Decoding BIM challenges in planning and designing

In India, the BIM software is among the sort after technologies that has gained momentum due to its ability to generate commendable results without compromising on the quality aspect of the desired work. Though the usage of BIM technology is at a nascent stage, the technology brings a completely new gamut of positive prospects to the Indian construction industry. The technology enables complex designs, shapes and calculations that were not possible with two dimensional and conventional drawings. It allows engineers to break through the cliché of designing and gives way to abstract and unconventional structures.

Buro Happold’s India BIM Lead, Sachin Kale, said, “Says Kale, “Our industry is catching up with the utilisation of BIM technology, but it has its fair share of challenges to deal with because of wrong BIM implementation.”

He adds, “Challenges faced by various design teams implementing BIM on the projects are: understanding clients BIM requirements because of very high BIM aspirations expected from design teams, additional level of details asked at the initial design stages and unclear BIM scope; BIM implementation at right stage; lack of knowledge and untrained staff; software limitations on complex geometry; unclear Model Element Authors (MEA); missing information in BIM models; poor quality modelling; lack of coordination; exceptions for using 2D (AutoCAD); and software cost.”

Fire safety in high-rise façade systems

The external wall system (EWS) is made up of the outside wall of a building, including cladding and insulation. Of focus now is the fire safety of such external wall systems in multi-storeyed buildings where fire hazards are considerably higher than low-rise buildings. Main and sub-systems of EWS are to be considered holistically to understand the risk of fire loads created due to the design and materials used in the EWS where fire passive and resistant systems are absent, or lesser in content. External Wall System Components The EWS includes all components such as framing, glazing ..
