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.
