We take pride in our thorough process, ensuring attention to detail from beginning to end.
What is services coordination?
Services coordination is a process where a series of clash reports are generated to ensure no clashes between services in a construction project.
For example, a clash report could be undertaken between ductwork and pipework. If there are any instances of a duct and pipe being in the same location, a clash would appear on the report. This clash is then assigned to a trade to resolve.
Why would I need services coordination?
Services coordination is a process that helps highlight clashes in a project’s modelling phase. This means that these clashes can be resolved before works commence on site, which, in turn, allows site works to be completed more efficiently, saving both time and money.
What does services coordination involve?
The extent of services coordination changes based on the individual project requirements. Drafting Solutions creates a unique process based on the client’s needs at the start of every project. Often this process will include the following:
- Chairing coordination meetings
- Running clash detection and assigning clashes to trades
- Creating overlay drawings showing all trades, architecture and structure
- Creating combined services penetration set-out drawings
- Creating combined services reflected ceiling plans
- Creating combined services wall elevation plans
What software do we use?
Drafting Solutions use many pieces of software to complete this process and can tailor the software packages we use depending on the project’s requirement. We have experience with the following software:
- Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD
- Autodesk Navisworks
- Autodesk Construction Cloud
- BIM Track
