This class will present BAM's approach to MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) through the design, engineering, and subcontractor Building Information Modeling (BIM) process, along with the end in mind for facilities management (FM) operations. We’ll look at how BAM worked closely with Autodesk Consulting to deliver a set of tools that defines who does what at all stages of a project in a collaborative BIM environment, including how you can pass BIM model data along to non-BIM engineering staff to streamline all aspects of the process. The presentation will look at the effectiveness for BAM of the Autodesk Consulting methodology used throughout this challenging working practice for the MEP industry, and how BAM adopted the processes and worked with the Consulting Team to deliver an effective outcome. We will show tools for the data requirements, classifications, and scheduling requirements for all stages of an MEP project, and we’ll discuss how the process can extend into the fabrication level of a project.
- Discover the data requirements for all project members
- Discover best practices for MEP design, construction, and fabrications
- Discover the effective use of MEP technology to help all stages of a project
- Discover who does what when, and how that helps all within the supply chain
