Building Information Modelling for Building Services - Essentials (MEP)


This course is delivered by SquareOne Training

Online with tutor 

About this course:

As a result of attending this training you will be able to understand ’s interface and terminology, set up and begin a project, analyse your building model for performance, such as heating and cooling, create and modify ductwork, layout and create system piping, plumbing systems, fire protection systems and electrical circuits.

  • Describe Building Information Modelling and its benefits
  • Set up a new project
  • Learn best practices for 3D building services design
  • Use for building performance analysis

Areas covered:

  • Understand the  user interface and its basic drawing and editing tools 
  • Understand how BIM differs from traditional CAD 
  • Understand views and visibility -- the essential element of any  project 
  • Create sections and elevations with ease 
  • Visualise your model in 3D and review alternative designs  
  • Importing and linking architecture projects 
  • Best practices for distributing project tasks to your team 
  • Use  for engineering data calculations  
  • Represent the area required by each piece of mechanical equipment, and then use for analysis 
  • Use ’s analytical model for heating/cooling load calculations 
  • Create an HVAC system, check for interference, check whether design values meet standards 
  • Create supply and return piping, adjust sizing, check piping for interferences 
  • Size plumbing based on fixture unit values, calculate for flow 
  • Model electrical systems quickly and effectively 
  • Define voltages, assign devices to circuits, track loads, and automatically create panel schedules  
  • Create callout views for increasing levels of detail 
  • Create detail views for builders, fabricators or installers 
  • Eliminate errors with schedules that automatically update 
  • Create your own reusable geometry, from diffusers to diesel generators, with intelligent connectors
