At MDS we provide a multitude of services to help meet your project needs and goals. Click the buttons on and off to read more.
BIM or Building Information Modeling is a process that involves creating and using an intelligent 3D model to inform and communicate project decisions throughout the design and building process.
BIM has revolutionized the construction industry and is an everyday activity at MDS. Our diverse team can create, adapt and manage all disciplines of 3D building modeling to meet project specific requirements.
At MDS we can help make BIM a reality for you and your team. We understand that BIM requires high-quality constructible content which is why we have invested our time, monies, and training in keeping current with the most advanced software available that allows us to construct models to meet project level of detail (LOD) requirements for both field construction and prefabrication needs.
We work transparently with your team to represent and develop construction ready model(s) for mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) disciplines to be shared for coordination and collaboration throughout the BIM process.
Here at MDS we model multi-disciplines under one roof, making it easier and more efficient to coordinate a total project.
MDS offers BIM Management Services for both hosting and facilitating projects, Clash Checking with reports and BIM Execution Plans tailored to meet your specific project requirements. See our BIM Management Tab for additional information on these services.
Do you want to control your own destiny? Depending on the project, mechanical contractors often times can take on the responsibility of
