Planet Plumbing has a large internal design team which designs in both 3D REVIT & 2D CAD. Our team of hydraulic engineers & consultants are ready to design your project from inception through to final delivery. We develop creative, comprehensive and sustainable plumbing solutions for any project by planning, designing and managing permanent solutions to complex problems. From design and engineering to construction and management, Planet’s technical knowledge, local connections and broad market experience allow us to deliver specialized services across the entire project.
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
BIM takes CAD to the next level. BIM is a set of technologies, processes and policies enabling us to collaboratively design, construct and operate a project in virtual space. BIM has grown tremendously over the years and is now the ‘current expression of digital innovation’ across the construction industry. BIM gives engineering and construction professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. BIM fully integrates coordinated building information models to create visual 3D design walkthroughs. This enhances client understanding, ultimately ensuring fewer changes throughout the design and construction process.
Planet Plumbing’s design team can also provide hydraulic documentation and significant value-added benefits, such as faster design delivery, a more accurate installation, better prefabrication, more practical and better designs, and detailed coordination with other services.
In addition to BIM, we combine our modelling software and collaboration tools with Navisworks to eliminate any possible clashes with other services during the design phase.
Computer-Aided Design (CAD)
CAD has long been integral to the field hydraulics for many years and we still use it successfully. It can quite often be a solution when trying to keep costs down whereby a simple design is all that is required, and 3D modelling may be an overkill. Our designers are there to meet your needs and those of your project and can provide hydraulic documentation and significant value-added benefits. Our team specialises in both design development and workshop drawings, and provides as-built documentation upon project completion.
