of information that contain within a BIM Data model. Each dimension refers to a specific type of information contained in a BIM model. As per the requirements and complexity of the project these dimensions are added. Every time an extra set of information is added to the process, an additional layer of dimension is added.
What We Do
Our Plumbing BIM Services enables 3D visualization of all the Plumbing systems like Drainage, Water Supply, Vent, Medical and Natural Gas etc. We also support in Coordination & Interference checks among other trades through an automated clash detection process using tools like Autodesk Navisworks.
From a Coordinated model, we are capable of generating Spool Drawings, Fabrication Drawings, Sleeve & Hanger drawings, Quantity Estimation for Plumbing fixtures, Accessories, Fittings etc.
What We Deliver
Our Plumbing BIM Services includes:
- Process Piping Layouts
- Steam and Boiler Piping Layouts
- Domestic (Hot/ Cold) water piping Layouts
- Sanitary and Vent System Piping Layouts
- Storm water Drainage System Layouts
- Compressed Air and Fuel/Medical Gas Piping Layouts
- Spool Drawings & Fabrication Drawings
- Quantity Estimation for Plumbing Fixtures, Fittings and Accessories
- Sleeve & Hanger Drawings
LEED Certification, a rating system released by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC) for buildings to verify that a building is design and constructed using strategies aimed to improve metric that matters Carbon emissions, water efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor air quality and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
The collaborative BIM database provides Architects, Engineers and Contractors an accessible platform to easily collect and analyze LEED data as a part of the green building benchmarks mandated before the construction phase.
