International airport, Abu DhabiCollaborationIFC files from other disciplines were utilised for concrete, MEP, cladding and facade etc. Rhino3D model used for secondary steelwork setting out.BIM implementation played a leading role to reduce the project time and increased the productivity in overall terms. 3D BIM files received from other trades like Concrete, MEP, Roof Cladding, Faade & BMU were imported into Tekla and checked against the physical clashes in the model. Prevented many issues that might have happened on the siteInnovative use of TeklaBespoke tool for creating a unique ID for exported files




Industrial projectsThe design and construction of buildings are serving industry. Building project types: factory, power plant, mill, drilling rig, warehouse



Porvoo Oil Refinery, Finland


Porvoo Oil Refinery, FinlandSubmitted by A-Insinrit OyConstructabilityThis model has steel, concrete and reinforcement, the transition of the connection between the Steel and Concrete is detailed to enable site construction. CollaborationMany reference models have been used, the main aspect being the old structure which was imported to coordinate the building and connection with the new. Topographical models were also imported to coordinate with site works for clearing the groundThe piping and equipment were also imported for clash detection as well as structural layout coordination.23


Porvoo Oil Refinery, FinlandInnovative use of Tekla Plans, elevation drawings created from the Tekla modelAll fabrication data for steel and precast were taken from the model for accurate and JIT (just in time) construction


Miscellaneous This project is a true reflection on how BIM should be utilised, the Industrial construction companies have been using a BIM methodology for many years. This project shows how all disciplines can combine models for coordination and follow that through into the fabrication and construction. Thus saving time and money with no lengthy drawing approval times slowing the process.

Infrastructure projectsBasic physical structure needed for the operation of a society. Building project types: bridges, tunnels and other non-occupied structures.[Date]Presentors name29

TP 30 - Railway Bridge, Denmark30


TP 30 - Railway Bridge, DenmarkSubmitted by 3DSD and CN3 DenmarkConstructability BIM model (LOD 500) containing steel and concrete geometry, reinforcement, cast in embeds and temporary structuresComplex composite structureInnovative use of Tekla Innovative construction documents5D interface to follow economic impact of design choicesDirect data transfer to cut and bend machineryRebar cages were pre-assembled at factory using Tekla BIMsight visualizations31


TP 30 - Railway Bridge, DenmarkCollaboration / BIM AspectClose collaboration between 3DSD (steel design) and CN3 (concrete design)Model was created in detailing phase and utilized in fabrication and construction MiscellaneousAll steel shop drawings were produced with Tekla Structures32


Isois Bridge Finland 33Submitted by Isois bridge project groupConstructabilityObjective has been to utilize the building information model instead of drawings in the procurement and construction of the projectAll steel and concrete structures were modeled, including reinforcing bars and similar details

The contractor used the model to maintain the construction schedule up-to-date, including steel structure design, fabrication and assembly, as well as general project timetable as well as quality objectives



Isois Bridge Finland Collaboration / BIM AspectBIM-based data transfer has been maximized and the amount of paper documents minimized during constructionDuring estimation, an accurate and realistic model enabled model-based bidding requests.All quantities were extracted from the model so that the project owner was able to commit based on correct informationSteel fabrication drawings were produced directly from the already detailed model delivered by the structural designer without further input data in drawing format34



Isois Bridge Finland Innovative use of Tekla The architects geometry model created by the functioned as the source data for structural designSteel structure was modeled containing the coordinate points for elevationThe team also modeled earthworks, temporary excavations and landfills, street infrastructure and piping, and the wells of the area in Inframodel format


When scaffoldings were modelled the conflicts with actual structure was noticed. These conflicts had not been noticed at the draft stage



Isois Bridge Finland MiscellaneousA combined shared model was published based on the design model and street model and it was available to use by the designer, project owner and contractorIn all, using the model data in the project has been a great benefit, reducing surprises and contradictions as well as enhancing the accuracy of quantity and length measurements as the project progresses. This was realized as significant cost savings in the project36



Sport and RecreationalThe design and construction of buildings are serving sport or recreational. Project types: stadium, sprot track, sport centre or other sport related.37

The Opera house at Downtown Dubai


Submitted by Eversendai Engineering LLCConstructabilityThe main roof has complex design in the way the architectural surface was formed, whilst minimizing the number of trusses and bracing, to allow sufficient roof lighting and to accommodate the MEP ventilation louvres.The design is incorporating Dubais maritime history with an Arabian dhow becoming the inspiration behind the architecture of the building.

42The Opera house at Downtown Dubai

CollaborationUtilising BIM models for reference from other disciplines allowed the fabricators overcome the 3D curvature of the roof structure, to allow for the connections and also the supplementary elements such as gutters, facade supports, cladding soffits etc.


Innovative Use of TeklaThe Tekla model was used to send information to the Acoustic engineering company who were able to advise on the maintenance structures for the running of the venue.

Mutant Trees, Canada45



Submitted by Apex Structural DesignConstructabilityWithout use of a 3D model this project would have been extremely difficult to fabricate, the model allows the fabricators to measure from all critical pointsCollaborationSketchUp files imported to Tekla for clarification of bought in parts for liftingThe project was supplied without drawings, a 3D model was the design intentThis project was unique in the sense that the client did not supply drawings. Instead we were provided with artist renderings and a BIM model from the studios design team. This model consisted of only the exterior surface but allowed us to easily locate and model the hundreds of work points required to layout the surface plates.

Mutant Trees, Canada46



Mutant Trees, CanadaInnovative use of TeklaUse of the Tekla API to develop a tool to pick up work points Tool created for handling the surface plates Although the total number of fabricated parts was less than 650 it took over 6000 objects to complete the model detailing.MiscellaneousThis project did not start from 2D drawings, a 3D model was supplied and the modelling team had to build the internal structure from the exterior surface.8 50ft trees in total planted within a woodland, with LED lighting to show the trees structure
