TECHNOLOGIES

M&R prides itself in combining vast experience with the latest technologies.
We utilize the following software/technology for our BIM projects: Revit, Navisworks, CADDuct, EstDuct , CAMduct, Trimble & Navisworks.
Here are some of the BIM projects we have completed:

NASA IES Integrated Engineering Services

Design Build Project
Over 175,000 Pounds of duct directly downloaded from 3D BIM model to our manufacturing plant
Duct pre-fabricated in assemblies to minimize field labor
Louver plenums over 100’ in length

Sentara Leigh Bed Tower

Utilized 3D design Revit files converted to
TSI/CAD, clashed using Navisworks
Duct directly downloaded from TSI/CAD to plasma tables
Duct pre-fabricated in assemblies to minimize field labor
Main duct risers over 120" in size
Total project over 500,000 pounds of duct

CNU Science Building

Two phase project with over 400,000 pounds of ductwork
All ductwork systems were fully BIM modeled in 3D to resolve conflicts with other trades.
Second phase involved complex roof duct supports that were up to 14 feet in height and 16 feet in width weighing
over 500 lbs. (BIM model of roof duct and supports shown) 

HRSD Building

Design build project
Prefabricated 80% of ductwork prior to steel being erected on site
Direct downloaded product from BIM model to factory
Utilized Trimble unit to spot hanger locations

Fort Lee Campus II

Design build project
Prefabricated ductwork systems
Direct downloaded ductwork from TSI/BIM 3D models to factory
Utilized Trimble unit to spot equipment and hangar locations for over 250,000 pounds of duct on the project.
Aluminized steel ductwork with special sealant for high temp tank exhaust systems

Regent Chapel

M&R utilized BIM technology on Regent Chapel in order to coordinate large spiral duct runs(up to 44" in diameter) routed within the truss systems. Although BIM was not a contract requirement, M&R modeled certain complex areas of the project to help identify conflicts and resolve issues long before our field crew mobilized.

Modeling the truss system from the actual fabrication/truss shop drawings to locate double wall duct main routing within webbing of trusses saved RFIs and field delays. Modeling in 3D also helped identify conflicts and resolve issues within the tall steeple structure that houses the outside air intakes. In addition to applying BIM technology, our Project Management staff utilized self-sealing ductwork and Dyna-Tite cable duct hanging methods to further expedite install. Overall, we pride ourselves on utilizing the latest technology to allow us to execute our services at a rapid pace with a higher degree of accuracy.
