BIM is evolving as one of the best tools in the built environment. Deploying BIM, construction professionals can adequately plan, design, manage and construct buildings and other infrastructures. While 3D modelling is famous in the BIM process, 4D and 5D information-rich models are widely required and appreciated by construction professionals and organizations.
2D visualization and model making have played vital roles in design exploration within the AEC industry. Advancements in software with three-dimensional render capabilities have allowed professionals to explore multiple options for their concepts and develop a realistic estimation of the final output before any money is spent on production.
What is the importance of laser scanning techniques and reality capture in the pre-construction process, what tools and skills are helpful and necessary, and how does it saves time and money?.
Istanbul Grand Airport (IGA) project is one of the world’s biggest airport project. From Design to Operation, BIM plays a crucial role to ensure efficient execution. Once all phases are completed in 2028, the airport will be able to accommodate 200 million passengers a year.
BIM delivers benefits throughout the building project lifecycle. Make better design decisions, build efficiently, manage and maintain building portfolios effectively. BIM methodology supports projects throughout the lifecycle of design, construction up to the operation of the building. This presentation will touch on the implementation of BIM in theory and practices based on experiences gained from various projects. Read More
African cities become the new home to over 40,000 people every day, many of whom find themselves without a roof over their heads. With the rapid population growth, there is a need for fast-paced development of housing infrastructures to accommodate the population.
In projects requiring ’BIM’ we are often asked to define the ‘LOD’ of objects within Building Information Models. In the Client’s Requirements as well as in the BIM Execution Plan, we need to fill long spreadsheets where objects are classified in different classification systems and a ‘LOD’ is required at each stage.
But are we sure that the ‘LOD’ concept is clear to everybody? Is it always associated to objects? Are we managing it the best way? And most of all, how can we verify and validate it?
