This massive, 310,000 square-foot, multi-story residential building with an underground parking area is one of our more impressive involvements. The client contracted Mintropy to provide 3D model data for the entire building. The agreement included models for the electrical, plumbing, mechanical ducting and pipes, and fire protection systems for each floor. The project’s modeling details were as follows:
The project’s modeling details were as follows:
Our models covered necessary HVAC piping, and access and clearance zones for equipment. Additionally, all significant HVAC installations were also included.
Panels, transformers, and switchgear, along with access and clearance zones, were part of our electrical design scope. We also mapped out the location and spread of electrical conduits throughout each floor.
Our plumbing models dealt with all the relevant details, including supply and wastewater removal, as well as storm modeling, do deal with increased wastewater flow in the event of heavy rainfall.
We mapped the distribution of heads, mains, and branches throughout each floor to ensure that personnel always had access to fire control resources.
Our deliverables for this project included layout plants in both PDF and AutoCAD- compatible DWG formats, Navisworks exported files in NWC format with BIM coordination and an LOD 350 Revit 2020 model that included each of the previously mentioned services. Mintropy was proud to be a crucial part of the planning for this construction project.
