Thanks to the thermal and acoustic characterisation and the description of the building’s constructive elements that can be carried out in Open BIM Construction Systems, the model can be completed with additional data. Once the architectural model is correctly defined, the project will be ready to receive more layers of information and to add the other disciplines to the workflow in order to complete the final model.
Coordinating and ensuring the quality of the final model are the main aims of the Open BIM Model Checker program.
Once the model has been developed, two very important phases of the construction project cycle can be carried out. On the one hand, generating the project’s bill of quantities using Open BIM Quantities, based on the properties of the developed model. On the other hand, extracting floor plans, elevations, sections, construction details and perspectives, using Open BIM Layout, in order to generate the set of deliverables that make up the graphic documentation of the project.
