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

  22. 22. Optimisation of Data and Building • Early stage design • BIM process with many software tools • Example of optimisation • Parallel to BIM model Typical pressure distribution under a raised floor Optimised air flow Global Data Consulting Mike Edwards, Arup Associates Doha
  23. 23. Optimisation of Data and Building • Above floor airflow management : Typical problems with open frames – Open network frames cause breakdown of the Hot-Aisle/Cold Aisle concept. Hot Cold Hot Cold Hot Cold – Hot exhaust air from server racks recirculates around the network equipment causing overheat. Hot New layout – Hot exhaust air from server racks is captured by ceiling plenum. – Network equipment in open frames is cooled successfully. Cold Global Data Consulting Hot Cold Cold Hot Cold Cold Mike Edwards, Arup Associates Doha
  24. 24. Initial Studies: For space planning and building form. Revit dynamically reported the room properties for outline MEP calcs and to minimise the building footprint. Global Data Consulting Mike Edwards, Arup Associates Doha

  38. 38. Data Centre in the Desert Summary •Revit used for ASMEP design development •Now on site with the contractor using 3-d model too •Benefits to the project with better coordination with scheduling and design data flow •Approvals unable to use the model •2d deliverable produced and Revit model unused beyond design •A better building!!! The future....? Global Data Consulting Mike Edwards, Arup Associates Doha
