Mechanical Room Modelling

Chillers, AHUs, heat exchangers, pressure vessels, control valves, standpipes, swing-bolt closure, sanitary, boilers, and ducts are all part of complex mechanical rooms. The whole system layout and drawings are analyzed as part of our process to produce a fully-equipped model that takes into account all potential conflicts, access points, future repairs, etc. We offer mechanical modelling services to fabricators, manufacturers, and MEP/HVAC consultants. For mechanical modelling, we employ the software Revit MEP. Our trustworthy services help contractors place profitable bids and provide consumers with high-quality service.

Mechanical room modeling is the process of creating a digital representation of a mechanical room and its systems using computer-aided design (CAD) software. This model is used to simulate the performance of the mechanical systems and to identify potential issues before construction begins. The process of mechanical room modeling typically begins with the creation of a floor plan, which shows the layout of the room and the location of the mechanical equipment. The designer then adds the necessary equipment, such as boilers, chillers, pumps, and ductwork, to the model. These elements are typically represented as 3D objects that can be rotated and viewed from any angle. The designer also needs to ensure that the mechanical room layout is in compliance with the local building codes, fire codes, and accessibility codes.

Once the mechanical equipment is in place, the designer can begin to add the necessary piping and ductwork to connect the equipment. This includes adding the necessary valves, fittings, and other components to the model. The designer can also add electrical components, such as lighting and power outlets, to the model. This step is crucial as it ensures that the mechanical equipment is properly connected, and the electrical and plumbing systems are correctly designed for the building. The model can also be used to identify potential issues before construction begins. For example, if the model shows that the ductwork is too small for the necessary airflow, the designer can adjust the design before construction begins, saving time and money. The model can also be used to ensure that the mechanical room has enough space for maintenance, repair and future expansion.

The model can also be used to simulate the performance of the mechanical systems. This can include running energy simulations to determine the efficiency of the HVAC system or simulating the flow of water through the plumbing system. This step helps to ensure that the mechanical systems will be energy efficient, cost-effective and meet the needs of the occupants. Mechanical room modeling also helps in the coordination of different trades such as plumbing, HVAC and electrical, during the construction phase. This ensures that all the systems are properly integrated and that there are no conflicts between different systems. This helps to avoid costly mistakes, delays, and rework during the construction process. Mechanical room modeling is a valuable tool for building design and construction. It allows designers to create accurate digital representations of mechanical rooms and systems, simulate their performance, and identify potential issues before construction begins. This helps to ensure that the finished building will be efficient, cost-effective, and meet the needs of the occupants.

Benefits of Mechanical Room Modelling

There are several benefits to using mechanical room modeling in building design and construction:

  • Improved efficiency: By simulating the performance of mechanical systems, designers can identify potential issues before construction begins and make adjustments to improve the efficiency of the systems.
  • Cost savings: By identifying potential issues early, designers can avoid costly mistakes and rework during the construction process
  • Better coordination: Mechanical room modeling can help to coordinate the work of different trades, such as plumbing, HVAC, and electrical, which ensures that all systems are properly integrated and there are no conflicts.
  • Better understanding of the building: Mechanical room modeling allows designers to create an accurate digital representation of the mechanical room and systems, which helps them to better understand the building and its systems.
  • Compliance with codes and standards: By creating a model, designers can ensure that the mechanical room layout is in compliance with local building codes, fire codes, and accessibility codes.
  • Better maintenance and repair: Modeling can also help to ensure that the mechanical room has enough space for maintenance, repair and future expansion.
  • Energy efficiency: By running energy simulations on the model, designers can optimize the building's mechanical systems to make them more energy-efficient, reducing energy consumption and costs.
  • Meeting the needs of the occupants: By simulating the performance of the mechanical systems, designers can ensure that the building will meet the needs of the occupants in terms of comfort and safety.
