Technological progress is always considered very important in our enterprise and is part of our company philosophy

Model-Oriented Project Processing in the Field of Electrical and Communications Technology

DITZINGEN,  June XX 2015. With the iTWO 5D software from RIB, Raible + Partner GmbH & Co. KG wants to build up a thoroughgoing, model-oriented planning process within the company. What is planned is the model-based processing of a medium-sized construction project with RIB software and the CAD system established in the firm for building technology. On this basis, according to the management, an integrated BIM process is to be developed in the engineering office to plan electronics and communications technologies. The goals for this new working method are improved time management and increased cost security with optimized planning quality.

Wolfgang Bauer, managing director of Raible + Partner on model-oriented planning and construction: “Technical progress is always considered very important in our enterprise and is part of our company philosophy. In individual fields of work, for example in routing, we have already had very good experiences with 3D geometric models. We want to extend these model-based project processing methods in a logical fashion.”

The iTWO 5D software from RIB offers the opportunity to input 3D geometric models via specified plug-ins. The key is to test whether in every planning phase – from pre-planning to billing – integration of CAD models and project and cost management information needs to be implemented. RIB offers quality-assured plug-ins for established 3D CAD programs for building technology planning. When using other CAD systems, data exchange via the open IFC standard (Industry Foundation Classes) is also possible.

With its model-oriented working method, Raible + Partner is ensuring for itself the optimum integration of technical information in architectural plans and thus improved cost security and adherence to schedule for its clients. For this pilot project, the company initiated a comprehensive test phase with the RIB software iTWO 5D.

Raible + Partner GmbH & Co. KG, with a subsidiary in Ditzingen, values modern technology and future-oriented solutions for its clients. The company employs 90 members of staff at   five locations across Germany.
