Analysis of BIM methodology implementation for repetitive residential project: case study


The main aim of this article is to analyze the benefits of the BIM investment in repetitive residential projects. Global BIM investment practice shows that BIM is too expensive an investment for residential construction projects, that is why customers are choosing the traditional way to design and build. The detail case study analysis is made with the BIM methodology application to a single project and design in repeated projects in different places to get continuous benefits. In the analysis of investments, it is estimated the design, equipment and training costs, the comparison of inadequacies of the estimated calculations, the list of necessary changes of the project for the construction process and their evaluation are presented.

BIM metodologijos diegimo analizė kartotinių gyvenamųjų pastatų projekte: atvejo analizė


Pagrindinis šio straipsnio tikslas yra išanalizuoti BIM investicijų naudą vykdant kartotinius gyvenamųjų pastatų projektus. Pasaulinė BIM investicijų praktika rodo, jog BIM gyvenamųjų namų statyboje yra per brangi investicija, todėl užsakovai dažniau renkasi tradicinį projektavimo ir statybos būdą. Straipsnyje detaliai analizuojamas atvejis, kai BIM metodologija taikoma vienam projektui, ir jį kartojant, kai keičiama tik projekto statybos vieta, galima gauti daugiau naudos. Analizuojant investicijas įvertinamos projektavimo, įrangos ir mokymo išlaidos, palyginamos sąmatinių skaičiavimų neatitiktys, pateikiamas projekto pakeitimų, reikalingų atlikti statybos metu, sąrašas bei jų įvertinimas.

Reikšminiai žodžiai: BIM atvejo analizė, kartotinis projektas, investicijų vertinimas.
