Everything about BIM relies on data. Without it, critical tasks like specifying, cost estimating, calculating energy loads, and carrying out heating and cooling analyses would be impossible. This is the I in BIM, and we’ve got you covered.
BIM is an intelligent, digital model-based process that enables professionals involved in the design, engineering, construction and operation of built assets to design, engineer, construct and operate assets using powerful BIM software and recognised BIM processes.
We are specialized in the field of MEP (particularly HVAC) and our BIM service is an integral part of our service suite, which includes electrical engineering services, plumbing engineering services, sprinkler engineering services, fire protection engineering services, value engineering services, energy modeling services, building commissioning services, Scan to BIM (CAD to Revit modeling) services, construction administration services, utility filing services and engineering report services.
Scan to BIM is the process of using laser scanningto capture an accurate 3D scan of an existing asset.
At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers we provide a Scan to BIM service to provide an accurate digital representation of an existing asset for use at every MEP project stage. Converting relevant point cloud and laser scan data containing 3D object surface measurement we can create intelligent data-rich 3D models that can be used for BIM modeling purposes by designers and engineers.
The core benefit of our Scan to BIM service is the high degree of accuracy 3D models from laser scan information provides, accurate to the nearest millimetre. Accurate 3D models increase speed and reduce the likelihood of error.
Our scan to BIM services provides you with an accurate digital representation of the building site that can be used for every possible stage of the project from planning to design, assessment and evaluation. We convert the relevant point cloud and laser scan data to make intelligent data-rich 3D models that BIM modelers can use for design purposes. Our scan to BIM modeling service is particularly useful for managing facilities in AEC projects and for checking the feasibility of expansion or extensions.
At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers we use Revit to produce shop drawing and fabrication drawing information for structural components, including concrete and steel, in BIM models. These drawings can be extracted from BIM models using our Drawing Extraction Service.
3D BIM is a building information model that contains geometrical information (shapes and dimensions). MEP modeling is the process of 3D modeling MEP components.
Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers ’ experienced and qualified team of 3D BIM project designers, MEP modelers and technicians utilize the latest solutions and processes, to design/model, manage and deliver comprehensive graphical and non-graphical 3D BIM data and information for MEP BIM projects as required at any point during their lifecycle, from inception through to completion, commissioning and beyond.
Our 3D BIM and MEP BIM modeling service can include the modeling of complex buildings systems including energy-efficient mechanical heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
BIM models include layouts, diagrams, schedules, equipment, specification and construction details. Where they relate to MEP equipment, ductwork and piping, they are reviewed by a licensed professional mechanical engineer
We use software that enables our 3D BIM drafters create pre-construction models of buildings that incorporate MEP as well as structural and architectural elements. We use Autodesk Revit for shop and fabrication drawings to enable structural components (often steel and concrete) to be created. Data obtained from CAD to BIM conversion or Scan to BIM may also be used during this process.
The core benefit of our 3D BIM + MEP modeling service is that, in conjunction with our coordinated BIM service, it enables improves construction project control.
We can also undertake Energy Modeling for MEP 3D BIM projects, while using Equest, Trace, and Excel, to save around 20% on energy consumption for our clients. For more information on our BIM capability related to MEP energy modeling for 3D BIM projects, see: energy modeling service.
Issued For Construction drawings are detailed design drawing sets prepared by design professionals (architects, engineers) and are integral to contract documents. Shop Drawing and Fabrication Drawings are prepared by a general contractor and relevant sub-contractors and issued to design professionals for approval.
At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers we can extract both Issued For Construction and Shop/Fabrication Drawings, including basic plans and cross-sections to isometric installation drawings, to meet requirements.
A key benefit or our Issued For Construction and Drawing extraction service is that we specialize in MEP and HVAC drawings and can extract the relevant sections of these and 3D BIM models required.

At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers our experienced team of 5D BIM project cost planners and managers can utilize the latest solutions and processes to establish a cost simulation for your BIM project. As part of this Quantity Take-Off (QTO)s are possible to extract accurate data from a BIM model.
Once measurements and quantities are available, objects can be associated with rate items and instantaneous detailed project cost estimate created. Whenever variations or price changes are made, the QTO is automatically updated to ensure that cost estimates are always accurate.
The core benefit of our 5D BIM service is cost reduction, through cost accuracy, and the inherent time savings.
We can also value engineer projects, while using Revit, saving around 20% on construction costs for our clients through BIM project value analysis, or performance auditing. For more information on our BIM capability related to value management for BIM projects, see: value engineering service.
Clash detection is the resolution of structural or MEP conflicts, clashes, and clearances, through an automated, computerised process.
At Nearby EngineersNew York Engineers our BIM clash detection service helps eliminate human error. Spatial clash detection of components, material efficiencies, equipment lead-times, construction sequencing, and design compliance can all be identified and spatial clearances checked.
A key benefit of our clash detection service is that by facilitating the effective identification, inspection, and reporting of typical interference clashes in 3D models, we can resolve issues during design rather than during construction. This is particularly useful for asset management and for checking the feasibility of alterations or extensions.
The domain of BIM coordinators, BIM coordination involves the communication and coordination of architectural, structural and MEP BIM information and data, derived from input from these project stakeholders, contractors and owner at any given stage of a project.
