BIM project for construction and infrastructure


The course is a follow-up to the BIM course and is project-based oriented. In the course students are introduced to real-life AECO project (Architecture, Engneering, Construction, Operation) contributed by design, consultant and/or construction contractor companies. Depending on the nature of the availbale projects (building, infrastructure, as-designed, as-built), the project documentation is first analysed and proper BIM approach is defined. In the next phase the BIM approach is applied either to new or existing BIM models (from previous courses). The work always considers a federated BIM approach with use of a BIM server. Students work in groups to focus on specific sub-models that at the end integrate to a complete BIM model.



  •  Digital data for building and infrastructure object projects (digital terrain model, ortho-photos, digital model of the city, clouds of 3D points).
  • Technical specifications and BIM standards for infrastructure objects (LandXML, OpenINFRA, IFC (ifcBridge, ifcRoad)).
  • BIM software for infrastructure objects (BIM tools for parametric modeling infrastructure: Autodesk Infraworks, Civil 3D, Navisworks, Subassembly Composer, programming (if necessary).
  • BIM software for building objects (BIM tools for parametric modeling of buildings: Autodesk Revit, ArhiCAD, Ecotec, Infraworks, MS Project, Navisworks, Rhino / Grasshoper).
  • BIM Project: design and implementation of BIM model for buildings and/or civil engineering (infrastructure) objects. Projects are obtained in collaboration with industry.
