BIM and Clash Detection Services
Does Your MEP BIM?
Sure, the big guys are doing it: architects, GCs, engineers. But are your MEP partners doing their part by using Building Information Modeling to serve you better?
A pioneer in our market, Monona Plumbing and Fire Protection has been enhancing the customer experience and adding value with BIM since 2005. We keep pace with project owners like general contractors and building owners, creating and sharing BIM data to streamline processes and serve our customers better. Our leadership in BIM has earned MPFP a reputation as a valuable project partner, proactively contributing to reduced lead times, cost savings and improved lifecycle management for building owners.
Leading the BIM Way
It only makes sense that genuine partner collaboration and comprehensive data sharing will positively affect the outcome of a building project. And although savvy project owners have been using Building Information Modeling for years, it’s rare to find local MEP contractors with the experience and knowledge it takes to add value to a project with BIM. Until now.
This proactive approach means we intercept potential problems by realizing the effects design decisions have on the entire project before construction ever begins. The construction process is positively impacted by fewer mistakes and change orders. Buildings are greener because they are produced with less waste. Building owners receive better data post project with tools to manage their facilities more efficiently. It’s a win-win for everyone, but not all MEPs are created equally.
MPFP is proactive in coordination efforts with other trades by means of the BIM process and clash detection. Current technologies in software and equipment are implemented in daily activities. Several examples are the use of:
Autodesk AutoCAD MEP and Revit MEP are three dimensional design tools used by designers and engineers to build models of complex building systems.
Autodesk Navisworks is a software tool that allows the input of multiple three dimensional models from all disciplines.
Trimble Total Station is a surveying tool used to locate a given point in the field.
If your building requires smarter, more efficient data, you need your project partners operating from the manual. MPFPs abilities in creating BIM data takes our relationship with project owners to new heights–from a service provider to a dynamic partner. The kind of partner with the power to bring even greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness to your project.
