Precise and digitized design with Building Information Modeling (BIM)

A cooperative, forward-looking planning is needed so that complex construction projects succeed. Model-based work is essential for this process. With Building Information Modeling (BIM) we have a highly innovative method at our disposal for several years with which virtual, three-dimensional building models can be generated out of all collected design data in multidisciplinary and centralized work – long before the actual building is taking shape.

In this way, construction projects can be comprehensively illustrated already at an early stage: technically, functionally and in terms of architectural design as well as with regard to the project execution, costs and schedules. The BIM method is particularly suitable for the design of complex buildings, but also for difficult civil engineering structures and advanced transport infrastructure projects.

Although this type of intelligent, data-based building modeling is still under development, we have consistently focused our working processes on this technique for several years. With many years of experience as a general planner, BIM is not just a vision of the future at iproplan®, but an aspiration: we therefore work continuously on the efficient implementation and optimization of this method in diverse projects. In-house BIM coordinators take care of consistent knowledge transfer and a smooth technical execution; our employees are regularly trained on the latest technologies. Planning and design become more transparent and precise. – A real promise of quality!



What is actually the use of BIM?

Quality through transparency:

The data-based modelling virtually summarises all information relevant to the design. Hence, the model makes it possible to conduct various simulations and evaluations at an early stage: risks of unwanted effects during construction and operation of a building can be minimised; possible collisions will be detected and eliminated. Time schedules and costing can also be optimised on this basis.

Better coordination of planning partners:

All participating design experts are connected in the same model. This eases the interdisciplinary collaboration of the individual engineers and architects and makes them more efficient. Their communication has the same basis: design variants can be simulated more easily; changes are immediately visible at the model for everyone.

Validity and attention to detail:

All design data is centrally included in the model – accumulated over the entire project period. Through this process the model is always up-to-date and features all the planning details. Thus, decisions in the project context can be taken on an updated and solid data base.

Sustainability in the design process:

The extent and precision of modeling allow viewing a building throughout its entire lifecycle: from the design and its execution up to operation and maintenance. The model “grows” with its tasks.
