Intelligent infrastructures and buildings

Excerpt from the article at the Fachplattform

... The presentation by Peter Kaiser, Technical Delegate at the ZVEH, also dealt with the planning according to BIM. He runs a planning office himself and talks about his experiences with BIM - which he calls "planning in 5D": the three dimensions are supplemented by deadlines and costs that are already defined in the planning phase.

A big advantage of BIM: The different trades plan based on the same database. Possible collisions, for example between the cable route and the ventilation duct, can be identified and rectified during the planning phase. To ensure this, however, the approach must change: There is no longer any construction-related planning at BIM, but the planning phase must be completed before the start of construction.

Peter Kaiser still sees a problem for craft enterprises in the fact that various issues relating to BIM are not completely resolved, such as the question of what the company has to deliver in a bidding process that BIM demands. So there is e.g. with BIM different degrees of detail from 100 (geometry only) to 500 - this is not clearly defined in advance, it could well lead to litigation ...

Since time immemorial, people have dreamed this one dream: that of their "own home", the "roof over their head" and later that of their "own four walls".

It is based on the most intimate needs such as protection and care - elementary components of our being and our responsibility for others - of our family and everything that is "dear and dear" to us - are the basis.

But these innermost drives also include characteristics of our life in large communities - cohesion and togetherness on the one hand - prestige, demarcation and individuality on the other.

After the many epochs of architectural history, we are now faced with a completely new dimension - one that incorporates the previously unknown dimensions into the "house": The digital age as a new basic human need - whether private or professional. And this is exactly where we are "at home": we are the specialists for such requirements - we face up to this responsibility. With practical experience like no other, we accompany you in your ideas and dreams - no matter how unusual they may seem. We are "designers" and not "technicians" - always on the lookout for new challenges - in town and country - on mountains or in valleys - in the cold or the desert. With us there is nothing "off the peg".

together with you we develop your projects and realize your dreams.

Or to talk to Julia Engelmann: "Let's write stories together that we'll remember later."

We look forward to it - and to you.

Peter Kaiser
