Bim-technologies will allow to create a safe and comfortable urban environment
Information modeling technologies or BIM technologies are one of the key areas of work today in the field of digitization of the construction industry. With the help of new technologies, it is planned to significantly increase labor productivity in the construction industry and create a comfortable urban environment in Moscow. This was stated in an interview by the Chairman of Moskomexpertiza Valery Leonov.
“BIM technologies help to systematize and streamline a huge amount of data, make it easy to navigate, and even automate some processes. To date, regulations and requirements have been developed, basic software solutions have been formed, which allow testing the obtained developments at realizing construction projects. If we talk about the obvious advantages, then in general, a safer and more comfortable environment will be created for residents and guests of the capital. All of this will generally increase Moscow’s rating among the smart cities of the world, which will improve not only its image, but also its investment attractiveness”, Valery Leonov said.
The Chairman stressed that the development and introduction of new technologies is always a painstaking process that takes time. And to start work in Moscow with the use of these technologies is immediately impossible.
“Construction is a multi-level and responsible process. Every year more and more projects come to Mosgosexpertiza, which include the BIM-model, but while the requirements for its formation have not been approved at the legislative level, experts consider the relevant section only as additional information to the main package of project documentation. Countries that have been using BIM technologies for several decades have been continuously modernizing information systems and software solutions, updating documentation and introducing more and more new parameters to it, since this is directly related to the dynamic development of science and technology. Therefore, it is impossible to translate the domestic construction industry into fundamentally new methods of work overnight, and it does not make sense, because to achieve the desired results, you need to act in the same way with all participants in the life cycle of construction projects”, said Valery Leonov.
Earlier, the Ministry of Construction of Russia has identified pilot projects for the implementation of which will apply information modeling technology. The bill, enshrining the concept of information modeling in construction, will be adopted by the end of 2019.
