Good ICT management has become central to a smooth and efficient design and construction process in the vast majority of projects. BIM and digital construction models, in which drawings, specifications and schedules are embedded, reduce errors and help improve collaboration between different disciplines.
At KHR Architecture we can provide guidance on ICT requirements in the programming phase and help with both ICT management and BIM Management.
Are you setting the right ICT requirements in your project?
Our BIM managers take into account every project's specific ICT requirements. Precisely because ICT requirements determine what is delivered and what ICT is used for in the project, we recommend getting advice at the programming stage if you are not an expert in the field yourself. Our ICT specialists have extensive experience and the latest knowledge to help you get the right ICT start for a successful project.
Well-considered ICT requirements and professional ICT management are a good investment for the design and construction phase and can save significant resources in the operational phase.
ICT management in public construction projects
The ICT Regulation imposes a number of requirements on public developers, ranging from digital tendering to the use of digital construction objects and digital ICT coordination. In other words, ICT management plays a key role in making public works projects more efficient.
An ICT manager is responsible for ensuring that the project meets the required ICT requirements, and at KHR our experienced ICT managers offer a deep and broad understanding of the different processes and technologies needed to deliver a project that not only meets the requirements, but also ensures that you get the most value from your ICT work.
Digitised construction processes with BIM management
Design with digital building models is now widely used in the construction industry and is quite indispensable in most projects. We can help you with the ICT management of your project or handle the digital project management as part of a larger package.
By using digital construction models, the design phase becomes more accurate and detailed, both in terms of material consumption, construction solutions and schedules. BIM models also have great potential in terms of time management, quality assurance and coordination between the various specialist contractors during the execution phase.
World's first fully digital hospital building
Haukeland Children's and Adolescent Hospital is the first hospital building in the world to work fully digitally in both design and on site. KHR are architects on this very large-scale pioneering project and have built up extensive experience in working 100% paperless.
As a design office, we have a BIM manager who follows the latest developments and ensures internal training and sparring. We work with programmes such as Revit, Autocad, dRofus, Enscape, Solibri, BIM360, ArchiCAD, Rhino and SketchUp.
Enter the 3D model of your future building via VR glasses
We know from experience that it can be difficult for people without an architectural background to relate to sketches and proposals. By combining 3D models in Enscape, for example, with virtual reality glasses, we can give the client and users access to the designed building. You simply move around the building by steering with a handheld controller and see the rooms in front of you in the VR glasses.
In this way, the BIM model provides a common starting point for a very concrete dialogue that ensures that the building meets the expectations of the client and the users.
