In this new era, where Building Information Modeling is mandated by the General Contractor, ENGworks helps Trade Contractors to effectively coordinate their systems and comply with the GC’s requirement. ENGworks helps Trade Contractors to generate their BIM Models with the appropriate software, along with support and representation at Trade Coordination meetings, and also producing Shop and Fabrication Drawings from the 3D models.
Specific BIM Services for Trade Contractors
As fellow practitioners, ENGworks has created the functionality of the browser with an engineer's interests in mind. The user will be able to locate content within the browser one of three ways: a manufacturer specified tree view, an alphabetically listed scroll bar of all pieces, and a search filter for quick results of specific requests. There are also preview renderings of all content, so the user is able to visually approve of the selection.
ENGworks MEP BIM Integration Suite gives users the tools to quickly implement and support BIM (with solutions for content management, manufacturer specific pipe types, implementation documentation), and quickly transition from CAD to BIM with Revit MEP project templates.
BIM Modeling represents the central focus of the effort in design and constructability analysis. ENGworks brings to the table full Bentley and Autodesk expertise on all disciplines: Architectural, Structural, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection. A customer centric approach is our key strength and has gone long way in developing long term business relationships with our clients.
As the BIM Models for all disciplines are accurately created, ENGworks performs Clash Detection and generates customized Building Conflict Reports (BCR). Our staff works together with the architects, engineers, general contractor and trades to detect and resolve the design conflicts among construction elements, before construction dollars are spent.
The ENGworks Coordination team is able to draw from years of experience in construction coordination and modeling, having led coordination and modeling efforts on dozens of multi-million square foot projects. With this acquired expertise ENGworks is able to offer assistance in all aspects of preconstruction and construction.
Preparing a building component or assembly for fabrication is a time consuming process that depends on numerous complex factors. BIM facilitates a variety of related design-construction activities, including digital fabrication and Shop drawings of building components. BIM enables digital design-to-fabrication workflows for all building disciplines.
Technology has greatly eased work from different locations. We believe though, that for certain endeavors, a personal presence is required in order to increase communication, thereby maximizing efficiency. ENGworks can instruct general contractors and other team leaders in the effective oversight of Coordination meetings.
Complex site logistics and installation phasing are some of many potential applications for visualization. Using graphic representations to understand time-based (4D) visualization adds the time factor of the construction schedule to the 3D model. We can directly link each activity of a Gantt chart (generated in project management software such as Primavera or Microsoft Project) to the BIM.
Accurate quantification of building components is a constant necessity during design and construction phases of any project. ENGworks assists during the procurement process by providing Quantity Take-Offs generated from the BIM. When combined with optional studies or phasing, accurate comparative data can be a powerful tool in maintaining and optimizing efficiencies. ENGworks will work with its clients to maximize the value and e of a model toward these tasks.
