MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) services are often considered by most in the construction industry to be a means to an end, restricting architectural and structural creativity. MEP services, however, are the lifeblood of a building and are fundamentally the main source of pain for facility managers. This class will focus on managing MEP data propagation from design concept through to facilities management, identifying the importance of MEP systems completion and appropriate assignment right through to addition of data to components at the various phases of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) delivery. This class will capitalize on an array of Autodesk, Inc., technologies, including Revit software, Navisworks Manage software, and BIM 360 software. For anyone involved in the MEP and construction industries, this class is a must as an aid in understanding the end goals for model handover and also the benefits to each project stakeholder at each BIM delivery phase.
- Discover the importance of strategic MEP systems’ creation and management
- Gain insight into Level of Development requirements pertaining to MEP services at each delivery phase
- Discover the tangible benefits to all project stakeholders
- Have an open discussion on pain points for each project stakeholder
