Thanks to complex software programs, large building projects can now be visualised through 3D models long before their completion. Building information modelling revolutionised planning and marketing in the construction sector in the late 1990s. But what if we could expand this digital plannability by another two key dimensions? This is exactly where our new 5D planning models come in. They add the key factor ‘costs’ and ‘time’ to the digital presentation.
The innovative building data model enables transparent and detailed illustration of required material volumes at any time as well as a projection for capacity planning. Even costs for alternative variants or change requests can be accessed quicker – a key requirement for the necessary cost transparency and cost security.
We firmly believe that BIM/5D will shape the future of construction – and we are already laying the foundations today.
