-How to deal with multiple software projects
-Mobile devices and augmented reality

About the Qatar BIM User Day:

Qatar University, HOCHTIEF ViCon and Teesside University proudly take the initiative to facilitate modern and innovative methods in the Gulf construction industry. The focus is Building Information Modeling (BIM), and our aim is to establish a knowledge platform with government, research and industry experts. The User Day aims to help people to share knowledge, discuss new technologies, and identify new potentials for BIM. More information: www.bimuserday.com Follow BUD on Twitter @bimuserday

2nd Qatar BIM User Day BIM Technology Market Demand

  1. 1. Market Demand and Requirements Prof. Nashwan Dawood Teesside University UK Speaker Name 1
  2. 2. The presentation addresses the following • What are the major technology requests/requirements? • How are projects dealing with the multitude of software being used at any given time? (Data exchange, IFC) • Accessing data when you don’t have access to the application? (Model viewers, terminal server etc.) • What about the mobile device market and how are they being integrated in today’s construction site? 2
  3. 3. Market Demand? • Information reliability. • Models available in different format and when and where is needed. • Efficient data structure to enable models to be used effectively efficiently. • Efficient use of standard library to enable rapid and fast model development. • Allowing multiple BIM files from multiple disciplines and organisations to be merged 3
  4. 4. Market Demand? • Collaborative viewing through game engines technology, clash detection, intelligent analysis. • Supply chain integration through distributed model • Change control and audit trail for corrections/updating • Version control 4
  5. 5. Data Exchange (Dealing with Multitude of Software) • The most used data exchange file format is DWG (AutoDesk). • IFC (information Foundation Classes) is open standard data files between different CAD software (yet to be utilised by industry!). • Browser based viewer for BIM (BIM server) • Integrated model based server (BS1192:2007) • Open-BIM 5
  6. 6. ‘OpenBIM’ initiative • a UK-based, open and non-product specific group initiated by BuildingSmart, focused on promoting open communication protocols as an integral part of BIM • Providing industry with education and support on the deployment of Open BIM process. • Funded technical project to enable a browser based models support IFC model files and using Saas (Software as a service) 6
  7. 7. Example of IFC exchange file • C Convert to IFC Analysis through a server/DB 7 7
  8. 8. Example of IFC files 8 8
  9. 9. Data Exchange (COBie) • COBie stands for Construction Operations Building information exchange. • COBie 2 standard, Facility management handover services enabling O&M data to be combined by BIM model and made to clients • The idea behind COBie is that the key information is all pulled into one format and shared between the construction team at defined stages in a project. 9
  10. 10. COBie stages • Early Design Stage (spaces, rooms, parking, etc) • Construction Documents Design Stage (building components, HVAC, alarm, fire protection, documents) • Contractor Quality Control Stage( shop drawings, type of materials, systems, equipment, etc) • Product Installation Stage (serial numbers for as-installed equipment and/or tags, others) • System Commissioning Stage (test certificates, preventive maintenance, etc) 10 10
  11. 11. Mobile viewers (accessing data) 3D based Mobile Viewer System of Construction Process BIM-based Field Management Technology Location Tracking Technology (A-GPS) Mobile Viewer Technology BIM-based 3D Visualization of Field Management Real Time Checking of Documents(Drawings, and etc.) Efficient Location Check in Field by GPS Technology Input Field Data by Camera, and Messaging Check Information Support Mobile based Field Management 11
  12. 12. Mobile devices and their integration on construction site • Punch-list app to annotate images for inspection • Capturing inspection details • Workface instructions (what to do and how to do it). • Managing construction progress through a web enabled 5D modelling 12
  13. 13. Web enabled 5D progress monitoring and updating ⓐ WEB based 3D Visualization of Construction Process ⓑ Link to Database of Construction Information (drawings, specifications, photos, and etc.) ⓒ Link to Process/Cost Data in 13
  14. 14. Web enabled monitoring using 5D modelling. 1414
  15. 15. Mobile devices: Augmented Reality • AR is an exciting technology that allow people to overlay 3D and VR models over life videos or images. • AR can be effectively used for infrastructure concept design, checking H&S, identify site progress, underground modelling. (Video) 15
  16. 16. Conclusions • Market demands accuracy and agility of BIM models • IFC/COBie are well developed BUT still to be effectively adopted by industry • Web enabled viewers and control systems are set to play a major role in future BIM. • Augmented Reality will play a major role in managing site operations. 1616
