Allplan Project Template enables BIM-compliant Design of Engineering Structures
Free download of the template available now
Munich, April 13, 2022 - ALLPLAN and the Autobahn GmbH des Bundes, Southern Bavaria Branch, have jointly developed a comprehensive project template for the BIM-compliant design of engineering structures. Allplan users are thus able to develop engineering structures in accordance with these modeling guidelines right from the start, thereby achieving high data quality from the very beginning. The template is now available for download free of charge for all ALLPLAN customers.
Since 2020, it has been mandatory to design infrastructure projects using the BIM method. For engineering companies, this results in the urgent question of how they can meet the new requirements for engineering structures as efficiently as possible. After ALLPLAN already developed a project template for the BIM-compliant planning of station plattforms together with DB Station & Service AG, the Nemetschek subsidiary is now going one step further: In close cooperation with Autobahn GmbH des Bundes, Southern Bavaria Branch, ALLPLAN has now also developed a comprehensive project template for engineering structures.
"The BIM methodology is becoming increasingly important in road construction because it forms the basis for consistent implementation of digitization throughout the entire life cycle," says Prof. Dr. Uwe Willberg, Business Unit Manager Bridges and Civil Engineeringfrom the Autobahn GmbH des Bundes Southern Bavaria Branch. High-quality BIM content ensures the qualitative application of the BIM methodology. "We are therefore pleased that all construction models processed with the project template created by ALLPLAN technically meet our requirements and standards," Prof. Dr. Uwe Willberg continues.
Focus on alphanumerics and "intelligence”
A special focus of the project template is on the alphanumerics as well as intelligent objects. This allows the design process to be optimized in order to ensure comprehensive evaluation, documentation and further use of the data. For this purpose, the project template contains special features for the classification and attribution of components, which are specifically adapted to the specifications of the Autobahn GmbH des Bundes, Southern Bavaria Branch, and considerably accelerate the workflow in this regard. Access to the complete range of modeling tools in Allplan (components, free modeling, Allplan Bridge, etc.) remains unrestricted.
BIM-compliant building models
The BIM-compliant building models generated by means of the project template can be evaluated internally with numerous reports according to a wide variety of aspects and can also be transferred to the Autobahn GmbH des Bundes, Southern Bavaria Branch, in accordance with specifications via predefined exchange profiles. For this purpose, the template contains, among other things:
- a building structure adapted to infrastructure projects
- a catalog of attributes adapted to the requirements of civil engineering
- Wizards and attribute favorites for direct transfer of all object parameters
- Reports and labeling images for various evaluations and plan creation
- Exchange profiles for easy data transfer
A comprehensive guide with numerous illustrations clearly describes working with the project template as well as the individual workflows for attribution, evaluation and transfer. Tables and overviews in the appendix also provide an additional overview of all required parameters and their precise definition.
