Mosgosekspertiza agrees to cooperate with “Etalon-Invest” on BIM technology
Mosgosekspertiza (Moscow State Expert Committee) has signed an agreement with the “Etalon-Invest” company on introduction of BIM technology in the field of designing capital construction projects and expertise.
In addition, the agreement provides for validation of estimated value of construction projects carried by “Etalon-Invest” company, as well as providing a wide range of consulting and educational services.
Mosgosekspertiza is the first expert organization in the country, which started to work with design documentation in 3D-format. To date it has issued more than 10 opinions on projects presented in BIM-models.
“Etalon-Invest” company is one of the first real estate companies which began using BIM technology not only on the design stage, but also during the construction and operation of a constructed facility. Today, all company’s projects are implemented with the use of BIM-technology. This solution was awarded with a special prize of the City Planning Contest of the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation.
As a reminder, Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition.
In the words of Chairman of Moskomekspertiza Vladimir Leonov “BIM tech allows you to automatically track the chain of changes in all sections and quickly update them. Another advantage of such technologies – high quality of project documentation, obtained by automatic checks and elimination of minor inconsistencies”.
