Digitalization of projects in road construction and civil engineering
How to get maximum benefit from BIM
Digitalization and model-based BIM 5D workflows are driving the industry forward. They also offer enormous potential in road construction and civil engineering. It is crucial that the construction processes are included. This is the focus of the business solution consisting of RIB iTWO (5D) and iTWO civil (CAD).
Data use without media discontinuity
The 3D solids of earthworks or routes are enriched with relevant information about the construction process such as time/dates (4D) and (5D) and costs are passed on without losses during the course of the project. Thus all project phases build on each other intelligently. Disturbing influences can be estimated correctly earlier and you can react quickly to avoid expensive construction delays.
Model-based quantities as the key to successful projects
The key to successful projects often lies in optimized earth mass logistics. The model-based quantity determination of iTWO alone offers measurable advantages because excavation, measurements and invoicing can be created, checked and released digitally throughout the project. An additional plus: the quantities in the model can be assessed particularly transparently and objectively by the client and contractor, even in complicated situations such as earth excavation on slopes.
buildingSMART e. V. is a competence network for BIM and the digitalization of the construction industry. RIB is a long-standing member of buildingSMART e. V. and is involved in defining the IFC Rail and IFC Road standards.
Flexible, open CAD/BIM model integration
for road construction and civil engineering
In civil engineering, the conditions for BIM 5D are already good today. Especially in sewer construction, there are proven 3D data formats available, all of which are supported by iTWO civil. For infrastructure projects in road construction, civil engineering and sewer construction, the format CPIXML* currently offers the largest scope of services. The IFC standard - goal: IFC Road or IFC Infra - will be successively supported and expanded in a practice-oriented manner. Data from CAD systems can be integrated into the project processing. This means that you are always on the safe side with iTWO civil and ITWO 5D.
* CPI = Construction Process Integration, XML = Extensible Markup Language, structured markup language.
Qualified for all BIM requirements
With iTWO civil and iTWO 5D, an integrated model-based solution with all its advantages is also available for road construction and civil engineering. So you are prepared for the requirements of potential clients. According to the "Stufenplan Digitales Planen und Bauen" of the BMVI (Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs), BIM level 1 must be implemented in Germany from the end of 2020 for new federal infrastructure projects to be planned - and large clients also have or are developing similar requirements.
RIB iTWO is the leading project platform for well-known clients. This should make cooperation - beyond a BIM execution plan - technically advantageous.
