BIM Case study
200 Sydney St, Cambridge
200 Sydney St, located in Fort Washington Research Center is a 4 story laboratory & office building constructed in the year 2000 and, currently it is under renovation for new tenants. A major renovation work was planned in case of HVAC ducts.
Our scope of work
Our objective was to convert the 3D scanned point cloud data of hydronic and plumbing pipes as well as conduits in the Mechanical room into an intelligent BIM with LOD 300 in order to study the impact of new clashes and reworks required on other services as a result of changes in ducts. The final deliverable submitted by Advenser was an As-built model of mechanical room pipes and conduits complete with supports, hangers, and equipment for coordination purposes with redesigned ducts.
Business Model Adopted
The main challenge we faced was that the only available input was in the point cloud format, which was partially vague.
We took the challenge and put in extra effort to create the model in Revit Software with the assistance of Autodesk Navisworks and Autodesk Recap.
