6th workshop for promoting Building Information Modeling BIM – BIM in infrastructure

6th workshop for promoting Building Information Modeling BIM – BIM in infrastructure

December 4th 2019 (Wednesday)

Target group: Public authorities from Public enterprise for state roads, Ministry of transportation, companies, engineers, architects, academy

What is this workshop about?

Civil engineering and infrastructure are the logistic, production and mobility basis of our modern society. We can say that the level of modernization and efficiency of a society is proportional to the degree of development of its infrastructures. It is due to the incentives of Public Administration and European Directives that aim to improve the efficiency and to enhance better management of the complexity of infrastructure projects. Transitioning BIM into the domain of infrastructure projects has provided challenges and emphasized the constructor perspective of BIM.

Top 5 Challenges for Civil Infrastructure 

We see five critical challenges facing those managing the high-profile, large-scale projects in these fast-growing regions:

  1. Deliver faster – Speed to delivery time is shrinking, as pressure builds with so many other economic interests depending on the use of this infrastructure. This means project managers must find ways to build safe structures faster than ever.
  2. Save more – Cost-effective work remains key, particularly since public willingness to pay for public projects is higher when it’s evident that cost-effective measures are being used during construction.
  3. Manage the data – These massive projects generate large amounts of information from various BIM environments. If this information isn’t tracked and managed effectively, inconsistencies and errors occur.
  4. Communicate effectively – Owners, engineers, and civil designers on these projects are under more scrutiny than ever. They need to collaborate and communicate throughout the project – with each other, with stakeholders and with the public. They must have access to information and be able to share what they know with others, with full transparency.
  5. Think big – Contractors hungry to take on these new opportunities need to show that they can think holistically, switching easily in scope from highway to bridge planning or rural to urban infrastructure work, and can manage a full range of challenges. The popularity of new construction styles, such as design-build, shows that owners are looking increasingly for “one-stop solutions” to design and construction.

The benefits of BIM for Infrastructure

Work in the same model

... as contractors and clients.

Secure your business

... and uncover design problems.

Export data from the model

... for automated machine control.

Simulating what-if scenarios

... and construction site logistics.
