Mostostal Warszawa in cooperation with BIMvision

The buildingSMARTAward 2021 final is coming soon!

On August 22, the list of finalists was announced, and the final will be resolved during the buildingSMART 2021 virtual summit, which brings together specialists from the construction industry in the development and use of international standards and solutions. The finalists’ presentations will take place on October 4-6. The ceremony itself, during which the winners will be announced, will take place on October 7.

Finalists from over 130 applications were nominated in 8 categories: Asset management, Construction, Design, Facility management, Handover, Professional research, Student research and Technology. The finalists in the CONSTRUCTION category include:

  • China Academy of Railway Sciences Corporation Ltd – “openBIM implemented on construction of Beijing-Zhangjiakou high speed railway” – China.
  • Helse Bergen HF – “Haukeland University Hospital” – Norway.
  • Mostostal Warszawa SA – “Make it easier with openBIM” – Poland.
  • Sweco Norge – “Randselva Bridge” – Norway.

The subject of the presentation of Mostostal Warszawa SA “Make it easier with openBIM” submitted to the competition in buildingSMARTAward 2021, which led the company to the finals, was construction of a primary school in Warsaw’s Wilanów completed in 2020. The school is designed for 750 students. It has a separate sports hall and a garage building in colored concrete with a multifunctional pitch with an artificial surface on the roof. As part of the project, the adjacent areas with access roads were developed and the necessary technical infrastructure was implemented.

All activities related to the implementation of the project were based on openBIM and work on open buildingSMART Poland standards.

BIM tools were used to perform take-offs, inter-branch coordination and implement a digital platform for managing documentation and processes related to implementation. This provided Mostostal Warszawa’s team with reliable and precise information regarding the quantity of materials such as reinforced concrete, masonry and plaster. The use of IFC on the construction site allows the use of simple tools that make daily work faster and more effective. Basing on BIM models made it possible to conduct inter-branch coordination, which allowed to avoid many collisions generating additional costs and improved cooperation with designers. The take-off from the models allowed to save 75% of time and was the basis for subsequent settlements with subcontractors.

The presentation of the finalists in the CONSTRUCTION category will take place on October 5. We keep our fingers crossed for the success of the finalists and we congratulate them.
