The Future of MEP Design:

A Schnackel Engineers Executive Guide


The future of MEP design is to utilize AI to improve system coordination and optimization by performing all calculations in a revolutionary, hyper-efficient 3D modeling world, where every step is fully coordinated and detailed automatically by AI-enabled, parallel GPU processing servers. This technology will allow designers to issue shop drawing-quality, fully coordinated models that are designed and clash-avoided in 3D. By employing AI technology, design decisions can be made based on real-time Big Data. This dramatic improvement will connect designs to geographically-specific data sources only available in the Cloud.

The future of MEP design will impact the design and construction process in many powerful ways. Over the next four chapters, we’ll outline how MEP technology advancements will impact project costs, architectural design quality and integrity, and project risks, as well as expectations around architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) relationships.
