WASHINGTON DC, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, USA, Jan. 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the AEC industry, Building Information Modeling is growing in popularity. Whether it’s a home addition, remodel, renovation or new construction, BIM is used for an accurate building plan during the pre-construction phase. Construction projects, such as shopping malls, retail stores, as well as residential and commercial construction represent the best part of the BIM market. A pre-development (plan) and the functional stages of the structure all require BIM. According to Markets and Markets, it is predicted that by 2026, North America will retain the best part of the BIM market, including territories in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This part of the globe is rapidly adopting BIM for construction planning and development.

Sukh Singh, Vice President of Tejjy Inc., a BIM service provider in the United States, said, “Our construction professionals use BIM modeling for electrical contractors to boost project efficiency and reduce costs. errors during the planning and development phases of the construction.”

Benefits of BIM for electricians:

4. Detection and coordination of conflicts

5. Value Engineering

6. Electrical drawings via BIM

7. quantity survey/bill of materials

8. Creating the Revit Family

1. Design Development and Design Validation:

load analysis

Short circuit analysis

· Schedules

Dimensioning

· Pressure drop

Illumination calculation

Energy analysis

· Plan of control

· Fire alarm provision

Risers and single diagram

2. Constructability audit:

The BIM constructability review guarantees:

Adequate space for installation, operation and maintenance

Compliance with building codes for cable heights

Distance between high voltage services and additional low voltage services

Exact position of electrical elements with dimensions

3. Electrical BIM modeling:

3D modeling of lighting fixtures, MCCs, boards, transformers, DBs, panels, excluding approved submissions

· Modeling of electrical containment, trunk, bus duct, cable trays, etc.

Render the model with lights

Presentation of the electrical BIM model in Navisworks

4. Detection and coordination of conflicts:

Conflict detection and coordination during pre-construction, resulting in substantial cost savings

A coordinated BIM model is formed, reducing conflicts between architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical and fire protection services through:

ü Rerouting utilities

ü Changing elevations

ü Resizing

5. Value Engineering

Value design via BIM minimizes project cost, saves material usage and improves functional efficiency through:

ü Overhaul of electrical services

ü Recommend alternative routes to perform BIM conflict detection

ü Relocate electrical panel, switchgears and lighting fixtures to reduce material usage

6. Electrical drawings via BIM:

Power and lighting layout

· Shop drawings

Sleeve designs

duct reel

· Prefabrication plans

Data cable

· Fire alarm drawings

7. Statement of quantities/Name of materials:

Quantity statements generated from the electrical BIM model with automatic update of changes made to the existing model

All electrical installations make it easy for contractors to assess project costs and arrange material acquisition

Electric quantity sampling instances:

ü Wall installation

ü Track lighting

ü Fluorescent device

ü Projector

8. Creation of the Revit family:

Revit electrical families include accurate calculations and technical product details

· Incorporates explicit design information essential to electrical services

Revit parametric families contain real-world product information for analysis and calculation simulations
