We were in charge of the implementation of architectural and structural model for the BIM renovation project of a complex in Viale Romania in Rome to transform it into a university campus. The size and complexity of the project of about 5000 square meters led RHL Architecture to the use of the BIM methodology in order to obtain an exact match between the model and compute quantities, with a savings in terms of time and cost of construction.
University campus Fontananuova
Starting from the two-dimensional drawings of the customer, we created the architectural and structural BIM model with a focus on time phases (demolition and new construction) and to the estimated costs of the intervention. Having to use the model for the proper realization of the work in the construction site, the client required us an executive level of detail of all project components and to model technology nodes and construction details.
We made several parametric families starting from the product datasheets used in the project. In this way, the components used in the model were perfectly matching products actually available on the market, making possible an accurate prediction of time and cost of assembly.
The time management of the project was carried out by assigning, to each element of the model, information on the phase of demolition, rebuilding or new construction. This process allowed the client to view and distinguish effectively new interventions by the existing, and to draw up detailed timelines for future construction.
