1 1 Autodesk MEP Solutions Autodesk MEP Solutions Mechanical Electrical Plumbing Design for Buildings AMS | CAD Consulting Group

2 © 2005 Autodesk2 Autodesk MEP Solutions Consider this… Buildings are increasingly more complex Higher quality product demanded Clients expect tighter schedules and lower costs Result for MEP engineering firms Increased competition & lower margins

3 © 2005 Autodesk3 Autodesk MEP Solutions Business environment is changing  Increase in design-build  Sustainable design –challenging conventional building practices  New creative business processes  Risk transfer from owner to AEC partner

4 © 2005 Autodesk4 Autodesk MEP Solutions  High risk and liability due to errors and omissions in construction document set  Lost profits resulting from extensive rework and revisions  Poor drawing accuracy and unreliable project information  Design workflow inaccurate and uncoordinated. Your Business Issues?

5 © 2005 Autodesk5 Autodesk MEP Solutions  Improve productivity, accuracy & coordination  Increase efficiency by reducing tedious drafting.  Streamline the design process reducing errors.  Coordinate effectively with the extended design team. Introducing… Autodesk Building Systems Better Faster AutoCAD for MEP

6 6 Autodesk MEP Solutions Keep costs down “…helped us lift the information off the page and give it to the contractors in a form that they could understand - and price - properly” ”The clarity of the final product blew the client away. …really helped the owner and building operator visualize exactly what we were doing.” Doug Reinbold Principal Reinbold Engineering Group
