March 14, 2012 energyair Share this post The building information modeling (BIM) coordination process has begun for Adventist Heath System’s Technology Building in Altamonte Springs, Fla. Energy Air, Inc. CAD/BIM Manager, Scott Murphy, met with the MEPF project team to review clashes and come up with workable solutions prior to the commencement of construction on the project. Once a floor is deemed “collision free,” the model is considered buildable, and fabrication and installation will begin based on the coordinated model generated during this phase. The project scope includes construction of a new technology building adjacent to Adventist Health System’s new headquarters building, which was completed in 2011. The six-story structure comprises nearly 200,000 square feet with additional work on the roof. When complete in June of 2013, the project’s installed mechanical value is expected to be approximately $4 million. Mechanical systems installed will include three water-cooled chillers, two cooling towers, one condenser water filter system, seven water-cooled, self-contained air conditioners, 10 computer room AC’s, 27 chilled water fan coil units, 170 variable air volume systems, six pumps, one air separator, one expansion tank, eight fans, four electric heaters, one electric duct heater, air distribution, fire, fire/smoke and motor operated dampers, internally and externally insulated ductwork, 14 variable frequency drives and a controls system. The general contractor for the project is Brasfield & Gorrie General Contractors. Learn more about Energy Air’s BIM experience. Learn more about Energy Air’s office building project experience.
