A fundamentally new approach in architectural and construction design, which consists in creating a computer model of the building that carries all the information about the future object - Building Information Model (BIM), our company began to use in 2006 when developing the youth crisis center in Saratov. Building a virtual building model, incl. engineering communications was carried out on the basis of ArchiCAD software product. In 2011, when designing and coordinating the construction of the administrative building of Bosch (Engels), as the main software product for BIM we started using Revit.
On the basis of Revit, the tender documentation was computed, the engineering networks and technological communications were coordinated, and the spatial framework of the building was constructed. The use of BIM on the basis of Revit allowed us to project (from a draft), pass all approvals, build and commission the buildings of various functional purposes at the Henkel (Perm) factory, with a total area of 20,000 m2 in 12 months period.
