After a handover of construction projects, facility owners are faced with an insurmountable task of operating, maintaining and managing the facility. Unless modern technologies of visualizing the components in a virtual space, managing the facilities may be bound to problems.
HVAC systems, fire protection systems, alarms, and other building systems need periodical maintenance. In a large complex, it can be increasingly challenging to keep up with the maintenance schedules. CAD designs, for example, do not link important information to the design components. You may not know the critical data such as manufacture date of your water geyser.
BIM enables owners to operate, manage and maintain their facilities efficiently. 6D BIM helps with facility management and operations. This minimizes the costs of operations and maintenance. Let our MEP engineers install building systems using BIM to help you manage and maintain them thereafter.
MEP building systems can be costly. With 5D BIM, we can also estimate costs of installing, maintaining and repairing these systems. Combine that with quantity take-offs that our engineers can conduct to give an accurate estimation of costs for your building systems. Building owners will, therefore, get a better understanding of how much to spend in installing and maintaining building systems.
When building owners are immersed in the digital model of their building from the design to the construction phase, they can see in real time what changes are made and how are MEP building systems installed. Do not worry if BIM technology seems overwhelming to you because New York Engineers technicians can demystify the software application for you. Because of your engagement in the design and construction process through the digital model in the common data environment, you can agree to any changes thus avoiding costly change orders.
BIM MEP can save building owners lots of money especially in existing buildings. Many buildings consume lots of power and contribute to carbon production. New York Engineers can use BIM to assess the energy consumption of existing building systems and then optimize them. When helping optimize the building in line with relevant standards, we use this cutting-edge technology.
