Service Penetration Management An Ardmac Solution


Challenges in service integration

Traditionally, the true cost and total sum of penetrations is unclear and can remain largely undefined.

Where services interface with, or pass through internal partitions a tertiary construction element is created, upon which multiple stakeholders depend. This is represented in model form by a penetration in a partition, allowing services to pass from room to room, clash free. The sum total of penetrations can be costly to clients, with varying commercial impacts based on quantity, size, height above floor level, location and type. Traditionally, the true cost of the penetrations is unclear and can remain largely undefined until well into the construction programme. Additionally, service penetrations require specific and often expensive firestopping materials to maintain the integrity of fire rated partitions and to conform with building standards. However, despite the need, the industry lacks one end- to-end dedicated sectoral standard or defined BIM or site process for the modelling and management of service penetrations. The existing standard management procedure for this element of works is limited in most cases.
