Business model adopted
Hourly based billing business model was used for CCU Science Building involving Building Information Modeling services. The project execution spanned over a period of over 3 months.
Our scope of services
This project involved the addition of a 71,150 sq. ft. second annex to Coastal Carolina’s current Science Building which was constructed in 1980. The proposed annex consists of an estimated 40 faculty offices, 8 teaching labs, 460 seat classrooms, 245 seat classrooms, and one Ecology teaching lab and 6 small labs for Ecology research.
Our scope of work in the project was modeling and coordination of MEP services including HVAC and plumbing over the total area. Modeling of the services was accomplished using Revit whereas coordination and clash detection was carried out using Navisworks Manage as well as Revit. Inputs received for the project included design drawings in CAD and PDF. 3D models for all MEP elements were developed from the design drawings for coordination which was then coordinated with the Architectural and structural 3D model. Conflicting spatial data in the model that could not be resolved by the team was notified to the client through written RFI highlighting the location of the conflict. The Issues were tracked using the Issue tracker. The coordinated set of MEP drawings were finally submitted to the client as final deliverables.
