The MEP Detailer's Guide to Earlier Clash Detection and Better Collaboration

June 23, 2020 Trimble Buildings

Changes during the design and construction of a project are inevitable and in many cases end up producing a better end result. But other changes aren’t such a good thing, like those that result from a mistake or other situation that could have been avoided.

You can reduce the potential for unwanted changes by designing Revit models with more detail from the beginning. When you’re able to evolve the engineering model into a constructible model directly in the Revit platform, you can identify potential clashes earlier and increase collaboration with engineers and other subcontractors.  

When you produce fabrication-ready models, you’re able to: 

  • Detail with more accuracy

  • Reduce change orders and rework

  • Achieve greater productivity

  • Increase profitability

Read on to deepen your understanding of the risks in how you’re detailing today and how you can avoid them.
