MEP Engineering for mega Mixed-use Development in UAE.

Back to Case Studies

Background:

The project was a marquee & prestigious Greenfield construction of a 41-storey Mixed-use building. The asset consisted of podium space, commercial and active areas interconnected with the residential tower. Vegetation on the podium landscape created shaded areas to encourage all-day use of the space.

RAMTeCH was appointed by the lead MEP contractor to provide complete Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire services (LOD- 0 to LOD – 500). This was inclusive of extraction of shop drawings and As-Built drawings to facilitate site construction.

Our Approach:

  • In the role of MEP BIM Consultant, RAMTeCH was responsible for setting up a collaborative working relationship among all project partners including various design disciplines, contractors, specialists, suppliers and customer, using a single shared Revit 3D model
  • The first stage involved validating the consultant provided design and assessing the ease of fabrication at site.
  • Multi-disciplinary teams were created to build and validate the separate components of the MEP model.
  • Using the individual models created, a single unified 3D model was generated which enabled the identification and resolution of interface issues prior to construction.
  • Clash detection between all the trades / services and architectural/Structural layouts were identified and solutions suggested to the client and site team before installing the services.
  • RAMTeCH provided detailed working drawings for the project, detailing every part of the building. A detailed 3D model with sectional details of the required areas were prepared, tagged and included in the final produced working drawings sheet. The details were provided in the form of plans, sections, elevations and 3D models with detailed annotation and information.

Client Benefits:

A swift and accurate comparison between various design options was possible with 3D models developed by RAMTeCH. Such comparisons helped in developing more efficient, sustainable and cost effective solutions for the project.

Using the 3D models, the client was able to review the project in a virtual environment before commencement of construction. These virtual models rehearsed complex procedures, optimized temporary works and procurement/site teams planned procurement of materials, manpower and equipment.

As a result, chances of redesign was eliminated and saved considerable time and costs for the project.
