Modeling & Detailing

Vendor & Mechanical Equipment

Mechanical Equipment and Vendor Systems a Coordinated Approach

Vendor equipment modeling, when precisely controlled, offers powerful development, procurement and asset management opportunities. At DBM Vircon, we have a deep understanding and experience managing and developing projects where vendor supplied items can number in the tens of thousands.

DBM Vircon’s precise and data rich 3D models and collaborative processes allow for the seamless integration of vendor and mechanical equipment into complex building system models. Our 3D models facilitate all aspects of vendor and mechanical equipment design co-ordination and procurement, to ensure constructibility and maintainability. These models can be used for executing both greenfield and brownfield projects, retrofitting designs and visualizing existing facilities with clarity and certainty.

Vendor & Mechanical Equipment Modeling & Detailing – Design, Integration and Streamlined Procurement

MAINTENANCE WORK ORDER & INSTALLATION ANIMATIONS

The integration of data from all design disciplines and the streamlining of team communication resolves problems relating to inadequate documentation and reduces clashes and errors.

ACCURATE METADATA RICH COMPONENTS

Comprehensive 3D models allow for planning and coordination of field tasks to occur remotely, reducing the time spent on-site. It also facilitates virtual walk-throughs for problem resolution.

MULTI-DISCIPLINE INTEGRATION

With the integration of vendor and mechanical equipment into your comprehensive 3D models, labour-intensive tasks are reduced, productivity increased and time-consuming errors avoided.

VERSATILE VISUAL REPORTING & TRACKING SOLUTIONS

Our models help to eradicate duplication, rework, delays and clashes, enabling scheduling and budgetary certainty and improvement. Labour and materials expenditure are reduced.

FULL DIGITAL ENGINEERING (BIM) CAPABILITY

Our accurate and precise models incorporate advanced technology and data to take into account all variables and factors to ensure constructability of and around vendor and mechanical equipment.

STREAMLINE THE PROCUREMENT TO INSTALLATION PROCESS

3D models enable comprehension of a cohesive project and the connectivity of systems. This allows designs to be easily communicated, verified and approved by all stakeholders as well as clients.

Vendor & Mechanical Equipment Modeling & Detailing – Delivery

DBM Vircon’s Approach

Working closely and collaboratively with our clients, we offer a full range of services suited to providing not only highly accurate geometric vendor and mechanical equipment models, but the management and control of metadata rich components, assemblies and sub-assemblies for all phases of the project life cycle, from procurement through to ongoing asset management.

When the associated metadata is considered, the management of data fields can count in the millions. Trusted automated workflows, data management and collaborative systems are essential in the management of such large dynamic and variable data sets with their associated component geometries.

Our vendor design and modeling team use a combination of parametric software solutions such as Revit, Advance Steel, Tekla and others to accurately model vendor and mechanical equipment for incorporating into working models for interfacing with other disciplines across all industries and sectors.
