Project Overview

Client Profile
Sustainable Energy and Environmental Solutions Provider
Institutional Construction
Set of PDF files and manufacturing details
Parametric Revit Families of MEP components

  • From one single product dimension, an entire set of families had to be created successfully.
  • PDF files shared by the client had missing information which needed interpolation and approvals from client.
  • Frequent approvals and necessary feedback hindered meeting the project timelines.

Our Solutions and Approach

Delivered parametric Revit families of MEP components for MEP equipment.

The sustainable energy solutions provider approached Hitech to create parametric BIM objects for manufacturing and installation easy across the educational campus. Initial PDF files were shared with our Revit drafters to prepare 3D model for Revit libraries.

  • Project team studied the PDF files for manufacturing details of MEP equipment.
  • Design changes were done to fill in the gaps for missing information and Revit Families for pumps, compressors, storage tanks, piping etc. were created.
  • One of the project engineers visited the site before imitating offshore modeling to churn out better modeling results.
  • Entire project lasted for six months and 250 Revit Families were generated which were shipped to the client.

The client was able to streamline the manufacturing process with Revit families so created and as-built models were quickly developed by simply replicating these families. This saved a lot of cost and time for the client and installations took place more accurately.

Business Impact

A final model with QC at multiple levels was shared with the client to avail an all in one solution for 2D, 3D and Detail, Plumbing fixture detail and insulation detail. With the help of the 3D coordinated model, the client could avail detailed drainage systems for underground as well as upper floor drainage systems and take informed decisions.
