MEP BI Modeling

If the structural framing resembles the “backbone” of a construction, that is absolutely necessary to support it, then the MEP networks and systems are the equivalent to the hart, the lung, the arteries, the veins and the nerves, that produce and distribute vital “substances” throughout the “body” of the building, keeping it “alive” and operable. When it comes to coordination of disciplines and trades, MEP network and systems are the most demanding, time consuming and prone to human error. This is the main reason why, incorporating MEP elements in a BI Model  

is an activity which arguably generates the most valuable outcomes, acting as a critical precaution to verify that when the design reaches the construction site, everything will “fit”, and no time consuming and budget inflating surprises will come up. EB/A BIM Team is absolutely capable of modeling MEP Systems of any kind, however complicated they are, and they have proved it in highly demanding projects, such as the Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center, which is the first project in Greece where 

BI Modeling of MEPelements has been executed in such an impressive scale and detailing. EB/A PROJECT team’s familiarity with international classification systems such as UniFormat, OmniClass and UniClass, as well as equipment data information exchange protocols like COBie, is a guaranty of valuable contribution of the MEP BI Model, in the overall process of a project, from the Design to the Handover and the Operation-Maintenance phase.
