We combine the experience of our in-house chartered
engineers and 3D CAD coordinators to produce fully
coordinated BIM solutions

3D MEP Services Coordination

The production of fully coordinated 3D MEP services models is essential in today’s construction industry, enabling the professional and construction team to validate, optimise and coordinate design information within a virtual environment. 3D coordinated service models bring significant improvements to the installation process, improving the transition between design and construction.

Benefits

  • Improved coordination of services through the production of a coordinated, clash free, virtual model
  • Enables the early identification and rectification of coordination issues, resulting in the reduction of installation time and costs
  • Reduces waste and man-hours by reducing the requirement for site-based modifications/variations
  • Provides functionality for the automated generation of Quantity take offs/Bill of Materials (BOMs) enabling more accurate data management and extraction
  • Supports the manufacturing and fabrication processes through the integration of manufacturing, estimating and scheduling technology
  • Supports the off-site manufacturing/modularisation process improving the efficiency of on-site service installation
  • Improves the quality, detail and accuracy of construction documentation

KE can produce fully coordinated, clash free, 3D MEP models including plantroom, riser & spatial coordination, in addition to supporting construction documentation to support the 3D model. We provide services ranging from specialist sub-contractor service coordination, through to multi-disciplinary coordination across all trades, including HVAC, public health, fire protection and pre-fabricated modular services.

Realising the benefits that pre-fabricated, off-site manufacturing brings to a construction project we can identify modular service requirements early in the coordination process. Modules are designed using the latest 3D software to exacting manufacturing standards and incorporated into the overall 3D MEP model. Individual module working drawings are produced including 3D views, BOMs and fully dimensioned plans, sections and elevations to allow for manufacture and site installation.
