Sprig Electric has been participating in BIM coordination on various projects since 2005. Our BIM staff is well versed in “Big Room” coordination and clash detection on projects of all sizes and types. Our internal 3D design protocol ensures that we create and coordinate our work within the project model prior to coordination with other trades. This provides efficiency in resolving clash detection in the big room scenario and tends to consolidate the schedule for completing coordination.

Sprig Electric’s BIM staff is well versed in the use of AutoCAD MEP 2014 and REVIT 2014 as a base platform for 3D design. We currently utilize numerous file transfer protocols and formats for cross coordination between other trades and the project model including:

  • Share File Sites
  • AutoCAD Drawing Files
  • AutoCAD to Revit Conversion
  • PDF
  • PDF to CAD Conversion
  • DWF Files
  • Navisworks .nwd Files
  • Navisworks .nwc Files
  • Total Station (Trimble) utilizing Point Creator for field layout

Sprig Electric’s typical BIM process begins with construction of 3D models of project specific components such as lighting, cable tray, sleeves, j-hangers, panel boards, switchgear, and transformers. Sprig Electric models to levels of development as pre-determined by the Owner/Design team. Models are then utilized for clash detection ensuring conflict free construction. Additionally, models are used for information by which we pre-fabricate construction components for efficiency.
