This session examines 2 recent advances in BIM in the field of geotechnics. The first case study relates to the sharing of site-generated data, that is gathered electronically on-site, processed, and then uploaded to the BIM model, all automatically. In this way the stakeholders are seeing the object attributes updated in the integrated model in real time as the work is done. The advantages of this process include the obvious savings in time and effort, avoiding mistakes, self-certification, and the manifest openness that supports collaboration.
- Transfer construction data from site to a BIM model automatically
- Use the BIM model as a gateway to live monitoring data
- Consider BIM as a tool for collaboration
- Understand the BIM challenge for the supply chain
