Applus+ implements the use of BIM methodology for supervision of construction works in technical assistance contracts

18/03/2020

    Applus+ has started to implement Business Information Modeling (BIM) methodology in its construction supervision work. BIM is a collaborative work methodology for setting up and managing a construction project. It encompasses the execution of the whole project and extends throughout the life cycle of the construction, facilitating its management and reducing its operational costs.

    In the Adif contract for consultancy and assistance with the supervision of the construction works of the railway platform on the following sections: railway integration in the El Puche zone (Almería) and Río Andarax – El Puche, and the Murcia-Almería section of the high-speed Mediterranean corridor, we will be using BIM as a tool to monitor the works in real time.

    All the information gathered during the works is integrated into the compilation and submission of the weekly or monthly execution and quality monitoring reports, reflected in plans, diagrams and details. Applus+ is one of the first companies to implement this efficient technology in a project. BIM allows us to reduce uncertainty for clients, bringing a higher level of reliability, precision and control to the process of design and construction, and making it possible for projects to be more sustainable from a social, economic and environmental point of view.
