In the area of the Smíchov City Jih a Sever project, the developer of which is Sekyra Group, we are designing 4 large buildings. We use the advantages of 3D design for all of them and the BIM method directly for two of them.
This BIM process helps us make our projects better. It might seem that BIM is just about using some one of the right software, but it’s so much more – it’s the whole process and the way of designing.
We have to use many different software for such a large-scale project. Autodesk Revit is the basic software for creating BIM models. However, because no SW can do everything perfectly, the following SWs were used for other work such as coordination, collision control, merging large IFC models of the whole territory and working with 2D data, etc.: Autodesk Navisworks Manage, Autodesk AutoCAD Plan 3D, Autodesk AutoCAD, BIMcollab ZOOM.
Of course, the BIM process cannot lack the use of CDE, which brings not only the management and exchange of project data but also the possibility of easy cooperation for all subcontractors even without these specialized desktop tools. Here we had to use two CDE tools Autodesk BIM360 Docs and Dalux BIM Viewer +, also because each of them has different advantages (data management vs. working with models).
