We are one of the few MEP Design Consultants in India to work on BIM platform as well. As your design partner, we use Revit MEP platform to create a 3D modelling environment, where our team can visualize complex systems and avoid conflicts with other building systems. Using BIM, we can simplify design decision-making and produce coordinated and accurate design documentation. This helps us to increase design performance, produce higher quality work and effective cost reduction.
Benefits of using Coordinated 3D BIM Model:
Field Conflict Resolution
Construction Cost Savings
Decreased Construction Time
Increased Onsite Productivity
BIM Modelling Services
Along with providing MEP design services on BIM platform, we are capable of providing Architectural & Structural modeling services to our client with the highest level of accuracy, tight deadlines and the greater level of flexibility.
Modeling in BIM is equivalent to constructing a building in digital space. The 4th and 5th dimensions can also be modeled which are project time and cost variables respectively.
By making competent Level of Detail(LOD) models i.e. LOD-300& LOD 350 models, it is possible to plan intricate details and avoid technical flaws and loopholes; also it helps in the correct determination of shapes, sizes, locations and orientations of elements within it.
BIM for FM (Facility Management)
The goal for facilities managers has always been to make buildings more energy-efficient, more productive and more comfortable for tenants and operators. BIM plays an important role in achieving this as it digitally manifests a structure to create a model that can be used to monitor and share information across the entire building lifecycle.
MAK MEP provides services for BIM to FM utilizing COBie (Construction Operation Building Information Exchange) Spreadsheet which itself is a is an international standard focused on capturing and recording important project data at the point of origin, including equipment lists, product data sheets, warranties, spare parts lists, and preventive maintenance schedules. This information is essential to support operations, maintenance, and asset management once the built asset is in service.
MAK MEP is the only global partner channel with YouBIM in India. YouBIM® is a Cloud-based Software for FM, which extends the value of BIM through to the Buildings Lifecycle by giving owners an integrated database and instant access to location and asset information through an easy-to-navigate web-based 2D/3D-BIM interface.
COBie is an industry specification for the collection and delivery of facility lifecycle information. It provides a methodology for design and construction teams to efficiently capture project data at the point of origin, including equipment lists, product data sheets, warranties, spare parts lists, and preventive maintenance schedules. This information is essential to support operations, maintenance, and asset management once the built asset is in service.
