Smart infrastructures and buildings

Excerpt from the article on the specialist platform

... The presentation by Peter Kaiser, Technical Delegate in the ZVEH, also dealt with planning according to BIM. He himself runs a planning office and reported on his experiences with BIM - which he described as "planning in 5D": In addition to the three spatial dimensions, deadlines and costs are added, which are already defined in the planning phase.

A major advantage of BIM: the different trades plan on the basis of the same database. Possible collisions, for example between the cable route and the ventilation duct, can thus already be recognised and remedied during the planning phase. To ensure this, however, the approach must change: With BIM, there is no longer any planning during construction, but the planning phase must be completed before construction begins.

Peter Kaiser still sees a problem for trades businesses in the fact that various issues surrounding BIM have not been conclusively solved, such as the question of what exactly the business actually has to deliver in a tender that requires BIM. For example, with BIM there are different levels of detail from 100 (geometry only) to 500 - if this is not clearly defined in advance, it could well lead to legal disputes...

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
