MEP BIM Case Study

CCU Science Building

MEP BIM for Educational Institute done by Advenser

Project Information

Building Type: Educational Institute

Location: Conway, SC, USA

Inputs: MEP Design Drawings

Deliverables:BIM Shop Drawings

Software: Revit-2015

Services: HVAC Duct, Pipe, Plumbing


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

The scope of work for Advenser in the project was the modeling and coordination of MEP services, including HVAC and plumbing, over the total area. The modeling was accomplished using Revit, whereas coordination and clash detection were 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 models.

Business Model Adopted

An 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.


A major challenge in the project was conflicting spatial data in the model that could not be resolved by the team, which was notified to the client through a written RFI highlighting the location of the conflict.


The issues were tracked using the Issue tracker. The coordinated set of MEP drawings was finally submitted to the client as final deliverables.
