SEPS BIM Tool is a Revit add-in that automates the creation, placement, and validation of medical equipment within a BIM model. The add-in helps to reduce costs and improve productivity by automating tasks that currently take many man hours and identifying errors earlier in the design process. The Space and Equipment Planning System (SEPS) is a health facility planning tool jointly developed by the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs. SEPS information is maintained in a database and distributed to designers as two Excel files (a list of space requirements and a list of equipment requirements) which are unique to each facility. This functional planning approach defines the requirements necessary for the facility to meets its operational goals in terms of spaces and equipment.
- Automates the creation of BIM objects using external data
- Automates the placement of BIM objects based on external requirements
- Validates BIM attributes, such as object location, against external requirements
