How TP Mechanical Makes BIM Work for You

Sometimes our focus is so trained on the results that it can be eye-opening to look at the important steps required to get there. And one of those essential building blocks for TP Mechanical is BIM – or Building Information Modeling.

With BIM, our design/build teams use one comprehensive system of digital drawings that all members can access, instead of working on separate drawings. BIM combines 3-D modeling and information management for a more collaborative, streamlined effort that reduces the likelihood of mistakes.

TP Mechanical’s Design/Build Services

TP Mechanical’s expert design/build teams apply BIM methodology, along with pre-fabrication techniques and LEED principles, to create custom designs that meet your specific project needs. We collaborate with owners, architects and construction managers to design mechanical systems that accomplish multiple construction objectives. We provide engineering services for:

  • System Lifecycle Cost Analysis
  • HVAC Design Heat Load Calculations
  • HVAC System Design
  • Plumbing System Design and Layout
  • Fire Sprinkler Design and Layout
  • Duct and Piping Sizing and Layout
  • Equipment Selection
  • Energy Usage Analysis
  • Industrial Ventilation
  • Control Sequence Operations
  • Specifications

The BIM Bottom Line

By using BIM, TP Mechanical offers you the advantage of superior design capabilities along with true bottom-line benefits such as increased savings, faster results, improved accuracy and reduced risk of errors or discrepancies.

Trade Conflict Avoidance Using BIM

BIM01It’s not hard to find information in the construction industry touting the benefits of Building Information Modeling or BIM. It’s become a critical, model-based process of planning, designing, constructing, and managing buildings.

This tool has revolutionized the way that builders construct and coordinate trades to work on a project. It enhances organization and helps see a project through to completion with minimal conflicts.

The Purpose                                                       

The general purpose of BIM is to reduce the need for regathering and reforming information. Everyone on the project knows where they fit into the overall completion of the project and should lead to very little confusion.

TP Mechanical uses BIM to create a simpler process as we collaborate on a variety of projects and reducing costs at every stage. This software brings together all of the elements in the planning stage of the design and is evolving rapidly.

Advantages

  • Cost-effective
  • Minimal project risk
  • Pre-fabrication and pre-assembly of parts
  • Reduce waste
  • Reducing long term building operation costs

 

Designs that deliver

Our design teams collaborate with owners, architects and construction managers to design mechanical systems that help meet objectives. We handle design, fabrication, and pre-fabrication in-house.
