Safer construction through BIM

Safer construction through BIM

BIM-based design improves considerably the safety of a building over its life cycle – from the construction phase to the maintenance of the occupied building. When standards and regulations are defined by programs, inspection and design may in the future be automatic at all phases of work, says Research Scientist  Kristiina Sulankivi at VTT Technical… Continue Reading

Inspiring and healthy indoor environment becomes an important element in competition

Inspiring and healthy indoor environment becomes an important element in competition

Office construction requires balancing in the choppy waters of alteration flexibility, energy efficiency, usability and comfort. RYM’s Indoor Environment Program seeks solutions with which to improve the comfort and health of property occupants in an ecologically sustainable way. At the same time, improvements in productivity are brought about. Continue Reading

Professor Kirsti Lonka: ”Spaces must be designed to hook students on learning”

Professor Kirsti Lonka: ”Spaces must be designed to hook students on learning”

– Rather than teaching facilities, we need inspiring learning environments. Likewise, we no longer talk about educational technology but about novel forms of socio-digital interaction. The space arrangements of schools and universities must get students hooked on learning. As part of the RYM Indoor Environment Program we conduct user-driven multidisciplinary research that produces world-class expertise… Continue Reading

By means of BIM radical improvements to productivity, quality and safety

By means of BIM radical improvements to productivity, quality and safety

The main objective of BIMCON work package was to develop a comprehensive product data management procedure for industrialized construction process that is based on usage of building information model (BIM) for common data management in the supply chains. The general aim was to encourage the construction branch to adopt rapidly ICT in construction supply networks.… Continue Reading

Web technology opens a whole new market for information management

Web technology opens a whole new market for information management

According to latest research, the most practical and productive way to benefit from building information modeling is to combine the process with web technologies based on linked data. Building information modeling and management are no longer considered a process of centralizing all building-related data to a single model but rather a distributed, linked network of… Continue Reading

BIM based management of road networks improves efficiency

BIM based management of road networks improves efficiency

Using Building Information Modelling (BIM) can be divided in three procedures in road maintenance process. First procedure is similar to a typical BIM process when building new infrastructure.  Second one is maintenance sectors’ own model for to handle one maintenance site or even whole road network. The third procedure is to know, how to store… Continue Reading
