Our scope of work was to create the 3D BIM model and prepare the shop drawings of the drywall panels, ceiling framing,
and embed plans of the construction project.
There were a lot of framing specifications of studs for different levels with various conditions.
Held regular meetings with the client to collect data-driven inputs to help us eliminate errors and work on drawings accurately.
Any updation in the wall frame caused us to regenerate the drawings again and rework the annotation part as well. When we needed to create the sheets using the assemble option, then we couldn’t generate shop drawings using MWF plug-ins because of the limitation of MWF files.
We separated the files for Wall Panel shop drawings generated by MWF and Floor Joist Shop Drawings generated from Assemblies. Also, we generated the shop drawings after all the updation work to avoid regenerating the drawings and reworking the annotation part.
Throughout the project execution phase, we issued 17 RFIs concerning drywall framing matters. Among them, we clarified a few points, and for those that were approved by the client, we proceeded based on certain assumptions.
