Remote Learning: MEP for ARCHICAD

May 7, 2020

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm  (ET)

Accreditation: 3 AIA LUs

Ticket Cost: $450

Level: Intermediate



Using ARCHICAD’s MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) Modeler tool can help you and your project team significantly reduce risk and waste.

The MEP Modeler can improve design quality, point out clashes, and detect problem areas well before they become actual problems.

In this session, you’ll learn how to turn your 2D MEP drawings into 3D with ease. What’s more, you’ll learn how the entire team will benefit from improved collaboration and communication, as well as streamlined project delivery across building system design, fabrication, and installation. We will show you how an accurate understanding of how MEP systems work within a space speeds the entire design process.
