BIM level of development: LOD 300 both for the project design and the design for electricity, plumbing and mechanical equipment. LOD 300 and LOD 400 for architectural finishing touches to stations.
Client: QATAR RAIL
Purpose of using BIM:
The work executed is a design and build following the FIDIC yellow book adapted by the client. The entire project design was carried out using BIM, with design plans directly taken from the model. This enabled measurements to be controlled from the BIM. BIM was also linked to the work programme (Primavera), enabling the construction process to be planned and verified.
In this case the use of BIM is a condition directly imposed by the contracting client.
