Every Houston business owner wants to work in a building with dependable fire protection. A combination of fire sprinklers, fire alarms, fire suppression, and other systems keep people and property safe in an emergency. Of course, the first step is to install all the necessary components correctly and with code compliance in mind.
Today, architects have unique tools at their disposal that make it possible to design everything three-dimensionally on a computer rather than by hand on drafting paper. Two indispensable tools used for developing modern fire protection systems include Revit and Robotic Total Stations.
Kauffman Co. can design a fire protection system for your business using these tools for seamless coordination between planning and implementation. Then, we can perform a professional installation using the accurate measurements and designs made possible by Revit and Robotic Total Stations. Count on us for the services you need to keep your business as safe as possible from fire!
To learn more about Revit modeling for fire protection in the Houston area, please contact Kauffman Co. today.
Revit is a computer-aided design (CAD) software used to create digital 2D drawings and 3D models. The geometry rendered in this program is detailed with real-life information. The additional modeling, processes, and analysis capabilities allow for building information modeling (BIM), a characteristic that sets Revit apart from other CAD software.
Revit is highly equipped to facilitate the design of your fire protection system. Automated updates convey project changes in real time to ensure correct to-the-minute work drawings and accurate on-site assembly. The software incorporates NFPA, AU, and ISO standards for easy compliance.
For instance, by entering the desired clash tolerance for a sprinkler system, Revit uses simple rules to automatically distribute sprinkler heads throughout the digital model. The software even sizes pipes and connects them based on the routing option specified.
Before architects can create a model in Revit, they need accurate building measurements. That’s where Robotic Total Stations come into play. This tool facilitates efficient layout tasks for residential and commercial buildings. Its construction-specific functionality means it’s perfectly designed for taking measurements prior to installing a fire protection system.
Easy setup and one-person operation make it possible to collect all job site measurements as quickly, accurately, and affordably as possible. Data is displayed clearly and stored internally to eliminate user error. Plus, the rugged design of Robotic Total Stations makes it capable of withstanding rough job site conditions.
Get your fire alarm, sprinkler, and suppression systems installed faster, more efficiently, and with greater accuracy by choosing Kauffman Co. for the job. Our use of Revit and Robotic Total Stations seamlessly coordinates real-world measurements and digital fire protection system designs. Then, once the planning is complete, our highly trained and experienced technicians can perform the installation you need to realize the design’s full potential.
