Minimize Construction Project Risk Through MEP Coordination Models

Posted by ENGVT on Jan 30, 2020 12:09:04 PM

Benefits of Fabrication Grade MEP Coordination Models

The construction industry is under constant pressure to overcome schedule, budget, labor and productivity risk factors. This enduring struggle has given rise to many methods and technologies geared toward eliminating inefficient and/or conflict-prone processes. 

Fabrication grade MEP coordination models represent an evolution to that end. Such models provide detailed layout and spatial information related to the mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), process piping and data systems within an architectural design of a facility. Their primary purpose is to illustrate and identify any potential conflicts between the various equipment layouts and architectural elements that must be squeezed into a project envelope.

How MEP Engineering Adds Value to Your Project

Posted by ENGVT on Aug 22, 2019 11:03:00 AM

MEP Engineering Provides Immediate and Long Term Benefits

Through the use of BIM technology, MEP Engineers can collaborate with building owners and designers to develop working visualizations of a building’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems. This opens the door to system awareness and system improvements that can have both immediate and long term benefits.

Modular MEP Systems and Lean Construction

Posted by ENGVT on Apr 11, 2019 2:25:49 PM

From BIM to Modular MEP to Lean Construction 

Modularization is taking root in many fields. Mostly in manufacturing industries but also in applications as far flung as software development and the Internet of Things (IoT). In the fields of engineering and construction, modular design and modular processes are introducing new levels of project quality, productivity, efficiency and cost compared to traditional methods.

Collaboration in Revit MEP/Architecture

Posted by ENGVT on Aug 8, 2018 11:01:42 AM

Revit MEP / Architecture Solves Collaboration Issues

As buildings become more advanced to meet energy and water use goals, such as those outlined in the LEED and Architecture 2030 Challenge platforms, the design of MEP systems must be able to react to changes in the overall building design throughout the design process. This will ensure that the MEP systems are properly sized and take into account the inevitable load variations throughout the building.

Understanding the importance of real-time coordination between MEP engineers, architects and construction managers means taking advantage of software tools that exist on the market today. Luckily Revit has been designed with collaboration in mind, by including powerful and efficient tools that make communication between disciplines understandable and easy.

PSC vs ECM Motors In Commercial HVAC Systems

Posted by ENGVT on May 16, 2018 11:08:00 AM

ECM Motors = Energy savings and added functionality

ECM motors are providing a variety of benefits to commercial HVAC systems over traditional PSC motors. These motors are used in pumps, fans, and increasingly in compressors and other motor applications. An ECM pump or fan motor is electrically commutated, which means it uses a DC circuit controlled by an internal microprocessor to vary the speed and torque of the motor to match changing system requirements. 

PSC motors, or permanent split capacitor, use non-polarized capacitors and brushes to deliver electricity to the rotating parts. These brushes are known to wear out over time. ECM motors do not use brushes, thereby reducing maintenance and extending service life.
