Project Summary

This project is a commercial building and community center with 8 floors and 1 basement + mezzanine. We had completed the project in 3 phases:

  1. Developing Architectural, Structural and MEP models
  2. Clash Detection and BIM Coordination
  3. MEP Installation Drawings

The client has provided us with CAD files and pdfs for developing the models. We developed the BIM models in Revit at LOD 350. Additionally, the MEP model was created in a manner so that it can be utilized by the client for onsite installations of MEP components. We created customized Revit families wherever necessary. The entire project was a 900-hour project and was delivered within 30 working days.

Project Completion Year
2016
Project Deliverables
  • Architectural, Structural and MEP 3D model
  • Clash Report & Navisworks model
  • Coordinated BIM model
  • MEP Installation Drawings
  • Accomplishing the 900-hour project in a span of 30 working days was achieved by assigning multiple resources to the project.
  • Inputs provided by the client were inadequate to develop the models. We had to make a lot of assumptions and raise several RFIs to complete the modeling. We also suggested certain design changes which were accepted by the client.
  • As the inputs were provided in phases, it resulted in some amount of rework. Tesla successfully completed the work without delaying the turnaround time.
