MAKING EVERY DESIGN PROJECT SEAMLESS
Design co-ordination is a multi-disciplinary process. Now, with the introduction of ‘Stage 3 Spacial Co-ordination‘ on the RIBA Plan of Work 2020, we make sure to provide a fast and accurate MEP co-ordination service. It’s far from a simple process and can often unearth all manner of unforeseen design issues. Therefore, we use our years of experience to make it faster, simple and more manageable. We use our intelligent clash-detection software to identify any spatial conflicts within a model. In turn, this lets us find and resolve those clashes in the most efficient way possible.
KEY BENEFITS OF CO-ORDINATION
Generally, 3D co-ordination is much better than its 2D counterpart. That’s because the software we use, enables a detailed, co-ordinated 3D build-up of the required services. And with BIM being increasingly used across the field, the co-ordination process is mainly carried out using 3D modelling software.
We’ve found that dedicated MEP consultants are usually only responsible for the design stage of a project. Therefore, they normally only produce their designs in the form of 2D drawings. This then puts the responsibility of co-ordinating the services onto the fit-out contractor prior to installation. Co-ordinating those 2D designs has notoriously been a long & tedious process for CAD technicians. That’s why we’ll normally convert those 2D drawings into highly detailed 3D models. This then lets you visualise the deigns more realistically, and detect any hidden clashes immediately instead of half-way through the build.

While 3D co-ordination is far superior, sometimes smaller projects just don’t need it. It can be faster to use 2D co-ordination on projects with minimal proposals, such as small power or fire alarm installations. We’ll help eliminate any clashes before they become costly fixes further down the line.
If you only need 2D co-ordination, you can trust that we’ll provide a reliable service that is of an equally high standard to our 3D co-ordination service. Everything we create is worked on with the upmost attention to detail and competency by an expert technician.
