HVAC/ Mechanical Coordination Services

We provide clash-free coordinated 3D BIM models by resolving clashes of mechanical system with the electrical, plumbing, architectural and structural systems – leading to minimal mechanical design changes/modifications.

Provide Clash-free Mechanical Model which is coordinated to Electrical, Plumbing, Structural and Architectural Disciplines

We strongly believe in “Prevention is better than cure”, and that’s the guiding principle we follow in our Mechanical Coordination Services or HVAC Coordination Services during key stages of building design – schematic design, design documents, and construction documents.

During the entire mechanical/HVAC coordination process, we run multiple clash detection tests to reduce hard and soft clashes of HVAC Equipment and distribution such as Cooling tower, AHU, Ducting, Exhaust Fan, Diffusers, Heaters, AC Units, etc. thus leading to a clash-free mechanical model.

We believe in “Collaborating Together Coordinating Better” so we work closely with the mechanical subcontractors and the other teams of subcontractors (electrical, plumbing, fire system), general contractors, architects, structural engineers, etc. Our consultative approach during the entire mechanical/HVAC coordination process helps mechanical subcontractors or mechanical designers to take correct decisions for the mechanical design changes or modifications.

Mechanical BIM Coordination &
Clash Detection Services

Mechanical Model Creation

We create a mechanical system model (LOD 100 to 500) which are coordinated and integrated with the electrical, plumbing and the base model (architectural & structural).

Coordination Ownership

We accompany mechanical designers for the on-site gatekeeper meetings/visits or be a part of coordination meetings, facilitating the entire mechanical design from schematic design to construction stage.

Clash Report Generation

We run multiple clash detection test to identify the maximum mechanical design clashes with the system models and the base models to generate a clash report.

Design Modification

We implement the necessary design changes discussed during the coordination meetings into the mechanical system model and eventually deliver fully integrated & coordinated construction model.

Trades of Mechanical Coordination

HVAC Equipment and distribution such as Cooling tower, AHU, Ducting, Exhaust Fan, Diffusers, Heaters, AC Units, etc. Our mechanical BIM coordination services, make sure of all the mechanical system trades are clash-free and well-coordinated with the trades of electrical, plumbing, fire protection, architectural and structural systems. We work collaboratively with all the team of subcontractors (electrical, plumbing, fire protection, structural etc.) and make sure of any design changes/modifications are implemented before delivering the final construction model.

Our Mechanical Coordination Process

01
Load Mechanical BIM Template

Load mechanical BIM template based on the client’s standards for each of the listed HVAC Equipment such as Cooling tower, AHU, Ducting, Exhaust Fan, Diffusers, Heaters, AC Units, etc.

02
Verify Architectural Model

Verify/Check the coordinate of the architectural model with mechanical model by using the “Origin to Origin” positioning approach before linking them.

03
Prepare Mechanical Model

Prepare the mechanical model which includes Cooling tower, AHU, Ducting, Exhaust Fan, Diffusers, Heaters, AC Units, etc. for coordination within the central file.

04
Run the Clash-detection

In Navisworks mechanical model is coordinated with anyone discipline and by clicking on “Run Test”, it shows the “Clash Report” occurred between the coordinated model.

05
Review and Resolve Clashes

After resolving mechanical clashes, we reload the cache in the Navisworks and make sure resolved clashes are in yellow, and check if any new clashes which will show up in red.
