Mosinzhproekt continues to develop its BIM Competence Centre

The recruitment of the first wave of BIM management and design department specialists has been finished

Mosinzhproekt continues work to develop its BIM Competence Centre, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of the engineering holding, said at the 10th Moscow Urban Forum. Mosinzhproekt is an operator of Moscow’s key urban planning programs and acts as the Exclusive Partner and exhibitor at MUF 2021.

“Currently, the recruitment of the first wave of BIM management and design department specialists has been finished, the first stage of training in the basic course has been conducted and a distance learning programme for the company’s employees has been formed,” Yuri Kravtsov specified and reminded that the BIM Competence Centre at Mosinzhproekt would not only design facilities using BIM, but would also implement a methodology covering all production processes.

“To fully implement BIM, the company chose a pilot metro facility – the Krasny Stroitel depot intended to service rolling stock of the future Biryulyovskaya metro line; currently, a working group including representatives of the Mosinzhproekt depot division has been created to coordinate work on implementing BIM technology throughout the life cycle of the project,” Yuri Kravtsov noted.

In addition, according to the General Director, technical requirements for BIM have been prepared to be included in the terms of reference for the design of the Biryulyoskaya and Rublyovo-Arkhangelskaya metro lines.

Yuri Kravtsov noted that the value of using information modelling technologies lies in the fact that this information model links various tools, modules and participants, including in terms of making and agreeing decisions.

“The positive effects for both the project contractor and the customer will include a reduction in construction costs, elimination of errors, and shortening of delivery times through a higher level of work coordination; in addition, the information embedded in the BIM model will find its application at the construction and installation stage and during operation,” the General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC concluded.

For the first time, Mosinzhproekt applied information modelling technologies during the reconstruction of the Luzhniki Stadium – it developed a constructive model, into which all utility networks of the BSA were incorporated. The design for the Irina Viner-Usmanova Gymnastics Palace opened on the territory of the Luzhniki Olympic Complex was also developed using BIM technologies.
