Nowadays, MEP (M&E) design consultants are using BIM modeling services and Revit 3D BIM modeling to design and coordinate multi-disciplinary work in a 3D environment. BIM services identify and reduce the amount of early stage clashes in the design. Creating a collaborative BIM model allows all engineers involved to coordinate their design with other disciplines; thus, reducing the number of design clashes and resulting in costs being saved during installation.
The implementation of BIM modeling services for coordination improves clash detection compared to the traditional 2D methods used. By creating a 3D model which can be used for walkthroughs, owners and designers can avoid costly, last minute construction changes due to building services, structural and architectural building clashes. BIM modeling manages the risk during the design process by minimizing and significantly reducing constructability issues for the MEP industry. Revit 3D BIM models also allows engineers to produce accurate MEP coordination drawings as well as simplify the process for quantity takeoffs, locations, scheduling, and estimates.
