Things important to us
«to BIM or not to BIM»
At the Aarau Cantonal Hospital, the interface between planning and execution has been completely overhauled. Away from large-format plans to tablets: BIM2Field. Not on a small section as a trial, but full scale for the entire 560-million construction.
Such a leap in scale requires careful planning. Thus, long before the actual start of construction, (Building Information Model) test models were exchanged with the master builder Marti AG, Bauunternehmung, in order to check the processes, hardware and software on the planning and execution side and to optimize the type and structure of the modeled data. Once an initial consolidation had been achieved, the other specialist planners and TU Implenia also got involved in the preparations. The time was well invested: the site worked digitally right from the start without any adjustments. Now the shell of the building will soon be completed, and we are pleased to note that it worked well not only at the beginning, but throughout the entire period and with the most diverse structural solutions. Digitization continues, but an intermediate step has been taken. How does BIM to field work? This, our joy and a little pride about the success at KSA is captured in the small teaser clip.
Thanks to all who believed in it from the beginning and to all who let themselves be converted to it and contributed with commitment to the joint success!
