2D + 3D Building Services Coordination

3D VISUALISATION

As 3D visualisation is fast becoming the norm for developers and architects, its imperative that building services engineers and contractors are also able to demonstrate their expertise through 3D models of the services they are designing or installing. Using 3D services models to develop coordination drawings, ensures that the design can be visualised and developed to assist and improve the installation process. Using these models can also provide a great opportunity to visualise and consider future maintenance and plant replacement scenarios where space is limited.

3D BUILDING SERVICES COORDINATION

CAD SERVICES uses the latest 3D CAD software to deliver the highest quality 3D mechanical and electrical coordination and design verification, helping to improve the communication with clients and minimise possible on-site coordination issues. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved identification of coordination and possible design clashes
  • Enhanced services coordination
  • Better control of design information for installation phase

3D CLASH DETECTION

The use of cutting edge 3D clash detection software allows graphical highlighting of unresolved clashes that are not easily detected on 2D drawings. Minor problems can be easily eliminated before they become expensive site issues.

Experience has shown that undetected clashes are more common in 2D design drawings.

CAD SERVICES will often convert 2D design drawings and develop 2D architectural drawings into full 3D models to achieve higher visibility and potentially save considerable time spent on-site.

Key benefits of using CAD SERVICES 3D clash detection:

  • The ability to automatically generate clash detection reports
  • Visual verification that proposed designs are viable
  • Highly professional presentations available to potential clients at tender stage
