Democratization of BIM technology – Case Study

Marcelo Lobato

Successful BIM Coordination for Small/Mid-Size Trade Contractor

For example, Hi-tech and educational owners, as shown on this video with Google and Stanford University, are requiring BIM on all of their projects. Sometimes, small to mid-size electrical, mechanical or plumbing contractors have a difficult time maintaining a full-time team in-house that can keep up with technology.

Through its partnership with ENGworks, Castro Plumbing, a Silicon Valley-based plumbing contractor, can offer its clients BIM capabilities as advanced or even more so than the larger players in the market.

Case Study: YouBIM & IMB Maximo Integration

Admin_engworks

Maine General Hospital

The Challenge

Integrate YouBIM into the Maximo environment (traditional static directory tree navigation)

The world leading solution from IBM, Maximo is one of the most widely deployed CMMS solutions that helps manage every aspect of facility management.

YouBIM is a SAAS (Software as a Service) cloud based solution that brings an integrated database and instant access to facility information through an easy-to-navigate 3D/BIM (Building Information Modeling) interface.

The story

When Robins & Morton construction (a top 10 ENR rated health care builder) and MaineGeneral Healthcareteamed up to build the largest IPD (Integrated Project Delivery) hospital in North America they knew they wanted to take BIM to the next level.

MaineGeneral relies on Maximo to manage all of their existing facilities and would also be deploying in on this the newest property.

The key elements of their requirements: ease of use, smooth 3D navigation, scalability, seamless integration between Maximo and the 3D models, disaster planning and integration into the Buildings Automation Systems(BAS).

YouBIM has been implemented using the 3D model geometry tied and configured to the deep feature tools of Maximo. Inside the YouBIM environment users get the full benefits of navigating their building in a virtual online landscape, while getting all the benefits of Maximo powerful database and support features. By using the YouBIM 3D model for their facility engineering, facility techs and janitorial staff get immediate locational information about a problem in their building, and also can access the power of Maximo support database.

Case Study: BIM for Fabrication Healthcare Facility

Admin_engworks

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.
