The architect company A-lab solved a complex construction with BIM

A-lab

Advanced BIM modeling made it possible to construct a 65.000/117.000 m2 commercial building complex, the Statoil building at Fornebu, Norway, in only 20 months on site.

Thanks to thorough planning, advanced BIM-modeling and a fruitful solution-oriented dialogue, the team behind the realisation of this project - the client and owner, construction companies, all subcontractors and last but not least the architects from A-Lab along with their trusted BIM advisors from Symetri, were able to complete the complex design of the Statoil construction on schedule. Initially, when the A-Lab team started designing and planning the Statoil building, it was still in the early days of BIM management. However, the BIM manager and architect at A-Lab, Angie Arroyo Mendez, saw no other way than to start working with BIM using IFC.
