BIM (Building Information Modelling/Management) is a fast developing technology, a work tool for architecture, engineering and construction professionals, or rather a new approach in the building industry. The essence of this approach, compared to a traditionally scheduled project, is the additional time and energy introduced in an early stage, which results in a significant advantage for the developer. The invested surplus will return many times in the later stages, both financially and due to the predictability of the project.
BIM means for us not only the implementation of the client’s wishes, but also the possibility and even need of following up a continuous technical and technological development. By introducing BIM workflows in our design process, our aim was to generate an even more disciplined attitude in our designers and so satisfy the ever changing demands of the developers, which affect the construction phase. Moreover, an as-built intelligent modell can be the base of a modern operation that can be digitally simulated.
A 3D design is only the first step towards BIM in the course of creating and maintaining an up to date data base. We use the modells and their structured data base more and more often even in the design phase for making presentations, supporting design meetings or preparing different simulations or analyses. As general designers, we have a growing need for spatial collision detection (3D) to eliminate contradictions between the designs of the different disciplines. Every designer benefits from the introduction of BIM workflows as they help preparing schedules (4D), modell-based quantity surveys (5D), operational simulations (7D) and the predictability of other processes.
We are proud to be among the first Hungarian architects who have used BIM workflows. Our most important BIM based projects: Puskás Ferenc Stadium 207,984 m2 | Downtown Sports Center 3866 m2 | Liget Operation Center 4621 m2 | Budapart D Building 19,000 m2
