This class gives you practical insights and real-world tips for navigating the tight spaces, ongoing medical activities, and the life-threatening cost of failure that makes medical MEP risky for even experienced 3D capture professionals. Using actual hospital MEP case studies as a guide, the panel will arm you with a notebook full of lessons learned and best practices you can apply to your upcoming projects.

He is currently Managing Director of the Nederveld, a multi-discipline engineering services firm providing land planning, civil engineering, surveying, environmental consulting, high-definition scanning, forensic engineering and fire investigation. Vander Zwaag has extensive laser scanning experience with a concentration in the BIM and health care industry.
Revit®-based software is recognized as a building design tool for architectural, structural, plumbing and HVAC. At Whitman, Requardt & Associates, our water and wastewater engineers and designers saw the benefits others were experiencing by using Revit and decided to take Revit to the next level—for use designing large-diameter pipe used in water and wastewater process plants. With only AutoCAD® software 2D experience, the switch to Revit identified changes that were needed within our design process and workflow. These changes ultimately led to a better coordinated design for our clients, and Revit is now the tool of choice for many water and wastewater projects. In this class, I demonstrate how engineers and designers in the water and wastewater disciplines at Whitman, Requardt & Associates made use of Revit for more than plumbing.
