Stadium renovation

One of the oldest and largest architecture and construction consultancies in the country.
Employing over 500 specialists; owned by local authorities.

The customer has won a major governmental tender for sports facilities reconstruction and design.
All works were to be done using BIM technologies, but the company had only 2D-specialists working in AutoCAD. The customer needed a reliable partner to complete the following scope of work:

  1. Implement BIM technology: corporate BIM training, making a pilot project, on going support;
  2. Help with the reconstruction project of existing stadium that needs to preserve its historic facade and get a new stand roof and get new utility networks.

BIM Machine split the project into 2 parts and executed the following roadmap:
Part 1. BIM technology implementation:
  -Company infrastructure research;
  -Software/Hardware modernization;
  -Infrastructure modernization;
  -Corporate training, The Customer’s employees involved in the project were split into several teams:
       1 architects team training (6 people);
       3 structural designers teams training (3×5 people);
       3 MEP designers teams training (3×8 people, HVAC, plumbing, electrical);
       1 technologists team training (6 people);
  -BIM execution plan (BEP) development;
  -Revit families library creation.
Part 2. Designing process:
  -Integration with in-house designers to made the Stadium project;
  -Creating the model df existing stadium;
  -Using “Phasing” tool to start reconstruction project;
  -Using Tekla Structures to design steel structures of the stand roof;
  -Combining Revit model with Tekla model using Navisworks.

In the face of BIM Machine the Customer got a on-the-field-coach who helped to complete the project and educate the internal team:

  • 350 hours of corporate education and about 50 people trained;
  • 1000 hours of support;
  • 2000 hours of designing was done by the consultants crew (10% of all design time).

  -BIM model with full pack of construction drawings and historic view information;
  -Construction is in progress now, historic facade has been reserved;
  -New roof is under construction.
