The Cube Presentation - Abstract

  1. 1. 14 15 Modelling Levels of Development with reference to RIBA Digital Plan of Works WWW.BIMVECTORWORKS.COM | 020 8358 6668 | SUPPORTING OPEN BIM WORKFLOWS FROM CONCEPT THROUGH COMPLETION BIM DESIGN DAY WhatistheCUBE? This project sets out to explore and demonstrate the key methods of the BIM process and the potential for creative design within those workflows using Vectorworks Architect. For this project a key objective is to demonstrate the benefits of an organised workflow and to show that organisation can have an empowering rather than restricting effect on the creative process. A second objective is to embed the project with a level of longevity, which will allow the material to evolve and develop over time. In order to achieve the objectives, a key strategy for the first part of the project is to produce a building with a minimal cube form and a stripped down aesthetic. This specifically allows participants to concentrate on the underlying principles and workflows at work. Once those founding and core principles have been fully defined, the project scope will open up to fully explore the creative aspects of Vectorworks Architect. The ‘spine’ or framework of the project is to be set within the context of the RIBA Plan of Work, British Standards (esp BS1192), Levels of Detail and BIM protocols including Business Execution Plan ( BEP ), Employee Information Requirements ( EIR ) and the Government Level 2 BIM Mandate including COBie. InternalCollaboration The Cube is a 4 storey commercial building, with office spaces and san auditorium. With the release of truly game-changing features in Vectorworks 2016, our project team was able to collaboratively develop and build this Intelligent model within a relatively short space of time. Project Sharing allowed our team of 5, which consisted of Architects, Technology Specialists and Interior Designers, to transition through the varying LOD’s (Fig 1.1) at an astounding pace. Working files were distributed to each team member, who then committed their changes to the project file, all at the click of a button. The CUBE - Demonstrating a BIM workflow Computers Unlimited WWW.BIMVECTORWORKS.COM | 020 8358 6668 | SUPPORTING OPEN BIM WORKFLOWS FROM CONCEPT THROUGH COMPLETION BIM DESIGN DAY Seven Steps to BIM 1. Setup & Standards Organise your Stories, Design Layers and your Classes for modelling instead of for drafting. 2. Start BIM early You do not need to plug in a lot of information at the beginning of the process with BIM. You can actually start at a very conceptual level, refining your model as you go along 3. Manage your Data Utilising intelligent objects such as Spaces, instead of Polygons/Extrusions, enables you to produce reports and schedules from this information. 4. Intelligent Tools Intelligent tools might mean parametric tools or direct modelling tools which can be defined and edited using parameters such as size or configuration. 5. Replace not Remodel This ability to refine is extremely powerful for design development from a LOD 200-Design Intent model, to a LOD 300-Assembly model. 6. Coordinated Views Plans, sections & elevations can be extracted from the same model. Specific views and detailing can be highlighted by specific class/ layer visibilities. 7. IFC Data. Interoperability is key to BIM. IFC data allows you to share your BIM model and data with other design teams.
