Using 3D modelling, service coordination becomes more accurate and adds additional benefits such as clash detection, scheduling and material take-off’s. FHP works to full BIM Level 2 standards and use the BSRIA BG06 proforma to produce stage-based design deliverables. Our CAD services can be tailored to individual project requirements, producing 2D, 3D and data-based outputs including 4D & 5D information.
BIM modelling represents a key element of our service delivery.
Our Digital Engineers work collaboratively with other members of the design team the development of our models throughout the concept, construction and handover phases.
We follow the PAS1192-2 framework for BIM development and are experienced in delivering models according to a variety of required outputs, we can create simple models with a lower level of development or more complex models consisting of exact equipment sizes and access requirements.
We utilise leading software such as, Autodesk Revit, Revizto, Navisworks and Autodesk BIM 360.
At FHP one of the most important goals for the utilisation of BIM is the physical coordination of systems between disciplines. One of our core skills is BIM coordination where we use the latest tools and technology to provide spatially coordinated building services models and can demonstrate this utilising our Digital Engineering Suites.
By creating a model virtually, it allows us to represent all mechanical, electrical and public health components accurately in 3 dimensions were spatial conflicts can be easily identified and addressed prior to work beginning on site.
Our models allow for an enhanced degree of communication and are frequently used in BIM workshops where all stakeholders have gathered to discuss coordination issues.
BIM Level 2 is now seen as common practice throughout the private and public sectors, with contractors working on government projects required to operate with a fully collaborative 3D BIM environment.
Our internal standards follow the principles and processes recommended in PAS1192 and all our engineers are fully trained to deliver Level 2 projects.
FHP are employed directly by Contractors and Specialist Sub-Contractors and we have the expertise to Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and prefabricated construction. We provide BIM solutions that enable mass assembly off-site, in controlled environments, before being transported to site, resulting in shorter construction times, significant cost savings and greater efficiency.
FHP DfMA experience includes prefabricated common bracketry ceiling corridor & and riser module racks, plantroom skids, modular plantrooms, prefabricated bathroom pods & utility cupboards.
Conflict reporting and clash detection play an important part in our service delivery role at FHP.
Whilst we use clash avoidance techniques during our BIM modelling, we undertake clash detection exercises to ensure a coordination issue that would traditionally be found later on site, with a likely time and cost impact, can be resolved virtually before any construction work starts.
Using leading coordination software Autodesk Navisworks Manage, we use clash detection to find both hard and soft clashes to identify if there are components occupying the same space or if access to equipment is being restricted.
Clash Detection Reports are created, and we work closely with the design team to resolve the design conflicts during the relevant design stage.
Through the creation of the 3D model, FHP’s skilled team of Engineers can generate a fully coordinated model to produce fully dimensioned construction drawings.
"We were initially introduced to FHP by a Trade Contractor as their specialist designer. We were so pleased with their performance we have subsequently instructed FHP on a number of schemes since and are one of our ‘go to’ designers. FHP and in particular Ryan Singh are knowledgeable and professional and always provide very prompt service. We have subsequently recommended FHP to other industry contacts and will continue to do so."
"We have worked with FHP on a number of residential projects, of varying scales. They have been knowledgeable and professional, with a relaxed and friendly approach. Most importantly for us, they take a flexible approach to problem solving, offering pragmatic ideas at all stages of design development."
’’We have worked with FHP on a number of projects and they are consistent in their delivery of a professional and quality service. FHP also works flexibly which I think sets them apart from the competition, especially where flexibility & creativity are required for complex and challenging projects’’
"FHP deliver to our specific requirements, providing the information and detail we need. The working relationship is good. They are experienced, great to work with and responsive."
"FHP are one of the key companies on our shortlist of MEP Consultants. They have worked successfully with us on several Galliard projects. Based on our experience to date with they are a great company to work with."
"FHP has recently demonstrated its technical ability to offer an alternative cooling solution to a planning issue at the Luton Street Project - Westminster. Being able to propose innovative solutions is a differentiator that FHP is able to offer with proactivity."
"It was a pleasure to work with FHP on both the Bank Station Capacity Upgrade and Duke of York as part of the Victoria Station Upgrade. They bring an excellent level of professionalism and experience. FHP provided us with the “Full Package Deal” a team of cutting-edge designers, dedication and passion, going that extra mile. We look forward to working with them in the future."
"We have been working with FHP for 6 years during which they have become one of our favoured MEP Consultants. FHP consistently deliver a high standard of design and ensure design efficiency is at the forefront, providing schemes with budget in mind. FHP are easy to communicate with, offer good technical guidance and have a competent team of engineers. I’m sure we’ll work with FHP to deliver many successful future schemes and would highly recommend them."
"We’ve worked very closely with FHP over the past few years, they’ve been integral in supporting tenders, development opportunities and our live projects. Their expertise in the sector has led them to being fundamental in our success over the years. They are not only extremely knowledgeable but are also always a pleasure to work with. Thanks FHP."
"FHP have been supporting HfL on one of our schemes as MEPH client advisor. They were brought onto the project late but have been fantastic as they were able to bring themselves up to speed very quickly grasping our key concerns. Their attention to detail and thoroughness for site inspections and document reviews has been invaluable. FHP have given us the confidence and assurance that all elements of MEPH are compliant."
