Our client was a US-based consulting firm offering MEP design and drafting services. Based in Boston, the client is a mid-size architectural engineering consultant with branch offices across the US. Focusing on delivering high-quality Revit models for residential as well as commercial construction projects, our client has carved a name for them in the architectural space. Over the years, the client has been a reliable name and a number of IT giants in the US are among the client's vast clientele.
The client shortlisted a few architectural engineering companies specialized in Autodesk Revit and MEP modeling. After doing extensive discussions with the business development managers, the client selected eLogicTech as their project partner because of our two-decades of rich experience.
The client wanted eLogicTech MEP drafting team to develop a Revit model of the entire construction with Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) detailing. The client had several similar projects in their pipeline and wanted a professional MEP company to assist them in delivering those projects in time.
As the client had a variety of projects, our team had a number of unique challenges with every project:
The first challenge was to understand the construction standards and geography-specific regulations before developing the MEP design.
As the client had a strict delivery timeline in place, we also had to adhere to an internal schedule ahead of their actual delivery date. Along with this, we had to ensure the quality of the Revit model and MEP detailing.
Our experienced leadership team formed a group of four MEP experts for the projects. The outline of our Revit modeling process is as follows:
We received the concept designs and the markup drawings of the project from the client. We received the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and firefighting 2D drawings with particular instructions in the form of markups.
Our technical team had a few discussions with the client regarding the design standards and additional specification to follow in the projects.
Once the client approved the design brief with all the requirements, our engineering team revised the MEP design drawings which included the reflected ceiling plans (RCP).
The client approved the revised set of MEP drawings, and our drafters detailed the layouts with coordinates and other technical specifications. Based on this final version of the drawings, we created the Revit model of the entire construction site.
We developed the coordinated MEP model with all the marked-up specifications. Finally, we delivered the 3D model with the section drawings, and enlarged plans of the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and firefighting units.
At eLogicTech, we have always aimed at addressing the end objectives of the projects which revolve around the quality and accuracy of the deliverables. In this context, we helped the client with our experience laced suggestions to further improve the conceptual plans which was greatly appreciated by the client.
Apart from the obvious cost benefit, the client was greatly benefitted from our efforts toward turnaround time and quality of the MEP designs. Though these Revit modeling projects are not new to eLogicTech, we got the exposure to work on different construction standards which were one of our takeaways from the project.
If you have any similar MEP design and drafting project, let us know, and one of our business development managers will reach to have a detailed discussion.
