“Building Information Modeling is a key technology offering continuous value added throughout the entire construction value chain. As one of the industry’s trailblazers, we are especially pleased to be able to showcase our knowhow in the application of this highly promising approach to the digital management of projects”, said Karl-Heinz Strauss, CEO of PORR.
The basis for the project is an open procedure with bids above a certain threshold and the compulsory use of Building Information Modeling methods. Taken together, this is the most modern way of managing a public tender. PORR has been relying on Building Information Modeling for many years. BIM gives users a complete and holistic view of every relevant aspect of a project.
Another advantage: everyone involved in the project – from the awarding authority to any subcontractor – works with the same model. This means that design aspects and dimensions do not stand alone but are instead always viewed in context over the project’s entire lifecycle.
