The software is available in six languages (Catalan, English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish) and is designed so that it can be used in any country in the world thanks to the safety parameters that can be manually edited based on the requirements of each country.
Elements taken into account by Open BIM COVID-19
The program offers users the possibility to establish for the whole project a series of requirements to be met, such as the maximum capacity, interpersonal safety distance and the separation between people and routes. In addition, Open BIM COVID-19 has 10 different elements to create the safety plan to prevent the spread of this coronavirus
These elements include people, groups of people (to identify people that live together and have different criteria), routes, separator, reception point, bin, hydroalcoholic gel, mask, gloves and signs. “With all of these elements, the software is able to carry out a study in advance that simulates the most appropriate safety measures based on the conditions of each space and optimise them to the maximum by reducing the risk of spread”, highlights Benjamín González, Director of Corporate Development at CYPE.
Once the calculation has been performed, Open BIM COVID-19 checks it and displays warnings and errors in case any of the requirements previously indicated by the user have not been met. With the project completed, the program generates a justification report with a list of the elements that make up the safety plan to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which can be printed or exported to TXT, HTML, RTF, DOCX and PDF format, as well as generating a detailed safety plan.
