BIM to help in event organisation
When extensive public events are organised in the area, a number of parties are involved in the planning. This project is developing a visual application based on the information model of construction to facilitate project management.
What kind of problem is the project trying to solve?
Project management is widely required when new construction is carried out in an area and the infrastructure of the area changes – or when extensive public events are organised in the area. A number of parties are involved in the planning and as a result, the communication and management of information may be challenging.
This experimental project aims to improve information management involving a large number of parties and to clarify the flows of information. This can be done best with a concrete collaboration model.
In the project, we test how regional models and BIMs (Building Information Models) can be used as a basis for planning a collaboration model for an area that is undergoing a change in the way it is used, around which new constructions are built, in which the infrastructure is changing or in which extensive public events are organised. A BIM (Building Information Model) is a three-dimensional, digital data model of a building that contains data on the building throughout its entire life cycle.
Objective: an application for project management in a changing area and events
The project is aimed at creating an easy-to-use browser-based service concept and a prototype of a visual application. It would be a concrete cooperation platform – a kind of 3D map for streamlining the data management related to an event or construction. The aim is better cost efficiency, safety and risk management in events and building production.
The application makes it possible to also move in the space virtually. The application can be used in the prevention of noise and environmental problems, in the planning of safety, fire and rescue measures and in the advance technical planning of the movements of audiences, restaurant services and light and sound.
Organisers of events and people who work in events, people involved in regional building and infrastructure in their work.
