This class shows the evolution of design-to-fabrication workflows within an integrated project delivery team. By adopting the BIM-MEPAUS Revit MEP software add-in, the design model is efficiently passed through to the construction team for development into a constructable LOD 400 model. Within a single Revit MEP model, services are coordinated and approved for construction while data sets are used for procurement. The model is used for ductwork fabrication using Autodesk® Fabrication CADmep™ software in an integrated workflow. Using Navisworks® Manage, the lead coordinating contractor completes the final coordination using the federated model and finalizes site point positioning setouts using positioning points embedded in the model. The model is passed to the site team and used to support installation. The class demonstrates the workflow through real-life projects, providing practical insights into the multiple benefits that can be used by adopting these workflows.
- Develop strategies to transform design models to constructible ones by refining the content throughout the BIM cycle
- Manage subcontractors' models to enable full-scale coordination
- Link a CAD-MEP database to Revit families to enable fast and accurate conversions and a range of BIM-to-field applications
- Describe key success factors for using Revit MEP within integrated project delivery teams

Brett Perez is a senior BIM Coordinator with over 17 years experience working for both Australian and International MEP consultancies. With his move to one of Australia's leading multi-services contracting firms to head up their BIM modeling team, Brett has been focusing on taking Revit® design models through to fully coordinated constructible models that provide the platform for BIM enabled project teams and supply chain work flows.Brett has been heavily involved in the development and implementation of the BIM-MEPAUS Revit® MEP Add-in template and the piloting of the Revit to CADmep workflow enabling a range of site based positioning, fabrication and procurement processes. Brett regularly presents to head contractors and clients on how the Design to fabrication workflow enables a successful, collaborative project.
