BIM describes a software-supported method of networked planning, execution and management of buildings. In the process, all relevant, cross-divisional building data (operational units, purchasing, controlling, personnel, etc.) are digitally modelled, combined and recorded. The building is also visualised geometrically as a virtual model (digital twin). Construction-related changes and the associated effects on costs and deadlines, for example, are immediately visible.
In order to introduce the BIM method (Building Information Modelling) across the board at the DB Bahnbau Group, we started building up our experience and working on numerous pilot projects back in 2017.
Thanks to the BIM method, construction projects can be implemented more accurately, quickly and efficiently. As a result, the DB Bahnbau Group can implement all expectations in terms of quality and schedule accuracy even more consistently and meet the requirements of the Federal Government for contractors of all public infrastructure projects.
We have developed this method to such an extent that it has become a springboard to a digital future for rail construction for us and is paving the way for a modern Strong Rail.
