Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Construction projects today achieve an ever greater complexity. The various integrated trades of an object, as well as the necessary workflows and interfaces, are increasingly difficult to grasp. For us the Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a modern working method for designing, implementing and also managing such construction projects. On the basis of a 3D model, design, visualization, simulation and coordination functions are provided, which make early project decisions possible for both our customers and for us. These are only a few points that convince us of BIM.

Photorealistic visualization

Heiko Oste, Designer Engineer at DAHLEM

„The display results of the current BIM software are sensational and allow to quickly create a photorealistic visualization from a 3D model. This enables the client to preview their new building at an early stage. By changing from a two-dimensional drawing view to a spatial visualization, the development of the planning can be communicated more clearly. Thus the higher documentation quality becomes a decision-making tool. In addition, the linking of tenders, timelines and many other pieces of information substantially improves the workflow.“

Virtual Reality

Melanie Jeskulke, Civil engineer at DAHLEM

„The experience with VR glasses shows that we can brilliantly support our design with it. A major advantage is the fact that we can experience the entirety of the planning spatially. Collisions of different trades can be recognized early and rectified. In the near future, on-site project meetings will no longer be necessary, since all participants are virtually in the same place and communicate together via the VR glasses. The architectural design can be recorded in real time and seen fom different viewpoints. This results in faster and safer decisions. In addition, the operating staff can assess working conditions at an early stage and familiarize themselves with the new workplace.“

Information levels

Rainer Bleß, Design Engineer at DAHLEM

"In addition to visualization, the use of the information plane in a 3D model is also interesting. At this level, for example, a wall can be linked to a material. This makes it possible to generate reliable evaluations of the walls used in a project in a timely manner. This also applies to other components such as windows, doors or self-defined objects. In the design phase, the lists ensure accurate foundations of the cost calculation for the customer and the planner. "

Automatic collision control

Sandro Mundri, Technicians at DAHLEM

"The 3D model has some significant advantages. In addition to the photorealistic visualizations and the information level, the automatic collision check also plays an important role. With the help of this function, all components and pipe systems within a building can be checked for overlapping from the beginning. In early planning phases, collisions can already be corrected in this way. This reduces the risk of complicated adjustments and changes in a more advanced phase, which would require more adaptation and would mean a significant additional cost for all parties involved. "
