Company: China Construction Design International (CCDI)
Industry: Architecture, Engineering & Construction
With more than 2,000 employees and offices throughout the People’s Republic of China, China Construction Design International (CCDI) is one of Asia’s leading multidisciplinary design firms. CCDI has delivered comprehensive, fully integrated architectural, engineering, and construction solutions on some of the most high-profile projects in the world.
With the international cruise terminal at the Dongjiang Port Zone in Tianjin, the sixth-largest urban area in China. CCDI used Autodesk BIM solutions throughout the entire project—from conceptual design and design development through construction documentation and coordination.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) helped the structural engineers more quickly received feedback about the complex spatial relations that existed among building components, helping them to design with higher levels of accuracy, precision, and coordination. CCDI used BIM for a variety of tasks, including design, simulated population flow analyses, sunlight studies, collision detection, and quantity takeoffs.
CCDI reduced coordination errors, leading to faster project completion, fewer last-minute design changes, and greener projects.
