BIM@ISH – BIM as mediator between worlds

ISH visitors

Building Information Modelling is a topic of major interest in the sector and will also play its part in various areas at ISH 2019 - BIM@ISH offers a comprehensive overview:

  • Get valuable information from practical examples – by experts for experts.
  • Find out about current trends and developments in lectures, workshops and discussions.
  • Get hands-on experience of BIM – from inside, not outside – and gain practical insights.
  • Visit the manufacturers and learn about the latest products – and gain the advantage that knowledge can bring.
  • Meet players from all disciplines – share in the knowledge of the specialists.

BIM@ISH: offers exactly what visitors with an interest in the area need to know – you too, will be able to find just the event you are looking for, tailored to your existing knowledge and your individual requirements.

BIM@ISH – BIM along the value-added chain – planning, building, operating

Organiser: Messe Frankfurt in collaboration with the German Association of the Building Services and Technical Installation Industry (Bundesindustrieverband Technische Gebäudeausrüstung e.V. (BTGA)) and the Association for Automation & Management in Home and Building (Fachverband Automation + Management in Haus + Gebäude) in the VDMA
Location: Hall 10.3 C11

The special show BIM@ISH will be showcasing a holistic approach to the possibilities created through building information modelling (BIM) and demonstrating them along the entire value-added chain: planning – building – operating: from planning or initial management, to prefabrication, to the site depot, the construction site and actual operation, cases of BIM application will be presented, which visitors can experience and in which they can participate.    

The basis of the exhibition will be a 3D and information model – this will serve as a basis for all cases of BIM application presented in the exhibition. Using this prepared model, the individual working stages of the process will be demonstrated in a clearly comprehensible way.

BIM is not just 3D, though! It is the "I" which is important: it is a treasure store of information – information which is there to be used. All participants augment the data, in order to be constantly at the latest status. No BIM author software will be used any longer at the construction site. The aim is to provide tailor-made solutions for augmenting the information, in order that all parties involved in realisation – from prefabrication to site store – may be brought completely on board. Updates of status, augmentation with additional documents, and the capture of construction times are vital data which carry the overall data model forward, thus helping all those involved in the project to achieve a better complete overview.  

The start comes at the "Design and Planning" section, which presents, as a typical example, how to work with a BIM author software and a collaboration solution. This section also serves as project management, in order to provide a coloured visualisation of the project's progress. The reduced sub-models for all following sections are provided at this point.  

The process is continued in the "Prefabrication" section. Excerpts from the overall model are used for prefabrication. Visitors will be shown which possibilities already exist today and what can be usefully obtained in future from this model for the next stage.

At the "Store" section individual building parts are checked in using a QR code, managed and removed again with the support of the model. All status changes are traced centrally.

All these sections lead finally to the next stage, the "Construction Site." Here the visitor will be able to see building parts as they relate to a design construction both in real terms and as a virtual supplement. The information model is augmented with further data: items of documentation, assembly times and status changes – for example, "assembled" or "does not fit."

In conclusion the "Operations" section will demonstrate the possibilities opened up by BIM in maintenance, in computer-assisted facility management (CAFM) and in operation. The solutions so presented can be discussed with experts on the spot.

A central cloud or data cloud will transfer the data so obtained "live" along the value-added chain from A to B and link all sections as a communicative centre. It will be possible to experience a joint collaborative effort at close quarters in and between the process stages.

BIM@ISH will offer its visitors an opportunity to experience ongoing information exchange and the augmentation of information "live." This will apply also to the work which comes downstream after design and planning and which is not model-based. Integration of this information into the central building data is absolutely necessary for BIM to function in the overall workflow.

At all sections of the value-added chain visitors will be able to try out and discuss building information modelling "live": it will be BIM you can get to grips with. Using smartphones or tablets, the individual working stages can be jointly experienced by all interested parties in an essentially active way. Experienced personal contacts will be available for information and discussion.   

BIM@ISH – discussions with the experts

Alongside ‘BIM hands-on’, ISH offers visitors, who have an interest in this area, various opportunities to acquire practical information about Building Information Modelling.

BIM@ISH – Dialogue ‘beneath the Cloud’

Location: Hall 10.3 C11

We invite you to discuss some of the many fascinating topics face-to-face with colleagues and other experts in their fields, to get information, exchange ideas and experiences. In a relaxed atmosphere. we shall get round to discussing many of the individual questions that you may well have asked yourself in the past.

The meeting point is ‘beneath the Cloud’ at the special show BIM@ISH. Discussions will be held in German.
