Hilti BIM Services

Design and modelling for a smoother transfer from office to jobsite

BIM (Building Information Modelling) has brought the design, planning and execution of construction projects into the digital age.

Hilti's BIM offering goes beyond just having BIM objects available to download. We have dedicated teams ready to collaborate from design all the way through to construction.

Which BIM Services do Hilti offer?

On modern jobsites around the world BIM is used to plan pipes, ducts and cables. However, the matching mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) supports are usually not part of the BIM model. Consequently, each trade often defines their own supports, mostly based on experience rather than engineering. 

This is a missed opportunity. Dedicated BIM teams at Hilti can help you to fully harness the potential of end-to-end digitization, from improved collaboration to lower material costs. Expert support is delivered via four main services:

1. Framework

Set a clear starting point, slicing the project into conceptual – yet optimized – solutions.

Deliverables: 

  • Project sliced into individual applications
  • Optimized schematic design for MEP supports
  • Hilti service offer for the design services
More about framework

2. Design

Evolve the concepts into designed solutions, defined by individual Bill of Materials and engineering reports.

Deliverables: 

  • Designed MEP supports (“typicals”)
  • Individual bill of materials and engineering reports
  • Individual clash and exception reports
More about design core More about design specifics

3. BIM modelling

Add the designed supports directly into your BIM model and report any issues that may need re-design.

Deliverables:

  • MEP supports added to BIM model
  • Report of exceptions (issues)
  • BIM-2-Field data
More about BIM modelling

4. Drawings and bill of materials

For a smoother transfer of the design in the office, to construction on the jobsite.

Deliverables: 

  • Shop drawings
  • Overview drawings
  • Suggestions for cutting, kitting and pre-assembly services

Design software for Modular Support Systems

In the office, Hilti PROFIS design software helps you to design both simple and complex supports, without additional engineering advice. Plus, you can easily export your designs directly to AutoCAD® or Revit®

MEP Supports Selector

On the jobsite, with the MEP supports selector, we make it easier for you to choose from the endless list of small components by grouping them into 'Typicals'.
