MEP BIM Integration Suite

ENGworks' MEP BIM Integration Suite give users the tools to quickly implement and support BIM (with solutions for content management, manufacturer specific pipe types, implementation documentation), and smoothly transition from CAD to BIM with Revit® MEP project templates.

ENGworks MEP BIM Integration Suite helps users:

• Smoothly transition from CAD to BIM

• Leverage over forty thousand Revit Family Types

• Produce accurate piping models to create better designs

• Accelerate the next project with MEP Design Standards, COBie, and GSA Spatial Templates


BIMXchange

The BIMXchange is an intelligent, lightweight, and intuitive web application that provides access to over 40,000 Revit Family Types from more than 150 building product manufacturers. BIMXchange is currently utilized by several thousand Revit users. This cloud-based tool offers right-sized, data-rich Revit models of building products. These models are particularly important to the MEP designer, with sufficient crossover to be functionally significant for architectural users as well. BIMXchange is available on a per-seat basis via a yearly subscription.


Revit Piping Productivity Package

ENGworks

The initial goal in creating the Revit Piping Productivity Package was to build a valid Revit piping/plumbing model suitable for coordination purposes, then print recognizable construction documents. The package has grown to include an increasing list of pipe types and manufacturers, including more than six hundred fittings. This offering includes standards for ASTM, ANSI, and AWWA pipe materials, sizes, schedules, and connection types. The fittings are all manufacturer specific and restrictive to the sizes and angles available in the manufacturer's catalog. We have a package available for the 2011, 2012, and 2013 releases of Revit MEP.

The Pipe and Fittings Package installation includes templates, families, and lookup tables. Fittings can only be placed at angles that correlate to the product specifications. The advantage of the package is to convey design intent in 2D space while maintaining model integrity. The pipe sizes available include larger diameter types needed for many designs.


Revit MEP Quickstart

ENGworks has created six distinct project templates suited to any firm or user who needs to get a project started quickly in either 2011, 2012, and 2013 versions of Revit MEP. They are specific to mechanical, electrical and plumbing disciplines, providing a structured environment for projects while maintaining flexibility for individual firms. The templates are comprehensive; they include project tracking information, schedules, temporary sheets, and a preset of ten floors with associated Scope Boxes and overall plans. ENGworks-bim_for_fabrication

There are three principal template structures: MEP Design Standard, COBie, and GSA Spatial. They are organized identically, with the difference being the information and schedules specific to the COBie and GSA initiatives and standards. The inclusions of these specialty templates are based on evolving processes within the buildingSMART alliance and GSA. Template users will be provided updates as the information becomes available.


Revit Implementation Guide

With potentially thousands of pages of information relating to a specific project, often that data becomes lost or jumbled. The BIM Execution Plan that ENGworks has put together aids in untangling the web of information.

This plan is divided into three components: Organizational Decisions, Project Tracking, and General References. The Organizational section sets criteria and methods for defining and establishing roles, responsibilities, and goals in a project. The Tracking section employs interactive tracking tools for project members to stay current on everything, from model/Workset ownership to coordination model nomenclature. The final section, References, is a library of useful information (such as BIM best practices, additional resources, and information sources) and includes a section detailing some common elements that a sub-contractor could request.

Also included are a collection of process documents meant to provide "just-in-time" information during the span of a project. For example, there is an aid for guiding a project manager through the cleanup and optimization of an architectural or structural model (as well as preparation for the Revit MEP design and modeling processes) and detailed documents explaining worksharing and shared coordinates. All internet users already have access to this information, yet having it organized, accessible, and standardized can prove beneficial for firms starting out.
