The BIM methodology seeks sustainability while building hospitals
Four experts have spoken at the XXXVI National Congress-Seminar on Hospital Engineering of Zaragoza, on this methodology
Implementing the BIM methodology is not always easy. Hence, José Ángel Salanova, managing partner CEO of the BIM Area Manager in Atbim Building Engineering, has given some clues on how to implement the BIM methodology. To do this, you must establish a strategy that, in your case, is the BIM Execution Plan (BEP). That is, a guide document for the project where the use, scope, and objectives should be established; the intervening agents; the level of development of the different elements; the deliverables that the project will have and the standards on which it will be based; the roles of all the agents participating in the project; the coding of elements and families, tables and files; and the processes of information exchange, review and coordination.
Jorge Torrico Liz, deputy director of BIM at Ineco, explained that this methodology means that early decisions are made that affect not only the construction but the operation phase. It also involves the use of digital information in all phases; the improvement of the exchange of information between the participating agents in each phase and between phases; the automation of manual processes; the traceability of information; and transparency.
For his part, Andrew Lopez, director of Validations at Solibri Iberia, has explained his experience with this methodology, since his company has been using it since 1995, something unthinkable for what they are still trying to promote in Spain.
