BIM / Revit / Microstation
Recognizing a shift in the industry towards BIM (Building Information Modeling), Heapy Engineering began embracing this process early. Heapy Engineering has completed a multitude of BIM projects.
Our BIM projects have been completed with the AutoCAD MEP product, the Revit MEP product, and the Microstation Bentley product. We have used the NavisWorks product as a model aggregator and to perform more thorough clash detection than the base products. We have an understanding of IFC’s and the XML schema in order to transfer project information from one software platform to another. We use several energy modeling software package’s like IES (Integrated Environmental Solutions), Trane Trace 700, Carrier HAP, and eQUEST to name a few. We have utilized these products to perform energy analysis, lighting analysis, and CFD modeling for our projects.
Our Engineering Resources team is dedicated to monitoring the development of the GSA BIM Standards, which includes the standardization efforts by the National Institute of Building Sciences and the US Army Corps of Engineers, as our firm firmly believes that BIM is the way of the future and already used in the present.
