North Mechanical Contracting & Service is a full-service mechanical system solutions provider. They were hired to generate material takeoffs and fabricate all mechanical and plumbing components for a laboratory building. They wanted to speed up design and fabrication workflow.
CHALLENGEIn the past, North Mechanical used manual processes to measure end-to-pipe, pipe-to-hanger dimensions, manual quantity takeoff and individual component labeling. The process was tedious, prone to errors and inefficient.
OUR APPROACHProvide a solution that eliminated unknowns and created a more automated and accurate fabrication workflow that reduced labor and material costs, improved design accuracy, and shortened project timelines.
SOLUTIONTrimble® SysQue® add-on software for Revit to create precise project plans aligned with detailing, fabrication, manufacturing, and installation requirements. They also used Trimble Field Link for layouts.
“There is a real need for more intelligent, fabrication-ready models that have the actual system components included. That’s why we turned to Trimble SysQue.”
- Dustin Allen, Project/BIM Manager, North Mechanical Contracting & Service
Saved over $1 million with improved accuracy and install speed. Fabricated over 90% of piping off-site, reducing footprint and labor requirements by 50%. Created an accurate schedule for takeoffs, saving 400% time. Improved design and accuracy, resulting in zero change orders.
