Benefits of BIM for MEP

Building Information Modelling (BIM) helps MEP firms improve accuracy, reduce and resolve clashes and optimise building systems design. MEP BIM software helps project teams improve collaboration, share data and speed project delivery from design to construction.

How is BIM used for MEP?

BIM is an intelligent, 3D model-based process that helps MEP professionals design, detail and document building systems more efficiently. Working in a BIM process gives project teams more insight into designs and constructability, reducing risk and improving outcomes.
