3D Design/BIM

At Continental Fire Sprinkler Company, many general contractors trust us to coordinate meetings and spearhead the coordination process because of our state-of-the-art 3-D design software.

We create our designs using AutoSprink, a complete 3-D design software, a product of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP) CAD. For years, we have coordinated sprinkler piping with subcontractor’s work, such as: mechanical ductwork, electrical work as well as miscellaneous plumbing piping etc.

AutoSprink is compatible with BIM software so we can export the AutoSprink drawing to 3-D Autocad drawings, and then be imported into the BIM software. During the design process, using the AutoSprink Software, it is standard practice to input the building structure as well as to input the MEP 3-D drawings. In doing so, we can recognize conflicts between subcontractor’s work as well as any potential conflicts with the buildings structure.
