With the BIM technologies, the design time has been significantly reduced

Information modeling technologies (BIM) are actively implemented when creating the project “Prityazhenie” (“the Attraction”) in Magnitogorsk, which accelerates the design process. This was stated by Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, during “100+ TechnoBuild 2021” International Forum held in Yekaterinburg.

“We accumulated a vast experience of BIM technologies application at various construction facilities, and thanks largely to this the Design Institute of Mosinzhproekt was chosen to work on such a landmark and significant project for entire Urals as «Prityazhenie».
