AbstractThe purpose of this case study is to highlight how the BIM modelling can lead to a smooth construction process for MEP (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing), Civil, Architectural, and Landscape works, which can aid the engineers in various project phases. An exploratory approach on a complex mega-project case study (El-Sadek & McCabe, 2017), where the project team was coached on exploring the BIM model to identify any clash and discuss with the technical team to come up with adequate solutions, which was done by holding twice a week regular meetings. This paper introduces the issues appeared during the early phases of the design process and continued all the way through the construction phases. While preparing the composite shop drawings, where each discipline/installation will have a clear corridor without interference with other disciplines/installations, and in a manner sufficient to ensure the avoidance of any clash that may arise during construction. However, what happens if the available corridor for all disciplines is very congested and insufficient to enable the designers from accommodating the space needed into coordination process? This case study triggers the need for identifying a new process in integrating BIM models in the coordination challenges through all the phases of mega-projects, as the complexity associated with mega projects appears to increase from one phase to another. From the lesson learned in this case study readers will know how integrating BIM in the coordination process in complex scale projects can decrease the clashes and improve progress of work during construction phase.
