Overhead Coordination for a 158,000-square-foot assisted living community in Rockville, Maryland. As the VDC Engineer, I was responsible for detecting routing issues on all six floors from ceiling to deck involving the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection trades.
Using 3d design review software Navisworks, I would solve for all routing issues by running clash detection. Clash detection is a user-controlled action of Navisworks, highlighting the intersection between the selected geometries of all trades.

After running clash detection, it was my responsibility to vet the clashes and to determine what is and is not an issue. Next, I would create a plan to reroute any system out of place. Once this is completed, a formal clash report PDF is generated. During a weekly coordination meeting, this clash report is shared with the foremen for each trade. Together we use the findings from the clash report to provide a permanent solution to each issue.
