NYC School – 3D BIM Model, Clash Detection, and Coordination

Brief Overview

The NYC School project involved the development and construction of a school facility managed by the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA). The client, Virtual Building Studio, was tasked with creating a detailed LOD300 Model of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Fighting (MEPF) services for the school. Additionally, they were responsible for performing clash detection and coordination to validate the design.

Challenges/Requirements

LOD300 MEPF Modeling

The project required the creation of a detailed 3D BIM model for Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Fighting services at a Level of Development (LOD) 300, ensuring accurate representation and information for construction purposes.

Clash Detection and Coordination

The client needed to identify and resolve clashes and conflicts within the design to prevent construction issues, optimize spatial coordination, and enhance overall project efficiency.

Deliverables

Virtual Building Studio developed a comprehensive 3D BIM model of the MEPF services, adhering to the LOD300 standard. This model provided detailed information on the systems' spatial requirements, connections, and specifications, facilitating accurate construction planning and execution.

The team at Virtual Building Studio conducted clash detection analysis using the LOD300 model. They identified clashes and coordination issues among different building elements, such as HVAC ducts, electrical conduits, and plumbing pipes. Detailed clash reports were generated, enabling the design team to make necessary adjustments and resolve conflicts.

Outcomes / Benefits

Enhanced Design Validation

Early identification and resolution of design clashes minimized on-site modifications and improved construction efficiency.

Improved Construction Efficiency

Detailed LOD300 MEPF model facilitated efficient installation and reduced conflicts, resulting in a streamlined construction process.

Cost Savings

Addressing clashes upfront prevented costly changes during construction, leading to significant cost savings.
