Metro will be designed only using BIM
From next year, Moscow authorities will only consider subway construction projects implemented using information modeling (BIM) technologies, said Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Policy and Construction Marat Khusnullin.
“Since 2019 we will take projects by metro only in BIM-technologies. This increases the speed, reduces the price of the project, allows you to read its entire life cycle. The most developed cities in the world already use this technology, we will also use it actively in construction as well as in town planning, “he said.
BIM-technologies assume the creation of a computer 3D-model of the future object containing all the necessary information about it. It is assumed that the design using BIM will make it possible to make a more accurate assessment of the cost of the facility and the efficiency of using the funds in construction.
