The annual Construsoft Tekla BIM Awards offer the users of Tekla Structures a great opportunity to present their construction project to peers across Europe. Our project Central Park in Utrecht is one of the projects submitted in the category Commercial Projects. Commissioned by building consortium Westflank Noord – a partnership of Volker Wessels companies Wessels Zeist and Wessels Rijssen – we contributed to the construction of this office building.
BIM was managed centrally within the building consortium. All parties involved shared their 3D model via a Document Management System. The model exchange was based on the open standard IFC (Industrial Foundation Classes), with the BIM basic Information Delivery Manual (IDM) as a starting point. Verification and validation of the models took place every two weeks.
André Robers, BIM Coordinator at Voortman Steel Construction: “Interaction and communication remain important focal points in the realization of these types of intensive projects. BIM stands for digital, integrated cooperation and innovation in the construction chain. That is what we, together with our construction partners, have been committed to in the past year.”
