General description

The seminar introduces the advanced technology of computer-aided design known as BiM (Building Information Modeling) It is not only a record of the geometry of the object but also a reflection of real technologies and building materials available on the market. BIM is useful not only in the design process but also the implementation and operation of the facility. The software selected for the project is presented on the background of related programs.

In the first phase of the seminar, participants form teams and prepare a teamwork scenario.

The entrusted design documentation represents several buildings, each developed by two independent teams. Teams recognise the assigned design documentation and specify the technology of building implementation in the field of ceiling walls, lintels of windows and doors, and roof coverings. In the second phase, participants implement selected communication and teamwork techniques to efficiently create a virtual model. During the carrying out of the model, selected persons deal with obtaining and supplying relevant parametric information related to selected technologies and building materials. At the end of the process, the teams present models and assembly sheets that form the basis for the buildings costs calculation.

Seminar summary:

– analysis and evaluation of the effectiveness of the adopted methods of team cooperation,

– analysis and evaluation of the availability and form of information about products and technologies,

– software analysis and evaluation regarding the effectiveness of the model implementation as a virtual equivalent of a real object.

Analyses and assessments are made by comparing the work of individual teams. The discussion leads to the selection of the most effective methods of achieving the objectives of the task.
