The concept of information modeling is strengthened in the urban development code

03.07.2019

The concepts of information modeling and the classifier of building information are formalized. This was reported to the Stroygazete by the press service of the Ministry of Construction of Russia, adding that President Vladimir Putin had signed the relevant law.

As the deputy head of the Ministry of Construction Dmitry Volkov noted, the absence of the concept of an information model in the legal field was the main barrier to the transition of the industry to information modeling in design and construction. “With the adoption of the law on the implementation of information modeling at all stages of the life cycle of capital construction objects, we have opened the possibility for the market to introduce this technology for objects, including those that are being built for budget money. This is an important step towards digitalization of construction in our country” he stressed.

The press service noted that the introduction of information modeling technology will optimize business processes and reduce risks at all stages of the life cycle of facilities, will help to develop optimal solutions, identify errors in the early stages of design, reduce construction and operation costs, and shorten the terms of work. According to expert estimates, information modeling can provide up to 30% savings during the construction and operation of the facility.

Currently, the ministry is working to create a unified state-sector digital platform, integrated with state information systems to ensure the town-planning activities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and state information systems.

According to the deputy minister, this will ensure, first of all, continuity of information about capital construction objects, will provide an opportunity to algorithmize processes and ensure not only the “seamlessness” of the technological process of design, construction and operation, but also the “seamlessness” of regulating the industry, creating a single information space.

In addition, more than a third of the funds allocated for the applied scientific research required for updating, revising sets of rules and other regulatory technical documents will be spent on research and development of techniques for using information modeling technology at all stages of the object’s life cycle. This, together with measures to support domestic developers, will allow the information model of buildings and structures to be carried out exclusively on domestic software.

The press service recalled that the introduction of information modeling technology in construction is among the priorities of the national project “Housing and urban environment.”
