BIMsummit Estonia 2021 focuses on InfraBIM

BIMsummit Estonia, Estonia’s largest conference focusing on BIM and digital construction, will take place for the fifth time on 11 March. For the first time, the focus is on digital construction in the field of infrastructure. The conference highlights developments in the field in Estonia and the wider world and shares the most salient topics and most illuminating experiences of practitioners.

Reaalprojekt OÜ has an important role in the development of Estonian InfraBIM. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the company offers a full range of infrastructure design services and has helped implement more than 1000 projects over the years. Among them are several projects that rely on InfraBIM principles. Reaalprojekt OÜ chairs the InfraBIM working group of the Digital Construction Cluster.

In terms of engineering design, this is the largest project in Estonia in which BIM is used for modelling both roads and buildings. The outdoor parts of the quarter – roads and utility clearances and networks – were designed by Reaalprojekt. BIMsummit Infra 2021 At the web conference, the head of the company’s project department Taavi Sadam will share Reaalprojekt’s experiences with the implementation of BIM and the engineering work performed in Kvartal. 

BIM is used to produce an integrated model for conflict detection and information management throughout the building lifecycle. BIM design is becoming the new design standard, which will replace the usual drawing on paper with 3D information models.

InfraBIM is a process developed for the design, construction and management of infrastructure, where an information-rich 3D model is at the heart of the entire process. 3D modelling allows the creation of a visual model, the analysis of possible conflict points in the structure, the detection of design errors and the comparison of different options and their costs. It is also possible to generate 2D drawings and rapidly develop several technical versions of the project. 3D modelling also helps in administering the road maintenance information system.
