Case Study on BIM Support for a Piping and Heating Firm

O2I Helped an Award-winning Piping & Heating Giant with a Major BIM Project

The Client Requirement

The Client

Based out of South Dakota, USA, the client is one of the top players in the field of piping and heating solutions with over $100 million in contract awards. The client provides plumbing, gas, utility, and boiler installation services to commercial, institutional, industrial, and residential projects. In addition, the client provides consultation on modeling and quality control as well. With over 4 decades of industry experience and multi-location presence, the client is known for accurate bids and the ability to match strict timelines for large-sized commercial projects. For its superior service delivery, the client is the chosen Local Best for residential and commercial services for the last 9 years.

Requirement & Challenges

The client required 3D models in REVIT to design plumbing and heating pipelines for a 6-storeyed school with over 300,000sq. ft. area. Details including the pipe size and styles were shared in 2D format. The designs needed to be flawlessly planned to be safe and sustainable. The major challenge was that the project involved coordination with other service vendors for clash detection and remodeling. This implied rework for the team in case of clash with other services.

Our Solution

Our Solution

Like any other MEP project, plumbing and heating pipeline modeling projects need utmost care. So, thorough designing work was carried out by our experienced drafters to omit possible pipe placement mistakes. Being in the drafting service industry for both 2D as well as 3D modeling, Outsource2india delivered cost-effective and efficient service for the client. Superior quality design work was submitted to meet the requirements and the team worked in tangent to avoid clash detection. We followed the below shown process to assist the client -

  1. Received 2D AutoCAD drawings
  2. Downloaded the files through Primavera File Transfer/Dropbox
  3. Converted 2D files to AutoCAD/PDF
  4. Converted 2D models to REVIT BIM, Navis Works for 3D modeling
  5. Used Autodesk BIM 360 for coordination
  6. Managed Clash Detection with other service vendors for design issues relating to structural, architectural, heating and air conditioning, electrical, and fire-fighting etc.

Our team comprised three AutoCAD specialists, one team leader (TL), and one subject Matter Expert (SME) to ensure better project coordination. The project timeline was about eight weeks. We provided weekly reports and revision datasheets based on clash detection reports.

We used REVIT, Navis Works, Autodesk BIM 360, project management software 'Primevera' to deliver this project.
