Our corporate success is due in part to our focus on communication and coordination. Integral to the operation of Welch and Rushe, our Coordination Department is at the hub of every project we undertake. Our coordination professionals are involved in every phase of a project, from concept to completion. Experienced in the mechanical and plumbing trades, our coordinators are prepared to handle every project type from Design-Build to Plans and Specifications. We work closely with the project engineers to orchestrate mechanical and plumbing designs that are specific to each individual project’s requirements. Since mechanical and plumbing systems are typically prefabricated and assembled in our Fabrication Shop, we craft our coordinated drawings with a high degree of detail and accuracy. Utilizing advancements in 3D computer aided drafting software together with powerful hardware, we combine our drawings with the drawings of other trades; identifying conflicts early and eliminating them before installation begins. By emphasizing proper coordination and design prior to field installation, we are able to maintain or improve the overall construction schedule.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) & 3D Modeling Precise
Coordinating with Fabrication Shop drawings is always a priority and is schedule driven. Welch and Rushe utilizes a variety of the top software applications for our BIM process. Using AutoCAD, QuickPen Pipe Designer 3D, Revit and Navisworks software, we are at the forefront of the industry, producing high quality design and trade coordination. We utilize BIM to develop our building systems to create the most effective fabrication and construction processes. Our experience has proven successful time and again from early in the coordination process to completion of as-builts. Our team’s education, knowledge and experience enables us to work successfully on BIM projects to assist our customers with design, composite coordination, LEED and operation requirements. We pride ourselves in being at the cutting edge of our industry.
