Autodesk Revit MEP

Revit MEP

Today’s building projects are becoming increasingly complex and the requirements from customers, the state and municipalities are becoming increasingly rich in content. This applies to all disciplines in the building industry, including those working in the MEP world.
 
MEP is an English abbreviation for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing. In Sweden, we usually talk about installation as a collective name for this, which includes electricity, ventilation, water and sanitation (Pipes). In other words, it is about the part of a building that is not always visible or taken into account, but which is expected to function as it should.
 
In today’s building projects, the documentation often consists of PDF drawings, DWG files and in larger projects also IFC files. In the future, these documents will most likely be supplemented with the file format RVT (Revit Project File), which is Revit’s own project files.

You can do this with Revit within MEP

Structured analyzes
With Revit, you can perform simulations and interference detection early in the design process. You can also use conceptual energy analysis data for engineering-driven calculations.
 
Reliable documentation
Design, model and document building systems in a context with a complete BIM model, including architectural and building components.
 
Integrated design
Streamline the building design process with Revit. Coordinate and communicate the idea behind the construction in a single model before any construction work begins.
 
Coordinated manufacturing and installation
In Revit, you can create a model for MEP manufacturing with tools that automate the manufacturing model layout. Prepare a model for detailed coordination of manufacturing and installation.

 

Benefits of using Autodesk Revit in MEP

Revit is a multidisciplinary BIM tool where we work with ventilation, plumbing for HVAC, electricity and sprinkler design. Working with Revit as part of Autodesk Construction Cloud adds many benefits as multiple people can work in the same model. This is something we at Cadcraft have noticed is especially appreciated among our MEP customers.
 
Another advantage is that we largely avoid working with different DWG files for different floors, sections or elevations. The information is in the model and we do not have to worry about whether the views are correct from one view to another – all information is already in the model.
 
At Cadcraft, we notice an increased interest among our MEP customers to move to BIM projecting in Revit. In order to remain at the forefront also in the future, we believe that it is important to make this journey already today, as the requirements are becoming increasingly tough and Revit is becoming an increasingly obvious solution to meet these requirements.
