BIM – Engineering and work preparation

Simulation of construction processes to be prepared for all incidents.

Construction process planning is THE know-how of construction companies. Up to now, it´s been the project managers' experience that has been taken into account in planning, but not all factors relevant to the construction process. In contrast, Building Information Modelling is based on the motto: "No (little) improvisation on the construction site". This is achieved by creating a digital twin in a digital world that is as close to reality as possible, in which the optimum construction method in terms of deadlines and costs is simulated by testing various procedures.

Visualised are i.e.:

  • Construction processes with people, equipment, material and traffic
  • Objects and their installation states
  • Safety instructions and hazardous areas related to the construction site


In construction process simulation, individual work stages and mutual effects are linked with one another. Further on in the simulation, the processes can be optimised. By analysing the entire spectrum, such as roadway systems, logistics, construction processes, resource requirements and machine technology, we are able to make optimal decisions based on data and visualisation. This data model successively structures knowledge and allows information to flow back into the calculation and continuous optimisation of processes.

The simulation of the construction process enables us to detect and understand collisions at an early stage. In this way, cost-intensive misplanning can be detected and avoided. Our goal is to increase efficiency on the construction site.

Visualisations from the construction process can also be used for internal and external communication and thus contribute to improving the soft supply factors.

Advantages of construction process planning with BIM:

  • Transparent presentation to the customer
  • Evaluation of the ideal construction process
  • Greater cost certainty
  • Fewer disturbances which enables higher quality
  • Systematisation of knowledge in the organisation which makes better staff training possible
  • Higher probability of winning the tender
