At HACI, Design Coordination begins with our Pre-Construction Team and continues throughout the project. Our Pre Construction Team works closely with other trades to ensure full integration and space allocation within the structure, while maintaining your project’s desired Architectural vision.
HACI Mechanical offers fully integrated in-house CAD and coordination services utilizing Autodesk AutoCAD, Revit and Navisworks software. We work closely with the Design and Construction team to meet YOUR goals and expectations. Our detailed plans provide clear representation of all HVAC systems including equipment, ductwork and piping. We can also layer such systems as electrical, plumbing and fire protection to provide a complete project detailing for your review.
HACI can provide full three-dimensional BIM for your project. This enhanced process allows the Design and Construction Teams to view the project from multiple angles including a simulated fly-through view. This can be utilized to pinpoint areas of concern for further review, and can provide a detailed representation of how the finished product will look.
These services provide you the opportunity to identify problems and request any changes needed prior to construction, avoiding costly re-work in the field. Utilizing BIM, we can streamline the construction process to save valuable time and resources, ultimately enhancing your project’s bottom line.
HACI will also be involved in other aspects of pre-construction coordination and planning. Our personnel assigned to your project can attend coordination meetings, plan development milestone schedules (25%, 50%, 75%, and final), participate in code compliance reviews, review system efficiency, recommend alternate HVAC equipment for potential cost savings, and identify value engineering options.
HACI Mechanical possesses the in-house talent of team members with engineering, construction and practical ‘real life’ experiences in the construction field. From the beginning, HACI will dedicate the key individuals to work closely with the Engineer and the Architect to determine the most effective, efficient and cost-effective products and methods. Throughout our history, we have been identified as one of the best design/assist partners among the mechanical engineering community. Our practical experience and design knowledge enables us to become a valuable asset to the design team as well as the developer’s bottom line.
We aspire to the collaborative approach to design/build projects. We strive to maintain the desired quality while providing the best value for the HVAC and plumbing systems. HACI will introduce new innovative products that may be “out of the box” thinking. We will also interface with the electrical contractor and their designer to avoid shifting of costs to their scope when it benefits ours.
