INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

A PILOT PROJECT FOR LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT USING BIM TECHNOLOGIES

BIM is an information model of a building or structure that is treated as a single facility throughout its life cycle, from design to operation. This technology boosts the efficiency of development projects, reduces their cost, improves the quality of housing, and mitigates construction risks.

In 2020, INTECO representatives became members of the interdepartmental working group under the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities of the Russian Federation. The group will pilot the system to manage the capital construction facility life cycle using BIM technologies based on the Westerdam project. The pilot will offer enhanced approaches to building information modelling in the construction industry.

Currently, INTECO operates a cloud-based technical document management system serving as the basis for interaction with Westerdam designers. A regulation governing the entry of attribute and geometric data into the information model was developed.
