MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SOLUTIONS
The original mechanical design/assist construction project required Trautman & Shreve, Inc. to take the lead with development of 3-D CAD fully coordinated drawings. These preconstruction building information modeling (BIM) diagrams included schematics for structural, electrical, fire protection, mechanical and plumbing systems. In doing so, Trautman & Shreve identified architectural, structural, and other discipline conflicts to coordinate proper mechanical construction documentation prior to construction. This provided significant efficiencies in the field through a maximized fabrication process, while eliminating the need for rework.
