BIMEYE is the digital backbone of Vasakronan’s winning construction project, Celsius in Uppsala

According to Johannes Ris, Byggstyrning, a new era of digitizing and collaboration was necessary. And with that a new way of thinking BIM; a new mindset.

BIMEYE is the digital backbone of Vasakronan’s winning construction project, Celsius in Uppsala

The Construction Management company Byggstyrning uses BIMEYE Cloud solution to enhance collaboration in several of their large construction projects.

BIMEYE and BIM360 side by side

At the Symetri Nordic BIM Summit which was recently held in Stockholm, Johannes Riis, BIM manager of Byggstyrning, contributed with his speech on ‘BIMEYE and BIM360 Design, A cloud collaboration story’. Here, he told the audience about the many benefits of working with BIM and collaboration through the two cloud solutions; BIMEYE and BIM360.

Formerly, Johannes Riis was BIM manager at Tikab, where he in a period of 3 years was in the group that implemented BIMEYE in the large Slussen Lock Project with much success.

Today, as a partial contractor, and on behalf of the developer, the company Byggstyrning specializes in procurement by taking charge of the stakeholders and suppliers in the construction projects. Their responsibilities start already at the idea phase and last all the way through to facility management.

Byggstyrning is a 20-year-old company with 10 employees. At the moment, they work with a project portfolio of about 1,3 Billion SEK. The main task is to hire consultants and set up teams to run the projects. They cover the following:

  • Development throughout the entire life cycle.
  • Construction Management
  • Agent for building owners recruiting consultants for the various tasks.
  • Gather teams for projects.

 

Vasakronan

One of the customers to Byggstyrning is Swedens largest facility owner, Vasakronan. Connected to this customer, Byggstyrning has 75 BIMEYE users running several projects in BIMEYE; Head Office of Livsmedelverket and Tyréns new head office in Stockholm.

The numerous benefits of the digitalization

According to Ris the benefits of the digital collaboration methods are numerous:

‘By managing the data in the construction projects, the risk of human flaws is radically reduced. We call it construction data management. Adding BIMEYE to the whole process has the following benefits:

  • BIMEYE holds all values.
  • We get contractual review options for the tenants.
  • You can zoom in on digital data, making small notes easy to read.
  • All the data comes from BIMEYE’

As the owner representative, taking care of the main tasks like project management, cost estimate, tenant processes, bidding process and production management as well as commissioning, having a tool like BIMEYE on board is a necessity. And it can be used in many ways.

A new era of digitizing and collaboration is necessary. And with that a new way of thinking BIM; a new mindset. So, people in the projects should start sharing and communicating through data instead of physical documents. And the tools to do this was through the cloud solution BIM360 Design and BIMEYE.

As Swedens largest facility owner, Vasakronan continuously works with the ambition to map and improve their property development process. With this as a background, an annual project-specific survey is carried out with the purpose of finding and rewarding the projects that are best experienced in working by all parties involved. The prestigious project Celsius was nominated and got the prize as the No 1 best ranged project, measured on all levels, both when it comes to construction, project management, employee thriving and how they work with BIM and more.

The construction of this 10,000 square meter large building is planned to be ready around new year 2021. The new house will be a strong contribution to the Uppsala Science park and one of the most innovative environments in Sweden. 500 employees in advanced labs will be the tenants – Livsmedelsverket being the largest tenant renting 8,000 square meters.

In 2016, before the digitalization project that included BIMEYE, Vasakronan was challenged by 4 primary problems.

  1. Information Silos
  2. Duplicate Information
  3. Information Drop between the phases
  4. Different companies, different systems

In order to solve these problems a new era of digitizing and collaboration was necessary. And with that a new way of thinking BIM; a new mindset. So, people in the projects should start sharing and communicating through data instead of physical documents. And the tools to do this was through the cloud solution BIM360 Design and BIMEYE.

 

 

To optimise the workflow, the information from the Design phase should be collected as data that would be used in the next phases for optimized data management and production.

Ris explains some of the new rules of thinking in this way in his speech:

Cloud Design Collaboration

The Design Phase

  • Where the information is born
  • Model first - Drawing second
  • Model based delivery
  • Everything that physically needs to go into a building needs to be checked if it fits

Communicate:

You need to tell people what you need and when you need it.

Manage data not documents

Optimised cooling – cut down of costs

In one case in this construction, where the HVAC enterprise benefitted from BIMEYE and the DATA management, they cut down costs radically by cutting down the number of cooling plants, which they could do thanks to the detailed descriptions coming from BIMEYE.

Ris describes it like this: ‘The HVAC technicians would take out the data from BIMEYE and then implement it in their respective programs. After that the collected data is synched back into BIMEYE. The values are very specific, which made it possible to cut down on the number of cooling plants, as we detected from the data how many cooling plants were needed.

The new benefits of the system were that the equipment could be used in a smarter way in each room with the following results:

Time saving
-Do not need to enter data manual

More reliable
-Human error in moving data minimal

Updated data
-Automatic flow of information

More precise data
-No need in use theoretical values in calculation

= A more optimised system
Utilise the equipment smarter in each room
