Revit Mep Tip

Of late, the construction industry has been dealing with issues such as over-budget projects, declining productivity and failing to meet delivery dates. As economies stall around the world, builders continue to demand better buildings delivered within budget and on time. Architects, engineers and MEP contractors are thus constantly striving for newer ways to improve productivity, lower costs and streamline the building design and delivery process. BIM which is an information-rich technology that allows the digital representation of building projects simulating the design, planning, construction and operation of a facility has instilled a hope to minimize these issues to a large extent.
Regarded as a promising, new technology, BIM has been widely adopted for MEP projects as it has pre-construction, design and fabrication benefits. BIM provides MEP engineers with integrated, highly coordinated and internally consistent computable information about the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing system for planning, managing, decision-making and operating the facility. Using these offerings, designing a complicated structure can be done with ease, increased accuracy and efficiency. Since BIM allows creation of a virtual 3D model, it gives a better idea of the outcome of their systems before they are actually built.
