Demand driven output

Demand driven output

An important advantage of working with BIM compared to 2D drawings, is that all elements are modelled. And that, according to the principle of ‘input = output’, all of these elements can also be extracted again. The result is that not only one total drawing, but different types of drawings can be generated from the model depending on the information needs. 

Under commission of KlokBouwOntwikkeling Inbo designed more than 100 houses and apartments in Parc Margriet; a carefully designed inner-city redevelopment project at the edge of the Nijmegen city centre. A complex project, in which the various buildings and basement have been fitted into the park. Two old and monumental trees maintain their place in the park and therewith determine the shape and division of the underground parking garage. 

The plan was completely designed in 3D and drawn up in Revit; from design to brochure drawings, from sunlight studies to detailed construction drawings. The models of the various councillors and suppliers were linked to our central BIM model and with help of Solibri checked and validated interdependently. Modelinformation is exchanged at a high level in native and ifc files.

In dialog with the implementation team of KlokBouwOntwikkeling we do not produce traditional construction drawings, but detailed construction drawings ‘new style’: demand driven drawings in which specific elements are highlighted. Drawings with exactly the right information needed for construction from the combined and validated models of suppliers and councillors. The time that is usually needed for the production of construction drawings, is thereby applied differently and much more specifical to exactly what is needed at the construction site.
