Brookfield Properties, operating under Brookfield Asset Management, is a global leader in developing and managing real estate investments across various sectors. Faced with the challenge of standardizing their architectural and MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) drawings for a series of multifamily buildings into BIM (Building Information Modeling) standards using Revit software, they partnered with Avant Leap. This collaboration aimed to transition their existing drawings into detailed and accurate Revit models to facilitate better management and coordination of their projects.
Brookfield Properties specializes in high-quality, sustainable real estate across multiple sectors worldwide. Their challenge was to integrate a complete set of architectural, structural, and MEP drawings for standardized apartment units into BIM standards, with the information being in various stages of completion and accuracy.
The Brookfield team had detailed drawings for a series of multifamily buildings that needed to be converted into BIM standards using Revit. The provided CAD and PDF drawings were in draft form, with many yet to be corrected or approved by the engineers, posing a significant challenge in ensuring accuracy and consistency across the models.
Avant Leap provided Brookfield with a dedicated team of Revit MEP and Architecture modelers. This team was responsible for modeling seven apartment units, offering two to three design options for each, alongside coordinating these models to ensure correct placement within the overall building blocks. Furthermore, Avant Leap created a Navisworks twin of the Revit Models to identify and communicate any interferences between architectural and MEP models, facilitating precise adjustments on the original files by the engineers.
Transitioning to Revit models managed through Navisworks for clash detection proved significantly more efficient and quicker than traditional methods relying on 2D Autocad drawings. Additionally, utilizing B360 for file sharing enabled both teams to access a unified 3D model as a source of truth, allowing for more straightforward and faster annotations and design modifications.
