BIM for Surveyors Workshop

Saturday 5 May 2018 and Field Trip "End-to-end BIM at the World’s Largest Airport"  Sunday 6 May 2018

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way how surveyors work, think, collaborate and make money. Using and sharing multidimensional digital representations of buildings are the driving forces for the digitalization of our work. This affects many tasks surveyors and GIS professionals perform, e. g. cost estimation, GIS analysis, engineering surveying, construction work, land management and facilities management. 

Scope of the Workshop:

The Workshop will take place on Saturday 5 May and includes a field trip on 6 May 10:00 - 15:00

The workshop is organised by Christian Clemen, Germany, HTW Dresden


A special thanks to the sponsors for making the event possible.

10:00-15:00       End-to-end BIM at the World’s Largest Airport - Technical Tour
Organisation      Dr. Ozan Köseoglu, iGA - Istanbul New Airport

End to end BIM from design to Facility Management is implemented to the World’s Largest Airport by IGA. Istanbul 3rd airport Project is the world’s largest airport project, the project scope encompasses 4 phases. The first phase includes the construction of 3 runways, the Terminal Building including 5 Piers (1.3 million m2) , a carpark ( 700,000 m2) , TC Tower (5000 m2) and other site support facilities with THY Buildings.

At the end of the completion of all phases, a visionary project will come to life providing 76 million m2 of airport with 6 runways, supporting 3,500 take-offs and landings per day, 200 million passengers a year, and access to 350 worldwide destinations.
BIM at IGA has been the integrative platform between all the related parties in case of design and coordination. The resulting clash-free –ready to manufacture- BIM Model with necessary engineering decisions considering all disciplines is being shared to the site directly by mobile applications. This leads to a more faster and correct application of the coordinated design without any delay and with minimum problems on site. BIM is being used in many other perspectives such as QA-QC, Quantity Surveying, Planning and Project Control, Energy Analysis, Test & Commissioning and Facility Management.

Another breakthrough in IGA is utilizing Site Teams in order to supervise site installations in accordance to the BIM Model, with the help of iPads and BIM360 applications. BIM site team have been working closely with other discipline site responsible and even subcontractors leading them to the correct application. BIM360 layout and compatible robotic total stations are also utilized in the project by BIM Management Team in order to close track the BIM conformity of the site installations.
Since the airport will be operated for 25 years after its completion, not only through the design and construction stages but also during the operation stage, usage of BIM plays a crucial role. Efficiently reaching all the necessary information and resolving of future operational problems related to airport systems during pre-commissioning, commissioning and maintenance stages will be possible with the usage of BIM.
