Reduce Construction Cost With Accurate BIM Clash Detection Services

BimZoom is a BIM service provider that combines vision and customer perspective into a clash coordinated 3D model and offers precise clash detection services. For over 15 years our team has been successfully resolving conflicts amongst mechanical, electrical, plumbing, architectural, and structural designs. MEP consultants resolve design conflicts from 3D CAD/BIM model streamlining workflow for the construction stage through its comprehensive clash detection services.

Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire protection components are integrated into a single model through software such as Revit or Navisworks.  BIM Coordinator performs MEP clash detection and report generation for MEP engineers. The clashes are then resolved to produce a clash-free model, facilitating a streamlined workflow and installation of MEP systems.

Our Clash Detection Services Include:-

  • Mechanical / HVAC Clash Detection
  • Electrical Clash Detection
  • Plumbing Clash Detection
  • Fire Sprinkler Clash Detection
  • Architectural Clash Detection
  • Clash Report Generation
  • Critical, Moderate & Low Clash Detection
  • Hard & Soft Clash Detection
  • Workflow (4D) Clash Detection

Three Types Of Clashes In Building Information Modeling, As Follows: –

Performing MEP clash detection on any BIM MEP model, one can rectify three different types of clashes, as follows: – 

Hard clash – 

Hard clashes are caused when two objects collide or occupy the same space. This could be a sprinkler pipe going through an HVAC duct or an electrical conduit colliding with a plumbing pipe. 

Soft clash – 

When an element isn’t provided with the geometric tolerances it needs, a soft clash occurs. An air conditioning unit, for example, may require certain clearances for maintenance, access, or safety, which another element would not allow, which is referred to as a soft clash. 

Workflow clash – 

Conflicts in equipment, material delivery, scheduling, and other deadlines are identified using workflow clash detection (also known as 4D clash detection). These types of clashes can be avoided by sequencing a project properly so that it runs smoothly and on time. 

Types of Clash Detection Software

Since the process of clash detection is closely related to that of BIM, clash detection software frequently doubles as BIM software and vice versa, with BIM software also providing MEP clash detection capabilities. In light of this, there are two primary categories of conflict detection software:

1. Tools for BIM integration that can detect clashes. capable of spotting conflicts between several non-proprietary software types. Its drawbacks are mostly related to the usual issues with integrating several software in one location.

2. Design software for BIM. A proprietary conflict detection tool that exclusively recognizes errors in its own models (the ones created by this same program). A well-known example of this type is Revit, a vast platform with a variety of features including clash detection.


Through precise MEP clash detection services offered by BimZoom, MEP professionals can harness the following benefits: –

  • Precise Engineering Design Documentation
  • Lesser Change Order During the Construction Phase
  • Improved Team Coordination and Collaboration
  • Automated Process of Clash Detection and Resolution
  • Integrated and Streamlined Approach


Why is Clash Detection in BIM?

A clash is basically interference between two entities in a construction project. When multiple disciplines work on a single project, clashes are produced. When two elements in a building design compete for the same space, it’s known as a clash. Clash detection is a technique used in Building Information Modeling (BIM) to determine where or how two elements of a building component/service interfere with one another.
