BIM has been introduced and used in Civil engineering projects. Some examples follows below.
OPEN BIM Sweden informs about the use of BIM in the automation process for tools and machinery in civil works.
Simulation, excavation, precasting and method evaluation
This movie also shows how BIM can be used to simulate the impact of temporary works (as construction works is) to the surroundings and nearby buildings.
Mass excavation – safety training
Excavation has always been a risk factor in construction and civil works. Planning the process and handling vehicles and masses is important skills. By vusailisation the process can become safer regarding slopes, masses and the impact on nearby constructions as well as the safety of the workers at the site.
