How Digital Measurement Technology Is Transforming MEP Pros Into Key BIM Players
Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology is not a cure-all for the construction industry. But a growing body of evidence shows that BIM offers project stakeholders a new order of construction precision and understanding, starting with unprecedented data and visualization collaboration across all trades.
With their central role in the life of any building project, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contractors are logical BIM advocates. This playbook explores how digital measurement technology is transforming MEP pros into key BIM players, including how:
- Their detailing, installation and fabrication tasks must coordinate with the consultant’s 3D model, making them especially reliant on BIM methodologies for successful project delivery.
- The robotic total station is crucial for coordinating design changes to the MEP office team in real time.
- BIM helps resolve clashes faster and more accurately, eliminating costly project delays and rework liability.
