Cordeel wins BIM-Award at the Belgian Construction Awards 2021

On Thursday 10 March, Cordeel was awarded at the Belgian Construction Awards 2021. In the category BIM Industrial Tertiary & Residential Project, the office building Networks NØR, built by Banimmo, won the first prize.

In a prime location in the heart of Brussels, the Networks NØR office building, commissioned by Banimmo, has undergone a complete refurbishment to meet the requirements of a passive office building, as well as the latest HVAC and ventilation requirements and guidelines. The architecture, based on a glass facade with multiple reflections and sloping bay windows, and the integration of a double-height entrance give the project a completely contemporary look.

We developed this unique renovation project integrally in an OpenBIM collaboration, bringing together all discipline models into a single coordinated 3D BIM model in order to then carry out interface checks, model checks and issue management in accordance with the current BIM implementation plan. In addition to the geometry, the BIM model also received the necessary building element information during the various project phases, which was contributed by the project partners during the project and used to realise the project as an as-built model. In order to be able to set up the BIM model correctly, it was decided, prior to the engineering, to have a 3D laser scan of the existing situation. This provided a point cloud that was used as a basis for creating the BIM model. The end result is a comprehensive as-built model accurate to a few millimetres, which we validated on site during the construction phase using a Robotic Total Station. The as-built model was even used as input for the Robotic Total Station to plot the building on site.
