The Bradley BIM Initiative has partnered with SysQue to provide “prefabrication-ready” Bradley product BIM files for both both;

  • SysQue (Revit MEP format \ RFA) and
  • Autodesk Fabrication (AutoCAD format \ DWG-ITM).

This includes Bradley TMV, re-circulation mixing stations, dialysis boxes and shower valve models will are configured to serve both;

  • SysQue-Trimble (Revit) [AHR Booth N9513]and
  • CADmep (AutoCAD) [AHR Booth 11830] for plumbing fabrication clients.

Revit-BIM Manages Construction Site Assets and Safety

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jun 3, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Several Autodesk University classes featured contractors sharing their use of BIM to Manage the Construction Site Assets & Safety and BIM for Constructing the Building.

The world’s leading contractors have completely DIGITAL construction sites. The larger the project, the more dependent they are on BIM and digital technologies.

This includes oil & gas exploration and mining; which are long-term construction sites.

Contractors use BIM to Manage the Daily & Weekly Positioning of Construction Site Assets. These models and respective paperwork are reviewed weekly by Site Safety Engineers & submitted to governing agencies.

Here are a few KEY business points on how BIM-based Contractors use BIM to

  1. create REPEAT client business

  2. engage their successful Team Members on future projects,

  3. prefabricate MEP systems and room configurations,

  4. plan & phase construction project processes, plan and improve safety,

  5. track, manage & financially plan construction site assets,

  6. order and install their proven Building Product Manufacturers (Supply Chain)

BIM for Toilet Room Design | Construction Specifier AIA Convention Issue

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 6, 2016 9:45:40 AM

Bradley's article 'BIM for Toilet Room, Washroom and Locker Room Design' has now published in the May 2016 Construction Specifier |  AIA Convention Edition (Page 84-94

The article quickly summarizes the five (5) current design, engineering and construction BIM process fundamentals; that are actively used for designing and constructing buildings.

If you're not using BIM processes; this introductory section serves as base knowledge for the 8 evolving BIM proceses; that are detailed in the next section.

1) The BIM Bench

2) BIM All-in-One File

3) BIM...All-for-One

4) BIM Projects Dependent On Building Product Manufacturer Content

5) BIM is Not a Silo


The article isolates a summary of 8 BIM-dependent processes; that are utilized for the design and construction of Toilet Room, Washroom and Locker Room Design.

1) BIM Design\Construction Documentation

2) Free BIM Visualization

3) Advantages with BIM-assisted Specification Writing

4) ADA and Code-Checking

5) MEP Engineering

6) MEP & Toilet Room Pre-fabrication

7) Project Cost-Estimating and Building Product Procurement

8) Commissioning, As-built Documentation and Facility O&M


For your convenience; the Construction Specifier online magazine; provides a printing option to select pages and print the article to your printer (hard copy or PDF print driver)

Download 2015 30-page BIM Report:

McGraw-Hill BIM SmartMarket Brief | BIM Advancements No.1

SmartMarket Brief: BIM Advancements Series focuses on the perspectives of the largest architects, engineers and contractors on 3 critical topics:

  1. how they measure their success with BIM,

  2. how models are developed specifically for construction/fabrication, and

  3. how information mobility is leveraged to improve efficiency and productivity.

BIM Success Factors

This research provides insight into the percentage impact of BIM on 6 key project outcome metrics, and the frequency and value of 10 project factors that influence success with BIM.

It also identifies the frequency and negative impact of 6 obstacles to BIM effectiveness and the 4 most important success factors for BIM.

  • Key Findings

  • Impact on Outcomes

  • Success Drivers

  • Obstacles to Success 

  • Top BIM Success Factors 

 Construction Modeling

This research provides insight into the frequency and value of seven types of 7 types of construction models produced by trade contractors, and 6 key uses for construction models on projects. It also identifies which parties are most frequently authoring construction models for specific uses.

This portion of the study focuses on the developing practice of construction modeling, specifically by examining which types of contractors are producing models for what uses and how much value they are providing to improve project processes and outcomes.

  • Key Findings

  • Modeling by Trade Contractors

  • Uses for Construction Models

  • Authoring Construction Models
