High Tech BIM Solutions: Exploring Pinnacle's Services at Lusail Stadium

Country: Qatar

Lusail Stadium has been in the voices all across the globe for a well-known reason, i.e., FIFA World Cup. It is the hosting ground for the finale and numerous knockout matches, along with the semi-final between Argentina & Croatia. 

A small portion of the world has any idea about who built it. That stadium has been constructed, designed, and modeled by an Indian BIM giant named Pinnacle Infotech Solutions, which is 31 years old AEC solutions provider colloquially known for its Building Information Modeling solutions.

Let us check what different services Pinnacle has served in constructing this enormous ground with 93,000 gross capacity.

Services, Offered by Pinnacle In Lusail

Pinnacle has rendered its expertise in operations and management of the entire construction work there, including-

  1. Engineering and Coordination

  2. Design & Optimization

  3. Interface and Scope Management

  4. BIM-Centric Project Controls

  5. Progress Monitoring

  6. Contracts and Commercial Valuations 

Not just that, but Pinnacle has worked even for the nerves of the stadium by having prepared more than 35,000 Shop drawings for it, with 1400+ BIM models & 20,000 as-built drawings, which are unprecedented numbers for the company itself concerning any other project it ever served for. This project is termed ‘iconic’ for a reason, as it asked for more than eight thousand official submissions and three thousand plus data sheets (schedules) to complete.

There were multiple BIM Services also that Pinnacle offered to this iconic project, including-

  1. Laser Scanning

  2. Site Logistics Layouts

  3. 4D Sequencing and Simulation

  4. Digital Fabrication

  5. Digital Prototyping and Mock-Ups

  6. BIM 360 GLUE

  7. BIM 360 FIELD

  8. COBie Data Sheet

  9. 5D QTO, etc.

Additionally, there has been a digital handover of the entire project in compliance with the asset management (220k assets) and COBie Extractions that will save its maintenance cost shortly. Asset tagging, QR code labeling, and Asset Information Model delivery are also parts of the Building Information Modeling. 

How Did Pinnacle Manage with The Challenges?

The organization uploads Project Profiles for every project they complete. The respective profile of Lusail Stadium available on their official website talks about some challenges, including-

  1. On-time delivery and the high-end finishing required by the client 

  2. Management of 10 Tower cranes during construction

  3. Delivering 1400+ BIM models with a greater accuracy level of LOD 500, etc.

Pinnacle’s experienced engineers and architects have managed such complex conditions in a pretty professional and responsible manner. They mentioned the precise modeling they have done to quantify the material requirements. Also, they managed full logistics planning through BIM according to the various project stages that helped them smoothly manage the Tower cranes during construction.

IFC documentation and its review were done using a BIM walk-through to identify the design and construction issues with all the stakeholders. Moreover, a proper BIM execution plan, MIDP, and 300 BIM professionals were there to manage and face the challenges professionally.

The team has delivered not only 1400+ BIM models but also 35000+ Shop drawings for 30 different disciplines within the expected period, which is a significant achievement for the company itself, as mentioned in their project profile.
