How will BIM evolve in 2021?

Source: BIM Today – BIM News Building information modelling (BIM) is one area where 2020 promised a lot that didn’t materialise as expected, Frank Weiss, senior director of new products at Oracle Construction and Engineering explores how BIM will shift in 2021 The disruption experienced last year by many industries has been unprecedented. In construction, the impact has ranged from ongoing projects being paused, to project starts being delayed, to stalled progress around the evolution of some construction practices. I’ve teamed up with two peers at buildingSMART International – Leon van Berlo, technical director, and Aidan Mercer, marketing director – to explore how BIM will shift in 2021 and how this will help the industry to move forward. By bringing the industry together, buildingSMART plays a critical role in making the challenges, opportunities, and considerations around BIM more visible by facilitating discussion to help drive …

Computational design helps deliver Australia’s largest sustainable tower

3D BIM modelling and a digital twin are supporting the delivery of 6-8 Parramatta Square, part of one of the biggest sustainable urban revitalisation projects in Australia As part of Western Sydney’s urban renewal initiative, the redevelopment of Parramatta Square will revitalise Australia’s second-oldest city centre to create a vibrant, cosmopolitan precinct. The area will span three hectares and offer 290,000 sq m of premium office space and residential, retail and civic facilities. At the heart of this urbanisation effort are 6 & 8 Parramatta Square, with 8 Parramatta Square set to be Australia’s largest commercial tower at 55 storeys and 243m in height. The A$600m iconic project will broaden the city skyline and incorporate cutting-edge, sustainable, world-class design, reflecting the highest standards of global architecture. Award-winning architectural firm Johnson Pilton Walker (JPW) is the lead design firm collaborating with …

BIM Methodology Helps Design the World’s Longest Double-Decker Bridge, Saving Time and Costs

Connecting a Patchwork of Highways When PT. Wijaya Karya (WIKA), an Indonesia-based company that provides construction, mechanical and electrical services to the civil construction industry, was contracted to design the Design and Build Harbour Road 2 Project in North Jakarta, Indonesia, budgeted at USD $530 million, the project team quickly realized that traditional 2D design methods would not deliver the large and complex 8.95-kilometer toll road development on time and within budget. “The total volume of the concrete used in this project is a quarter of that of the Giza pyramid,” said Fery Safaria, engineering manager at WIKA. “The total scale of the project is about four times that of Vatican City.” The project was sorely needed as residents of Ancol and Pluit needed a more efficient way to travel between the cities, with the existing path a frequently congested …

Going Digital Is No Longer Optional

Cadalyst.com | By: Mark Coates It has now been seven decades since Alan Turing, the pioneer of modern computing and artificial intelligence, wrote, “I propose to consider the question, ‘Can machines think?’” Turing’s question has now been proven beyond doubt in many fields: In chess, the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue beat former chess grand master Garry Kasparov in 1997. In science, the HiSeq X genome-sequencing system can map tens of thousands of human genomes in a year — a task that initially took an army of scientists from 20 universities across the world more than 13 years to complete. In the construction and infrastructure realm, professionals now need to ask these questions: “Do you believe that machines can help you to think better? Do you believe that information and data can help you to work smarter?” What’s the Payoff? As …

Advancing the Utility of the Future With Connected Data

www.globalenergyworld.com The utility industry has experienced more change over the past decade than it has in over a century of operation. A handful of data points illustrate the historic transformation that is underway and quickly accelerating. According to the IHS Markit Global Power Industry Outlook, just 1% of U.S. power generation came from wind and solar in 2008. By 2018, that number had risen to 9%. IHS projects says it will reach 18% by 2028.   Similar projections about the growth of distributed energy resources (DER) such as rooftop solar, energy efficiency, and battery storage are easy to find. Indeed, Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) estimates that the global market for storage will double six times by 2030. For instance, Texas—the largest consumer of coal in the United States, according to the Energy Information Administration—has seen wind power generation surpass …

Help Building Owners Get the BIM Data They Really Need

Cadalyst, USA. Ultimately, every player in a building project needs building information modeling data — but it must be rightsized for each unique contribution. AEC firms can offer clients a great service by helping them understand which portions of the BIM data will serve them best. For designers, builders, and constructors, building information modeling (BIM) increases clarity of vision: Modeling makes it easier to communicate design intent, to study performance, and to plan the physical coordination of tasks. This clarity is rooted in collaborative effort and shared purpose in bringing the building into existence.
