Salt Lake City, Utah, July 18, 2016– Cn3D Construction has hired Nikki Divers as their new BIM Project Manager! We are excited to have her join the team and expand our services and reach across the US.

Nikki Taylor

Nikki comes to Cn3D with an extensive electrical background. She started in the electrical industry in 2009 as a residential electrician. After experiencing projects in the commercial sector, she decided to attend Salt Lake Community College (as well as the IEC of Utah) to complete her 4-year electrical apprenticeship in the evening while working full time as an electrician during the day. During all of these endeavors Nikki became aware of the power of the 3D technologies and took as many AutoCAD, Revit and Navisworks as she could and immersed herself in these programs.

Her career has consisted of being an Onsite Expeditor, Electrician, Robotic Total Station Operator, Layout Manager as well as a leading member of a Virtual Design for Construction team. At Cn3D Nikki will be a project manager overseeing BIM on projects as well as training subcontractors in using robotic total stations to take BIM to the next level in the field.

When Nikki is not on a jobsite or modeling, you can find her hiking in the Uinta Mountains or skiing the Wasatch back. She also spends lots of time planning her next adventure to New Zealand with her family. You can contact Nikki at nikki@cn3dconstruction.com. Welcome her to the team!

Submittal Tracking with BIM

MEPF Equipment is one of the biggest changes a project undergoes from design intent construction documents to field install shop drawings. Keeping track of the three stages of submittals is critical to proper spatial coordination.

To help in this endeavor, Cn3D Construction has developed a 3D submittal tracking process to make sure every light, panel, AHU, pump and so on is tracked properly ensuring that the space designed is adequate to house all the necessary systems.

Three stages of submittals

1. NO SUBMITTAL

When Cn3D first receives a mechanical and electrical model, we add a generic clearance around all of the equipment and place a large X signifying we have not received a submittal on this equipment yet.

MECHANICAL VAV

 Submittal_Blog-_Generic_Stage

–       Generic VAV per the construction documents.

ELECTRICAL ROOM

Elec_Submittal_Blog-_Generic_Stage

–        Generic electrical room layout per the construction documents.

2. UNAPPROVED SUBMITTAL

After Cn3D receives the unapproved copy of the submittal from our client, we adjust the size and clearance on all the equipment in the model and place a large X with the word UNAPPROVED. This signifies that we are close to having the correct equipment in the model, but is subject to change.

MECHANICAL VAV

Submittal_Blog-_Unapproved_Stage

–       Have adjusted the size and clearance of the VAV per unapproved submittal.

ELECTRICAL ROOM

Elec_Submittal_Blog-_Unapproved_Stage

–       Have adjusted the size and clearance of the panels and lights per unapproved submittals.

3. APPROVED SUBMITTAL

After Cn3D receives the returned, approved submittal from our client we remove the X’s from said equipment and are able to move forward with assurance that the coordination is accurate.

MECHANICAL VAV

Submittal_Blog-_Approved_Stage

–       Have adjusted the size and clearance of the VAV per approved submittal.

ELECTRICAL ROOM

Elec_Submittal_Blog-_Approved_Stage

–       Have adjusted the size and clearance of the panels and lights per approved submittals.

As always, we require our clients to review all finished shop drawings and compare with their approved submittals.

This is a big step in the right direction to help the entire team during 3D clashing and coordination. The BIM and MEPF community has made a lot of progress in the virtual planning world; we want to share this advancement as well as hone it to be the best solution possible.

If you are interested in the Revit Family add-ons that make this possible, please contact Adam Alder (adam@cn3dconstruction.com) and Travis Beecher (travis@cn3dconstruction.com).
