Award for the best
BIM infrastructure project
The Stuttgart Regional Council (RPS) and its project partner viscan solutions GmbH receive the first prize in the infrastructure category for the best BIM project. The new construction of the B29 Essingen-Aalen in the first construction phase. viscan solutions has the role of BIM consultant for the entire project. vigram contributes its innovative technologies in the field of “smart documentation”.
Transport Minister Winfried Hermann, Heiko Engelhard (RPS) and Nicolai Nolle are pleased about the recognition of the BIM pioneering work.
BIM Cluster Award 2021
Presentation of BIM pilot project B29, BA.1
Stuttgart Wagenhalle, on 21.10.21 the time has come. Around 150 guests on site and a good 100 participants on the screen will experience the BIM Awards 2021 in five categories.
The Stuttgart Regional Council applied with one of its BIM pilot projects, which are part of a phased plan that will run for eight years. Its goal is to implement BIM in civil engineering and infrastructure. And to gain BIM guidelines for all future tenders of the state from the knowledge gained. Because from 2027 onwards, construction measures are to be realised only with BIM methodology.
Heiko Engelhard, Senior Construction Director, of the Eastern Construction Department of the Stuttgart Regional Council and Nicolai Nolle, CEO viscan solutions, accept the award together.
For data acquisition, on the one hand drones and with the viDoc® also handhelds are used, which turn a conventional iPhone into a professional surveying instrument. On the other hand, apps and innovative services such as viPoint – an innovative technology from vigram to automatically optimise and classify 3D point clouds. Why? Point clouds usually provide 80 to 85 percent too much data. The information that is actually relevant must first be filtered elaborately by a professional. This is processed via Pix4Dmapper or Cloud. The interaction with established CAD software solutions, such as iTWOcivil from RIB, is also crucial. This ensures an optimal workflow. vigram and RiB have just announced their cooperation.
Finally, Heiko Engelhard gives an outlook. The 2nd construction phase of the B29 will start in spring 2022. The aim is to use the experience gained and to operate the construction site digitally to the maximum. The technologies from vigram are also at the heart of this project.
