Maple High Street is a high-quality commercial  building. Spread in 500 thousand sq. ft. of posh space. Case study: How BIM is saving time and money in project of Maple High Street. 

Here explains below how BIM has been used by its building services in Maple High Street Project. 
It comprises five floors, with 2 floor basement parking, along with office space, retail areas, entertainment premise  and hotel accommodation.
Using building information modeling (BIM), our building project design brief there was a prerequisite for BIM for all services within 2 Phase.
Phase 1 included the development of mall one side part, Shop's, A.C Restaurant, Offices, Gym, Revolving Restaurant and basement areas. And next one Phase 2  which included the development of mall other side, Shop's, Offices, Food Court, Ice skating and Auditorium.

Our approach

The main reason for using BIM on this project from the client’s perspective was for co-ordination purposes. The whole process of creating a model for such a large scale project seemed overwhelming considering the millions of components that would need to be fed into the project, at the beginning of the project this was tough, however making of the libraries and families for equipments using in the project went ahead at full speed.
During the internal design process as we selected equipments we were able to contact multiple supplier to supply us the BIM families so we could inserted actual equipment sizes and created a constructible BIM.
Designs become much leaner when you can visually walk through spaces and pick up wasted spaces.


Architecture and Structure

Our services cover every stage from conceptual and feasibility 3d model detail and quantity estimate of project. 
And construction Team to get from us.

MEP Services


Schedules of equipment that were put into BIM where taken off at the end of the project which meant accurate scheduling and numbers could be passed to the QC for pricing, saving all parties a lot of time and money.
Complete electrical systems were modeled including transformers, LV switchgears, busbar risers, sub-main/final distribution boards and circuiting all the way including light fixtures and socket outlets.
The model was extended to cover final electrical circuits where electrical circuit charts are exported in the model automatically, otherwise in itself would have been a time consuming exercise if the design were done in a conventional 2D platform.

Mechanical Piping:

modeled accurately in three dimensions so new pipes and conduits can be designed for clean installation in the void space. This requires extraction of the MEP elements, which means pipe runs must be located precisely in space with
their size, sag, and turn angles carefully measured and recorded in tables. This extracted information enables the designer working in the CAD environment to see and query MEP objects.
“The automated extraction was accurate and helped us get through the pipe modeling more quickly," adding that the automated measurements proved accurate to the specifications of the designers. Without the software, he would have had to delineate, measure, and trace each pipe run manually in the point-cloud processing package. This would have added weeks to the modeling phase of the project.


However, BIM is much more than that: It is a process for creating and managing all of the information in project that results in a built asset. The output of the BIM process is the model – a digital description of every aspects of the asset before, during and after construction.
Managing BIM through construction…

For optimal efficiency, this requires:

• Centralized and secure management of all information – including the models – throughout the project
• A standard set of workflows and other processes defined by the project manager for all team members to follow
Beyond these collaboration fundamentals, team members need to be able to view models quickly and easily, anytime, anywhere – especially in the field. And in many cases, they need to view only a detail of the model in order to complete a task or resolve an issue.
To examine an elevator or pinpoint a window, why waste time crawling through a huge model?
BIM files are large, ranging up to hundreds of megabytes in size. Project teams require the ability to distribute them securely and efficiently, which is often impractical using email or FTP sites.
They also need to link models to associated information – such as RFIs, drawings, manuals, specifications, and photos – so that the project value of BIM can be fully realised.
BIM is the answer, but we need to be clear on the question
