BIM-MEPAUS Revit Add-in Live Demonstrations

As part of our agreement with AMCA’s BIM-MEPAUS initiative, we wish to see each initiative benefit from the other.   BIM-MEPAUS has been ‘kicking some goals’ lately, so those of you in the Building Services industry should read on!


After 18 months of development the BIM-MEPAUS Revit add-in software will be released on 1 April 2012.  The software consists of customised Autodesk Revit MEP templates, schedules and content which are tailored to the BIM-MEPAUS standards and protocols.

Key dates:

  • Brisbane – 16 April 2012
  • Sydney – 17 April 2012
  • Adelaide – 18 April 2012
  • Melbourne – 19 April 2012

There are two events proposed in all four cities outlining the benefits of software demonstrations:

Event 1: Head Contractors, Building Services MEP Consultants and Contractors (12:00-1:30pm)


  • Notwithstanding investments made to data in library and software content development, BIM-MEPAUS will significantly reduce modelling costs moving forward as a whole-of-industry effort that promotes standardisation.
  • Rather than working in a lonely BIM environment, BIM-MEPAUS will ensure that the design community has the tools necessary to support integrated project delivery and yield greater value added processes for design to fabrication.
  • Given the appetite shown to date consultants can expect clients to be requiring projects to be documented in BIM-MEPAUS moving forward.

Head Contractors

  • BIM-MEPAUS documented projects are more likely to be constructible and easier to deliver with lower project time, quality and cost risks.
  • BIM-MEPAUS documented projects are going to be consistently documented from one project to another.
  • BIM-MEPAUS documented projects will be able to be more easily used for scheduling, cost management and sustainability.

MEP Contractors

  • BIM-MEPAUS based projects will require development of REVIT capabilities and changes to current workflows.
  • BIM-MEPAUS properly implemented will reduce your construction costs.

Event 2: Suppliers and manufacturers (4:30-6:00pm)

  • BIM-MEPAUS and managed content is the best way to build on current supplier/contractor arrangements.
  • BIM-MEPAUS and managed content BIM-MEPAUS is the lowest cost means of engaging in BIM enabled IPD based projects.

Those willing to attend either demonstration event should RSVP by COB Monday 10 April 2012 at the following email:  Refer to the BIM-MEPAUS website for more information.
