Orcutt | Winslow describes the implementation of AEC technology on its John S. McCain Elementary School project, currently under construction in Buckeye, Arizona. The main software applications used were Archicad, Solibri, BIMx, SketchUp, and Rhino. Archicad was used to model and document the project and was used for over 90% of the production timeline.
VisiLean is a cloud-based construction planning and scheduling application incorporating lean principles that can be used for high-level planning as well as individual construction tasks in the field. It includes BIM integration that allows the construction schedule to be visually tracked and managed.
This article describes the research that was conducted by a team at the Technical University of Denmark to study the impact of COVID-19 on the passenger flow in the Copenhagen Metro, using passenger flow data and station floorplan drawings as well as Bentley Legion software for simulation of pedestrian flow.
This article is focused on capturing the developments in the software available for BIM for infrastructure, including solutions from Site3D, CGS Labs and SierraSoft, Allplan Civil Engineering and Allplan Bridge, Autodesk Civil 3D and InfraWorks, and the many solutions from Bentley.
Now that BIM has conquered the building industry and is here to stay, this article explores the application of the same “information modeling” concept to infrastructure.
While IPD is still more of a goal than a reality for most of the AEC industry, there are a few ground-breaking projects that are already using this new collaboration and delivery method.
Standing 92 stories tall with a total height of 300 meters (984 feet), the Eureka Tower located in Melbourne, Australia, is not only the tallest residential building in the world, it is also one of the largest projects to be designed using BIM.
Dr. Paul Teicholz, Professor (Research) Emeritus, of the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University explores the gradual decline of field productivity in the construction industry and its main causes.
