Plumbing Coordination Services

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

Provide Clash-free Plumbing Model Which is Coordinated to Mechanical, Electrical, Structural and Architectural Disciplines

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

We create custom plumbing Revit families which includes LOD 350 level of detail and data-rich parameters required for smooth plumbing coordination process. We specialize in organizing the plumbing drawings with various trades to avoid interference with structural, ceilings, mechanical, electrical, plumbing systems, partitions etc. We provide online or onsite plumbing coordination, above ceiling coordination and underground coordination services.

During the entire plumbing coordination process, we run multiple clash detection tests to reduce hard and soft clashes of plumbing systems such as pumps, water holding tanks, pool filtration equipment, sump, sewage pit, grease and sand traps, etc. thus leading to a clash-free coordinated construction model.

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

Plumbing Coordination Services

Plumbing Model Creation

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

Coordination Ownership

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

Clash Report Generation

We run multiple clash detection tests to identify the maximum plumbing design clashes (hard & soft) 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 plumbing system model and eventually deliver a fully integrated & coordinated construction model.

Trades of Plumbing Coordination

Trades of the Plumbing system are pumps, water holding tanks, pool filtration equipment, sump, sewage pit, grease and sand traps, etc. Our plumbing coordination services, make sure of all the plumbing system trades are clash-free and well-coordinated with the trades of mechanical, electrical, fire protection, architectural and structural systems. We work collaboratively with all the team of subcontractors (mechanical, electrical, fire protection, structural, etc.) and make sure of any plumbing design changes/modifications are implemented before delivering the final construction model.

Our Plumbing Coordination Process

01
Load MEP BIM Template

Load plumbing BIM template based on the client’s standards for plumbing system such as pumps, water holding tanks, pool filtration equipment, sump, sewage pit, grease and sand traps, etc.

02
Verify Architectural Model

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

03
Prepare Plumbing Model

Prepare the plumbing model which includes plumbing components such as pumps, water holding tanks, pool filtration equipment, sump, sewage pit, grease and sand traps, etc. for coordination within the central file.

04
Run the Clash-detection

In Navisworks plumbing model is coordinated with other disciplines and by clicking on “Run Test”, it shows the “Clash Report” occurred between the coordinated model.

05
Review and Resolve Clashes

After resolving plumbing 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.
