- About Project
- When you set to redesign a 100+ years old heritage hotel, you know it's going be a challenging task. This remodeling project demanded accurate mapping of the existing building, creating of demolition plan and drawings and then redesigning of the new construction. Creating accurate As-build drawings required significant coordination between the cross-design models. The structure is a 5-story building with around 150 rooms into the new design. MEP coordination becomes a critical and important aspect of this project while remodeling any old structure.
- Project Brief
- For the purpose of renovation of the existing design, at first we went ahead with the creating of As-build drawing of building. Existing design drawings and mapping of the building provided the insight to build them. Our BIM modeler recreated the error free demolition plan from the existing building plan. This 3D models contains customized Revit families/joinery items, crucial ducting system and HVAC installations. This project has gone through various design phases such as As-build model, demolition model, 3D modeling, MEP coordination and more.
Project skills & expertise
BIM implementation during this project demanded detailed knowledge of standard design specification in the process of redesigning from the 100+ years old building. MEP coordination of around 150-rooms infrastructure required multi-layered knowledge of HVAC design methodology, Plumbing, and Electrical modeling dimensioning norms specification for on-time project delivery.
Throughout the project, the modeling team provided critical input which saved our lots of time which might have gone in correcting the outcome of small overlooks.
