Service Description

Pinnacle’s BIM engineering solutions create real value for AEC firms by saving construction cost, avoiding error at design stage and reducing rework. We innovate construction process through the implementation of advanced BIM technologies. Our engineers enhance construction workflow and quality of design and building through BIM. We offer customized solution to improve the workflow of the developer, contractor, consultant or facility management companies. Our comprehensive BIM engineering services  include constructability review, design validation, value engineering, design services and modularization. Contact us atbim@pinnaclecad.com to find your BIM flavor.

 

CONSTRUCTABILITY REVIEWS


We use BIM Models to generate automatic construction documents and provide conduit locations, fixture and tray layouts pertaining to architectural wall placement. Virtual project construction in BIM facilitates independent review of construction plan, identifying drawing discrepancies and constructability issues during preconstruction stage. Our BIM team produces RFI’s to identify constructability and operational issues related to missing document, conflicting data, maintenance access, input inconsistencies and operation clearance. Our BIM model gets updated as per RFI response, and maintains all RFI status in a log. This helps to resolve issues during the preconstruction stage, eliminates work stoppage and rework during construction and minimizes delays, errors and cost overrun, before the beginning of actual construction.
We perform constructability review and clash detection analysis through project review software like ‘Autodesk Design Review’ & ‘Autodesk Navisworks’. The software applications help us identify constructability and conflicts and fix them efficiently. Our 3D BIM model prepares efficient and accurate construction plans and equipment fabrication and thus helps us make effective evaluation, detection and reporting of interference clashes. Avail our constructability review service and get rid of the risk of human error in model inspection.

 

TYPES OF CONSTRUCTABILITY & OPERATIONAL ISSUES IDENTIFIED BY OUR TEAM:

  • Missing Information/Documents
  • Input Inconsistencies
  • Conflicting Data
  • Operation Clearance & Accessibility Issues
  • Maintenance Access

 

MEP DESIGN VALIDATION


Pinnacle offers Electrical, Mechanical & Plumbing Design Validation Services. We validate the BIM model provided by the consultants with the latest construction documents, bulletins & RFI responses. We also conduct Constructability Audit to resolve all issues for seamless construction and future maintenance. Our team minimizes construction risk by reviewing complex details and procedures before going on site.

VALUE ENGINEERING


Pinnacle brings Value Engineering for all successfully delivered projects through rigorous Design Detailing, Effective Quality Control (QC) Process and using technical expertise from Design, Construction Management & Field Installation. Our Creative In-House Brainstorming helps to re-design MEP layout and save time for contractor or design consultant, without changing orders. We make proper spacing and positioning of hangers for maximum load bearing and cost optimization.


BENEFITS OF PINNACLE’S VALUE ENGINEERING

  • Improves System Effectiveness & Constructability
  • Reduces Material & Labor Cost
  • Lowers Installation Time
  • Enhances Safer Construction
  • Ease in access during construction & post construction stages
  • Hanger Support Optimization
  • Sheet Metal Cost Optimization
  • Resolves Constructability Issues
  • Coordinates MEP Utilities
  • Reduces offset in trunk duct
  • Clean layout for MEP Model
  • Generates Higher ROI to client
  • Shaft Optimization
  • Saves time on RFIs
  • Avoids discrepancy with local codes in Plumbing Model

 


DESIGN SERVICES


Our engineering team builds intelligent BIM Models for designing complex building systems with greater efficiency. This gives a clear idea of the design intent to all stakeholders and helps them modify the design for achieving their desired outcomes, reducing the risk of costly changes later on. We simulate various design options and analyze them for developing more efficient and cost-effective solutions.


SOME OF OUR DESIGN ENGINEERING & OPTIMIZATION SOLUTIONS:

  • Revit based heat load calculation& HVAC layout generation
  • Sizing & Calculation of HVAC Ducts & Pipes
  • Illumination Calculation & Generation of Light & Power Layout
  • Calculation & Creation of Fire Fighting Layout as per NFPA standards & hazard classifications
  • Creation of sanitary & water supply layouts based on fixture unit values & pipe sizing
  • Validation of equipment capacity for all services
  • Creation of Technical Schedules & Auto-Updating the same as per design iterations
  • Pressure Loss Reports & Velocity Legend Creations
  • Other Analysis Report as per requirement

 


MODULARIZATION
Modularization has now become a vital aspect of construction management and building design. It is a kind of rack-service system in which we can install & fabricate all services, coordinating with each other. We create module in Autodesk Revit and Inventor for duct work, piping, plumbing and electrical equipment.


ADVANTAGES OF MODULARIZATION:

  • Easy Installation
  • Increased Productivity
  • Effective Coordination
  • Standardization of Process
  • Cost Reduction
  • Saving of Time & Labor Cost
  • Improvement of Construction Quality
  • Reduction of Material Wastage
  • Simplified Onsite Logistics
  • Less Risk of Theft
  • Protection from Weather Damage
  • Less Disruption to adjacent environment
