eVolve MEP and ENGworks Global Announce Partnership to Develop MEP Industry Content Standard
eVolve MEP and ENGworks Global have announced their partnership to develop a new mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) industry content standard, which will improve data interoperability for MEP subcontractors, building product manufacturers (BPMs) and technology providers. Both organizations work closely with MEP subcontractors to improve the productivity of the building information modeling (BIM) process and deliverables.
A common challenge for the MEP industry has been the lack of content standardization. As a result, MEP contractors have had to develop content based on their own standards, while content service providers and BPMs deliver customized content which is rarely compatible with the contractor’s data. This causes issues throughout the BIM process and with final project deliverables, causing errors and delays.
The partners are bringing together a combination of skill sets featuring Revit-based BIM software for MEP construction plus virtual design and construction (VDC) content creation for the MEP industry. Collaborating with leading global MEP BPMs, RFA and ITM interoperability standards will be developed to meet the specific needs of local project requirements around the world. This effort by industry partners exemplifies the notion that “one plus one can equal three.”
eVolve MEP is a Preferred Partner of Autodesk, and Autodesk is supporting this joint effort. Through this alliance, ENGworks Global and eVolve MEP will seek participation from MEP companies and manufacturers to drive the MEP industry forward, while ensuring global standards are developed and rolled out expeditiously for maximum acceptance and rollout success.
