BIM reflects a smartly built environment. A smart building is not only equipped with smart technology, but is planned, designed, constructed, and managed in a transparent and efficient way, resulting in an increased economic value for stakeholders. BIM is an essential pillar for reaching future goals of smartness and sustainability, raising living standards, higher work productivity, prime energy efficiency, and a truly intelligent environment to the global world.
At TÜV SÜD, we understand that each client has different requirements hence our solutions are customised to each project from the onset. From planning and design to implementation and operation, our experts provide assistance throughout the digital lifecycle management of your building. We are uniquely capable of offering auditing, testing, certification, and consulting solutions for all your evolving real estate and infrastructure needs.
With our experts’ 360° view, we understand the requirements of a building from ‘Stage 0’ onwards, and can deliver strategic roadmaps, design services and training, while ensuring the security, reliability, and interoperability of your project to prepare you for the journey ahead.
To comply with the multi-knowledge necessity of BIM, TÜV SÜD has set up a Centre of Competence and organised teams to provide comprehensive BIM solutions throughout the lifecycle of a building. TÜV SÜD provides interdisciplinary solutions to guarantee that BIM is applied with a long-term view and the intent of maximising return on investments for building owners and asset holders.
BIM Strategy & Implementation Consultancy
Before investing into BIM, we must establish the overall goal, feasibility and applicability of BIM for your business. We create a BIM strategy focused on a fast Return-on-Invest and based on clear use cases. With the following correct technical and organizational BIM implementation by TÜV SÜD engineers and technology experts, your BIM project is ready to go.
Our experienced design teams are capable of executing BIM design across all internal processes. Streamlining internal processes reduces overall project time, while collaborative work and clash detection reduce design and construction defects. Our teams also use technical simulations to optimise layouts and processes such as fire and emergency simulation or dynamic flow simulations.
BIM Management & BIM Audits
BIM is more than just software – it is an alternate approach that requires a change in process and involves high-level management functions. Our BIM Manager takes over management mandates and steers the BIM processes under the terms of your business, ensuring that standards and roadmaps are followed and personnel are trained. The goal is to integrate best-practice BIM know-how for a successful BIM implementation. As external auditors, our experts may also assess your status-quo regarding strategy, implementation (cost, quality) and internal BIM processes.
Equipping designers with the right tools to be at the forefront of the BIM evolution is essential. Our training program covers basic BIM fundamentals, uses case studies to teach real-life advantages and challenges, provides insight into legal and contractual guidelines, and instructs the application of design tools.
The operation phase of a building is the longest period of its lifecycle. We explicitly highlight the necessity of accounting for this phase, from early stages onwards. Our experts consult on interface establishment from BIM to CAFM systems, and develop an ‘operating concept of the future’ tailored to each business’ needs that integrates modern technology into the processes of BIM via sensors, data analytic systems, and platform applications.
