ALLPLAN – BIM SOLUTIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION SITE PLANNING

From residential developments to commercial buildings, industrial plants to bridges and major infrastructure projects, effective construction site planning and management requires knowledge, experience, and precision tools.

With Allplan, you can easily design with accurate terrain models and plan access roads and utilities, check for clashes between site elements, swiftly develop an accurate construction schedule, and even add construction equipment to plan and optimize site layout design. All this is combined with effortless collaboration functionality and powerful tools to quickly obtain precise quantities, efficiently manage changes, and generate as-built BIM models to ensure projects are realized more successfully.

faster* and more accurate generation of detailed construction deliverables for improved planning and scheduling.

* In 3D vs 2D

more efficient* and precise project costing, at earlier stages, with reliable automated quantities and materials take-off.

* Versus manual quantity take-off

increase in planning and design productivity*, with efficient workflows that support improved collaboration, buildability, and quality.

* Using 3D design

DO YOU CONSTANTLY STRUGGLE WITH THE FOLLOWING CHALLENGES?

Terrain Survey

A precise inventory is important before commencing any project planning. As-built documents such as floor plans or cadastral plans, as PDFs or image files, can be used within Allplan as a basis for the planning of conversions or new buildings.
To enable fast evaluation times, Scalypso provides a range of tools for site point cloud surveys and allows the reconstructed 3D elements to be transferred to Allplan via a real-time interface.

Data exchange

Save time in the initial planning phase and start the project successfully, regardless of which software solutions your project partners use. Starting with the simple creation of a 3D model and the import of data with different file formats.
In the BIM process, the model will be available as a master model in IFC format. Of course, models can also be created, supplemented, or modified independently. Allplan supports over 50 file formats so that project data from Revit, Rhino, SketchUp, etc. can be used.

2 \ Modeling
Access roads

In addition to terrain analysis, Allplan can also be used to design access roads to the construction site parametrically. The definition of the geometry of horizontal and vertical axes is intuitive and parametric. The model is recalculated and updated in real time. All plans and reports can then be derived from the road model.

Utilities

Place manholes, sewers and utility lines fully parametrically and adjust them according to the road course. The line and manhole profiles are selected from a library and can also be easily modified later.

Construction site facilities

Construction site objects, such as cranes, different types of construction fences, construction site offices or containers can be flexibly adapted. In this way, well thought-out construction site equipment layout is achieved in the shortest possible time.

Excavation shoring

Precise planning of the excavation shoring is particularly important for inner-city construction and infrastructure projects. Allplan supports this with functions for bored pile and soldier pile walls and ground anchors. As these functions are parametric, changes can be made very easily.

3 \ Model analysis
Crane planning

With the 3D planning approach, you determine the optimal location and configuration of even several cranes on the same construction site to avoid collisions and ensure accessibility to storage and working areas. By combining real crane configurations with model data (e.g. weight), you increase planning reliability and avoid problems on the construction site.
Allplan offers the tower crane functionality with collision detection for this purpose. A capacity check is also possible. In combination with the precast element functionality, you can even generate precast elements taking the crane capacity into account, so that they can actually be lifted with the crane.

Change Management

Powerful collaboration tools enable time-saving detailing of variants for effective change management and rapid generation of accurate site and design requirements.

With Bimplus, you can easily view, compare, adjust and manage models as variants and revisions. Easy-to-generate slideshows are an excellent basis for presentations and decision-making processes in construction meetings.

4 \ Planning and data
Sequence planning

Reliable scheduling is essential to ensure the required adherence to schedules in construction projects. A visual representation of the model phases throughout the entire construction process provides an excellent basis for cross-team collaboration. This is achieved with Allplan by integrating Microsoft Project via the open collaboration platform Bimplus.
