SUCCESS STORY

Improve Fort Bliss Hospital Mechanical and Plumbing Systems

Customer Challenge

The project for COBB Mechanical Contractors and Fort Bliss Hospital consisted of coordinating the mechanical and plumbing trades at the manufacturing level for a 1,130,000 m² project including the main hospital, inpatient and outpatient clinics, the research administration building, the central service plant and the car park. All buildings were highly complex and met strict requirements.

Project Goals

The main objective was to coordinate the mechanical and plumbing trades and all required seismic bracing as efficiently as possible to minimize costs, time and problems in the field. In addition, it was to advise on any potential design issues and work in the early stages to receive responses from the design team prior to fabrication and installation. Complements were incorporated to improve the performance of the work.

Solution

By combining the help of AutoCAD MEP and Navisworks, we were able to detect and easily communicate the coordination issues to the other stakeholders and reach for the best solution possible.

Business Outcome

We helped the Fort Bliss Hospital to rethink all their plumbing systems and to unify them in their different enclosures. This project also was an opportunity for us to work with big companies and show how professional and committed our team is. Not only for the level of complexity of the work but also for being able to overcome all the obstacles that arise in such long projects.

Conclusion

Whether upstream, during the coordination process, or downstream, during the preparation of shop drawings, Autodesk tools offer countless possibilities to prepare for success, even on the largest and longest projects. And the possibilities are endless, as it is always possible to incorporate and even create additions and improvements throughout the process.
