Case Study Highlights

The Client:

  • Industry: Sustainable Energy & Environmental solutions
  • Location: Europe

The Objective:

  • Efficient Manufacturing and installation of MEP equipments in an education building.

The Solution:

  • The team created different parametric Revit MEP families of plumbing fixtures, lighting, pipe accessories, electrical fixtures, Mechanical equipment etc to enable efficient manufacturing and installation of these MEP fixtures.

Technology/Software Used

A company offering sustainable energy and environmental solutions approached Australian Design and Drafting Services with the project for creating detailed Revit MEP families for manufacturing of MEP equipments. The client, a Europe based company, is one of the largest energy suppliers in the world and offers a unique  combination of expertise in Energy Efficiency and other sustainable solutions from design and installation of local and renewable energy solutions to integrated services.

ChallengesRevit Mep Families

  • From one single product dimension, an entire set of families had to be created successfully.
  • Understanding the project was very critical, and a team member had to be deputed at clients site for around 3 months.

Engineering Solution Revit Mep Families

Client provided inputs in the form of PDF files with manufacturing details of MEP equipment.

  • The designs were analyzed and a lot of changes were done, and around 250 families were created using Revit 2014.
  • Initially offshore support was extended however, as the project progressed, a team member had to be deputed at client’s site for around 3 months, to understand the project well. MEP Equipment 3
  • This person deputed executed the onsite task with close coordination with the client’s team and successfully completed the project.
  • At the end of this project that lasted for around 6 months, a detailed Revit MEP Parametric Family was delivered.

Benefits Revit Mep Families

  • The Revit family creation helped streamline the manufacturing process.
  • Management of content for the manufacturing of MEP equipments became easy’.
  • The MEP equipment and supporting devices were installed into the building shell more accurately.
