Electrical pre-construction service is one of the primary services we provide.
By choosing us, you get an experienced electrical team with deep knowledge of NFPA-70, NFPA-110, NEMA, NECA standards, ADA, FHA, and local city codes, and the following service:
- Feeder & branch redlines and conduit & wiring schedule at the first stage of the project. We will also analyze other design sets and make sure that all devices are fed according to the loads. We will check the voltage drop, conduit fill, and derating factors for the homeruns.
- Electrical BIM model considering the best and site-orientated constructability practice and spec requirements. Also, the conduit schedule from item 1 will be transferred to the Revit parameters.
- Wise coordination approaches and participation in coordination meetings with other trades.
- Detailed shop drawings for the site team. We do it in as much detail as the site needs to decrease the time, manpower consumption, and waste materials.
Both electrical and control engineering are two indivisible parts of our scope on industrial projects (food and chemical processing plants, pharmaceutical, oil and gas sector, steel and machinery plants).
During the first stage of the project, we are placing all instruments according to the I/O list and Curating the best places for the main cable routing in coordination with other trades.
At the later stage, we are checking P&IDs and filling the thousands of data to the instrument’s Revit families. Initial data is used for the automatic creation of connection diagrams and wiring details.
Completely finalized, coordinated, and integrated process control system pre-construction documentation effectively reduces construction and maintenance costs.
Although the developers of Revit still do not distinguish telecom as a separate discipline (only as part of «electrical») this is no less part of our work than the electrical scope.
Considering our experience with data center projects, sometimes the telecom part is much more complicated than the electrical part in terms of modeling and coordination.
But nothing is impossible.
We use codes, design standards such as ANSI/BICSI-002, ANSI/TIA-942-A, and ANSI/TIA-568, operation, standards, and the best design practice to create a fully coordinated BIM model and construction drawings.
The 4-D model could be created as a time and man-power saving instrument during the installation of telecommunication racks.
Security and safety strategies are continuously advancing. A modern security system is a multi-layered system that uses various components, such as access control, intrusion detection, CCTV, rescue assistance, emergency campus phones, etc.
Audio-video systems make our buildings comfortable to live in and work in and include: announcement and automated voice systems, sound masking systems, room projector/screen systems, conference rooms, and huddle room systems.
The main benefits of using VDC technologies:
Access control door devices are modeled and checked for compliance with an access-egress strategy of the building.
For AV systems, video devices are coordinated based on their resolution and sound pressure calculation.
BIM/VDC technology is increasingly used for active life safety systems like fire alarms. BIM model becomes not only 3D visualization but a database of fire alarm systems.
Network addresses can be automatically assigned to the devices simultaneously with riser diagram creation.
We strictly follow NFPA-72, NFPA-101, and the best life safety practice during modeling and drawing creation.
Be sure we will not forget to calculate voltage drops and battery capacity.
Complete information and fully integrated with other systems (HVAC, smoke management, BMS, electrical, fire suppression) can significantly improve construction and maintain efficiency.
The main challenge while working on the BMS scope of work is to bridge the gaps between the Revit BIM model and the actual BMS operation during the life cycle of the building.
Our company advantage is that we not only model BMS components and cable routing as the Revit objects (sensors, control panels, remote monitoring and control units etc.) but also consider this in close connection and deep analysis of other MEP trades.
Knowing ANSI/ASHRAE, NSPC, and NFPA-13 requirements no less important than knowledge of electrical codes and standards.
Given the huge number of protocols and types of connections in the BMS wiring we have experienced BIM specialists in our team with deep knowledge of building management system.
Our goal is a fully completed BIM solution that can be integrated into the operation and facility processes.
