The facilities, consisting of more than 400 apartments in 13 buildings, were built in the late 1940s. The aim with the renovation work is to upgrade and improve the energy consumption in the buildings to contemporary standards and to add more large homes for households with children. Furthermore, a new 300 m2 neighbourhood centre.
tnt has conducted a process based consultancy focusing on the democratic process for the residents, leaving the choice of the new types of kitchens and bathrooms up to the residents in each their apartments.
Choice of database solution
According to process owner Kristian Boll, tnt architects were searching for a database solution in which one could control these individual residents choices of kitchens and bathrooms, covering everything down to tiles, colours, types etc. After a test period with BIMeye as a successful Proof of Concept, tnt has now chosen Room Manager as their new database in the cloud.
”With BIMeye we will be able to centralise all the information and data we have from each apartment without having to draw up each apartment separately. This data will be synchronised between BIMeye and Revit so both drawings and lists of materials are updated simultaneously. This includes the individual resident’s choices. Through the database, we obtain a datasheet with a 2D drawing and a list of data such as colour, type of kitchen, type of bath chosen in each home.
