Stefanie Grolik, BIM Coordinator at Schmidt Plöcker Architects describes the implementation of BIM on the Stuttgart Cancer Center Eva Mayr-Stihl in Stuttgart, Germany, for which the firm provided the model-based BIM execution planning to service phase 5, as well as overall BIM coordination.
“The radiation clinic is an excellent example of how OpenBIM can help deliver complicated designs in challenging conditions in relatively short timescales. There are various construction tasks for which BIM has become indispensable. Highly technical buildings such as hospitals or special clinics benefit immensely from the digital model: complex specialist planning can be comprehensively integrated, coordinated, and design errors minimized. The designing architect’s office is thus once again becoming the essential project manager in the design, planning, and construction process.”
