Development partnership for BIM

WOLFF & MÜLLER and BIMsystems are working on a software solution for data management with Building Information Management (BIM).

Building Information Management (BIM) is at the heart of the digitization strategy at WOLFF & MÜLLER: All project participants have access to a central data model with information on the entire life cycle of the building. But managing and organizing the high volume of data can become a challenge for construction companies and specialist planners. WOLFF & MÜLLER and the software company BIMsystems now want to solve this problem: The two Stuttgart-based companies are working together on the cloud-based solution mairen from BIMsystems. The technology makes data management in BIM projects more efficient and easier. "Each partner contributes its know-how to further advance digitization in the construction industry: we our several years of experience with BIM in construction and planning practice, BIMsystems the technical software and IT know-how," says Vukas Pajic, Head of Digitization at WOLFF & MÜLLER. "Together, we are working on practical use cases to optimally meet the requirements of planners and construction companies," says Gregor Müller, managing director of BIMsystems.

 

Save time, reduce costs

The amount of data that has to be maintained, updated and edited in BIM projects is increasing more and more. Especially the subsequent editing of data costs a lot of time. This is often necessary because most BIM projects are implemented as "Open-BIM" projects. This means that architects and specialist planners use the software of their choice to create the models of their specialist discipline. In order to generate a uniform data model for all project participants, the individual specialist models must be brought together via a common exchange format. This is because they cannot be imported into the model until they have a uniform format. This costs a lot of time and increases the error rate. WOLFF & MÜLLER and BIMsystems want to minimize this high administrative and organizational effort with the mairen solution.

Data import and categorization made easy

mairen ties in with two solutions with which all project-related data are already stored at the beginning of BIM planning in a central and web-based location and merged in a data model (corma and waya). With the mairen solution, this data can now be managed efficiently. This allows users to import data models from different software and also information on components or building products from the various manufacturers' databases and link them to the data model without having to rebuild them in advance or merge them via an exchange format. In addition, BIM data can be categorized as needed - for example, components can be digitally sorted and centrally managed as a catalog. This saves time and makes the entire planning and construction process more efficient. In addition to WOLFF & MÜLLER, the real estate company BAUWENS is also involved in the development of mairen .

BIM in every building construction project

WOLFF & MÜLLER has been working with BIM since 2008 and has successively built up the necessary pillars: software, guidelines, processes and - most importantly - people. Since the beginning of 2020, the construction company has been handling every building construction project in the shell construction phase with BIM - if the client wishes, also beyond the shell construction. For this purpose, WOLFF & MÜLLER has defined and further developed so-called BIM use cases. During planning, for example, the clash check with BIM helps to coordinate the work of the planners. In construction preparation and execution, further use cases are added. For example, the Stuttgart-based construction company derives the material quantities for tendering and awarding the various trades from the building data model, creates automated schedules and simulates the construction process. The method is also used to check the target/actual state of the building shell and to document defects.
