Case Study: BIM for Fabrication Healthcare Facility

Case Study – BIM for Fabrication – Treasure Coast Behavioral Care Facility

The Treasure Coast Behavioral Care Facility is a newly constructed 80 bed facility in the city of Stuart on Florida’s beautiful Treasure Coast.

Stokes Mechanical Contractor, Inc. a reputable Contractor from Lake Worth, Florida, was awarded the full scope of the Mechanical and Plumbing trades on the project. To stay ahead and remain competitive, Stokes embraced BIM Coordination and BIM to Fabrication.

After great past experiences working together, Stokes called ENGworks to again be its BIM partner on the job. ENG provided Mechanical and Plumbing Modeling, BIM Coordination with the other trades, Shop/Installation Drawings, Spools and points for the Trimble Robotic Station. Stokes and ENG blended as one Team, and this was key to the success of the project.

The BIM Coordination process was performed through weekly virtual coordination meetings. The architect, structural engineer, the Stokes/ENGworks team and other Contractors were present. After areas where fully coordinated, the models were signed off. From those models, ENG created the spool drawings that were used by the Stokes team to produce the racks at their fab shop. The shop cut and pre-assembled each piece which reduced the material waste to almost zero. The racks were then transported to the construction site and installed in a fraction of the time. This greatly reduced labor cost compared to traditional methods.

ENG also added Trimble points to the BIM Models. This allowed Stokes Mechanical team on Site to layout hangers, sleeves and underground pipe very efficiently, using the Trimble Robotic Total Station.
