Installation model

Design Framework for Building Services 5th Edition (BG 6/2018), written by David Churcher, John Sands & Martin Ronceray, and published by BSRIA in June 2018 suggests that an installation model:

…shows all procured equipment and components with their actual sizes and precise locations as well as typical supports and fixings necessary for installation. If the Technical Design model has not been developed to the coordinated-specific level, then the Installation model will convey this. It is analogous to the level of detail in BSRIA Installation and Manufacturer’s drawings.

Typical object parameters to include along with geometry at this stage would include:

  • Actual size of object
  • Actual weight of object
  • Identification of actual item to be installed

Typical object parameters from Stage 4 should be substituted with data relating to the installed objects.
