Revit Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Model

As previously mentioned in my 'Intro to BIM' blog post, one of the advantages of using Building Information Modeling (BIM) for the production of construction documents is that it allows for superior coordination of architecture, structure and MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) systems. While I am not a mechanical or plumbing engineer, I was able to develop a schematic 3D model of the the mechanical and plumbing systems in Revit to coordinate their locations with walls and floor structure to ensure their would not be any conflicts when built in the field. Below is an isometric view of the HVAC supply (blue), return (pink) and exhaust (green).
