This session will explain how BIM-MEPAUS develops a best-practice, virtual-design-to-physical-construction BIM MEP methodology. This methodology promotes integrated project delivery within the Australian MEP industry through accurate design-to-commission as-built and design-to-fabrication workflows, structured and consistent modeling practices, plus industry standardization-delivering improved supply-chain efficiency and communication.
- Understand how industry collaboration and standardization deliver improved supply chain efficiency
- Understand how the structured approach to the specification and modeling of Revit families improves communication
- Understand how reliable and accurate "Design to Commission as-built" workflows can be used by FM
- Understand how reliable and accurate "design to fabrication" workflows improve working practices
