To achieve a central overview and control while constructing the new university hospital in Odense New OUH takes a completely different path and provides the Italian contractor JV CMB / Itinera with a mandatory digital toolbox. OUHs BIM-strategy ensures a common data structure, a uniform digital exchange and the automatic coding and structuring of thousands of building parts.
With this new approach to the project start, OUH ensures data quality and fulfillment of requirements of all ICT-demands, thereby allowing New OUH to create full transparency and uniformity in all phases of the hospital build from the very beginning.
This action is taken based on a clear strategy to minimize the risk of errors and delays and to support strict financial management at the largest turnkey in Danish history.
OUH wants to avoid the actors working in each of their “silos”. The mandatory, digital tools provide far closer cooperation, allowing OUH to manage the project with insight and overview. It all comes down to providing full transparency to all actors with regards to classification standards and building object characteristics.
The Danish developed BIM-tool from Projectspine® provides new OUH with new opportunities for insight and active control across actors and digital production platforms. Including the classification of building information, which is typically a heavy manual process with great risk of error that may delay and add costs to a project.
”By ensuring high quality in communication and information across all actors in a building project, Spine® provides building owner, contractor and advisors deep insight. Furthermore, it makes it far easier to meet demands on ICT implementation,” Susanne Lund, Managing Director at Projectspine®, explains.
“All building data and properties for the individual objects will be integrated into New OUHs Facility Management system. Because of this, the operating agency can easily and with a few clicks find building parts and their codes, “ says Susanne Lund.
Ensures precise project and financial control
In short, the Spine platform ensures that all parties in a building project gain synchronization, automatic exchange of building data as well as access to data in real-time in their 3D models. The Spine® platform validates data in all model files so that New OUH can create uniformity in the projects.
Because of this, the building owner creates a uniform data structure with full transparency of models, structural elements and phases in the construction. This provides much higher data quality thereby ensuring accurate project material and have a great impact on financial control.
The construction of New OUH will be one of the largest hospital constructions in Denmark ever and when it is completed by the end of 2022 it will be the largest new-build hospital in the country.
