The particularities of these new hospitals are that instead to be isolated in new locations, they were planned to be directly connected with bridges to existing reference active hospitals in the region, so they will act as extensions of services when necessary optimising human and clinical resources. The other important point is the character of urgency for these constructions, a fast-track methodology was implemented and all stakeholders coordinated in a pionneer concept of strategy so in a short of time, 20 weeks, the projects has been designed, prefabricated, constructed and coordinated. Finally, the use of new technologies including disrupting ones just to facilitate and to smooth the critical processes that were not possible to be effective due to the sanitary restrictions have been adopted by all parties and is in here in where BIM6D team has take this opportunity to demostrate, again, the capabilities of POWERBIM solution as a digital ecosystem platform integrating existing technologies to BIM, and the result has been a new case of sucess and more important: a new reference to follow for incoming projects from this great experience.
From the beginning all stakeholders in the projects were requested to work in BIM, so in construction stage we received these models to start the integration in order to provide a platform to integrate the building systems to these models. The model audit process have been necessary to understand if the quality of the models were the expected, for us the analysis have been focused on data quality, and we discovered that the models counted with a good basis to incorporate to next stages, with a standard classification system incorporated to easily identify the nature of components and other main aspects well implemented. The only problem is that the models were not ready to use in operations stage so these requirement was not included for the previous stages, this means that we would need to incoporate an extra layer of information in components, plus incorporating important settings in these equipment and spaces to maintain, but we have created just some samples to show how this task can be not too much difficult if we know the minimun requirements from final client.
GIS – BIM INTEGRATION
As system integrators, we understand that a health department need to manage not just one building, but multiple ones in a territory. The challenge is to have an easy way to integrate multiple assets in a single platform with just one click and locating buildings and infrastructures in the territory. The answer is again POWERBIM, with our pionneer GIS to BIM integration we can integrate simple volumetric shapes representing buildings and linking BIM models directly to them. Also in our GIS online system we can integrate real time data coming from surroundings of the buildings referred to data (private or public) important to be integrated to take on account for the management of the assets.
BIM GEOLOCATION OF PORTABLE CAMERA ROUTES
We needed to create virtual inspections from the interior of the buildings, so the exterior to buildings fixed cameras were not enough so we created the possibility to access to the building trough go-pro cameras. Operators in field or construction managers in on-site visit can transmit to multiple persons the media visualization and the route path represented in BIM. So we got to integrate multiple possibilities for media services integration in POWERBIM: Fixed ip cameras, go-pro portable cameras and the possibility to upload recorded videos from smartphones, the date of the recording will be placed automatically in the timeline date/hour taken from the file metadata.
MORE THAN CLIENTS – VISIONARY COLLABORATORS
What we need to evolve construction to a new stage is just to join capabilities from multiple roles in the sector, from professional respect to the effective collaboration and search from new challenges we think all is possible. We want to give special thanks to Servei Catala de la Salut and to Enne Gestio to rely on us to give us the possibility to test our digital ecosystem and to provide our contribution and energy at the service of the health sector, because as we always say, health must be the first sector to implement the highest technology because that will directly benefit society.
