Building Information Modeling

gbc engineers implements BIM planning method in almost all of our projects. In this way, we ensure high-quality and efficient detection of very complex building structures in every construction phase.

BIM is the new buzzword in construction planning. Nowadays, numerous planners speak of 3-dimensional building models and mean BIM. However, BIM is much more than that.

“Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a planning method in construction that includes the generation and management of digital virtual representations of the physical and functional properties of a building. The building models represent an information database about the building in order to offer a reliable source for decisions during the entire life cycle; from the first preliminary planning to dismantling." - Source: NBIMS

In addition to the geometric data of the building, data on manufacturers, material properties, costs and deadlines can be managed in the BIM database (5D). When using BIM, it is essential that all planning parties already integrate their planning processes into the model.

The modern creation of formwork and reinforcement drawings starts with the creation of a 3D model that depicts the building geometry. Views, vertical and horizontal sections in the drawings can then be automatically derived from the 3D model. As a result, any cuts can be created from any geometric bodies with less effort. A change in the 3D model is then automatically tracked in the section on the drawing.

gbc engineers implements almost all projects with the BIM planning method. This enables us to ensure high quality and efficient recording of very complex building structures in every service phase. Entering the reinforcement in 3-dimensional form enables you to check whether there are collisions between reinforcing bars and fixtures, openings or other elements. You can also check whether the reinforcement has been installed in all areas.This significantly reduces the susceptibility to errors in reinforcement drawings.
