Masterclass BIM

At the site of the former headquarters of Fortis at the Rokin in Amsterdam two new department stores are being erected. The project has completely been engineered in BIM in a very detailed manner by all parties involved. The buildings have been prefabricated to a very large extend, following the corresponding 3D models. This was necessary due to the limited storage space on site. On Thursday the 3rd of November Octatube will participate in a BIM Masterclass on the project.

In-depth information will be shared on how an integral project approach with intensive collaboration between all parties can successfully bring complex inner city project to realization. Experiences in the logistical challenges of the project and the crucial role that BIM plays will be shared with the public. Parties from both design, advisory, supply chain and installation will talk about their share in the BIM process. Marcel Haasnoot (head of engineering) will speak on behalf of Octatube.
