Combining multiple disciplines
BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that provides architecture, engineering, and construction professionals the insights & tools to more effectively plan, design, construct, and manage buildings & infrastructure. All components are modelled in 3D with the help of various BIM software and a single database (BIM model) combines information from all disciplines – Architecture, Structure, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Safety (MEPF) etc. This is further used to extract drawings and other information in the form of BOQs, reports, etc. Working in this collaborative environment ensures that the design development happens on the latest information available, for example the MEPF services design happens on the Architecture BIM model which ensures reliability of architectural and structural data. Currently, all the RRTS stations are being designed and developed on BIM platform.
