Information management forms the foundation for any Smart Port and Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an ideal way to host and interpret all the data that a port generates.
Royal HaskoningDHV adopts BIM principles in every new development; generating detailed and intelligent 3D models of new assets as they are designed, and to harness performance information once in operation.
Instant, interpretable data
A key part of the BIM design process is to manage construction information to benefit all phases of the asset life cycle. Design demands consideration for the ultimate operation of the completed asset and the information that will be needed in its maintenance.
The BIM model helps to critically asses the available data; whether that be operational and maintenance manuals or historical information about a port asset: where it was built, what materials it comprises, when it is due for servicing. This information can be accessed live via a handheld device as an operative moves around the port site.
Extending asset life, reducing risk
Creating a tangible, visual representation helps inform and educate all stakeholders. BIM boosts design capabilities, enables risk reduction and drives savings at every point in an asset’s lifetime.
Royal HaskoningDHV has been working with BIM principles since 2014 and we achieved BIM Level 2 accreditation in May 2018. The efficiencies and shared insights of adopted BIM principles have swiftly embedded the approach into our standard way of working.
