NCC Sweden, Projsec, White Architects and Tengbom Architects, and building owners such as Örebroporten are some of the BIM ont runners in Sweden.
By implementing new methodologies that enable the creation of a digital twin, their future buildings will be secured in their entire lifecycles and beyond.
One of the methodologies that enable the stakeholders, consultants and partners in such construction projects is the BIMeye cloud solution.
BIMeye is the equivalent of a project portal for document management, only not based on files and documents, but on data from assets (building parts). In a safe, speedy and easy to access common data environment, partners and stakeholders can contribute and withdraw updated real-time data, regardless of their roles in the BIM project. The data is synchronized between the design tool and the database.
This allows all project members to access the latest updated and correct information, bringing speed and quality to the construction project.
A central repository of digital data
It is a carefully managed central repository of digital data to service BIM-process driven building projects.
BIMeye also provides support for BIM level 3 (integrated BIM and Lifecycle Management). BIM level 3 is the only level at which to perform BIM if you want to be able to obtain all the “values” stated around BIM.
The Digital Twin: BIMeye as the missing link
The frontrunners in implementing BIM have discovered they need a strategy for information delivery for their BIM projects. BIMeye keeps track of the graphical data and connects this to their preferred BIM Design tool and to their Document Management tool. By this linking the Digital Twin is created.
BIM is People, Process & Technology coming together
The Digital Twin is only achieved when capable people collaborate during all phases in a BIM process and take responsibility to follow defined standards and procedures.
Customer seeing the long-term benefits of BIMeye
According to Jesper Hedlund from Örebroporten, the long-term benefits and ROI of having a digital twin will make the work creating it worthwhile:
Maintenance, searches, reparations, daily service with i.e. bookings everything is much more smooth when you use BIM this way. The technology is in place, we just need a proper structure to make it even more user-friendly.
Even in renovation, the digital twin will be beneficial.
– If ever you would tear down the construction, you can do it more efficiently and systematically, as you have the exact data in the building and how you need to handle these data.
