Data Center Chiller Replacement
MEP 3D Modeling, Drafting, Laser Scanning, Reality Capture, Coordination and Rigging Logistics Planning for Fabrication of Mechanical Piping and a Chiller Replacement.
Avoided Costly Rigging Stoppage, Cancellation & Project Delay
Scope of Work
Elite CAD Designs was chosen by a mechanical piping contractor to model, laser scan, coordinate and produce mechanical shop drawings for JP Morgan Data Center chiller replacement in Brooklyn NY.
While not a scope requirement for the project, Elite CAD Designs took the initiative to performed a rigging and installation simulation/analysis that saved the project an estimated $250,000 cost overrun not accounting for schedule delay.
Elite CAD Designs discovered that the new Chiller would not fit through the rigging path. Had this condition been discovered on the day of shutdown, street closure and crane pick the cost could have caused significant financial harm to MJH and JP Morgan.
Elite CAD Designs uses Building Information Modeling (BIM) & Virtual Designs & Construction (VDC) technologies to alleviate unforeseen changes, conflicts, surprise schedule creep and hidden construction costs. Elite CAD Designs process properly managed project risk, shortened this construction schedule and reduced the project cost.
