SierraSoft BIM Labs
The activities of research, development and partnerships for BIM
SierraSoft BIM Labs includes the set of SierraSoft activities concerning study, research, development and partnership that have the purpose of analyzing and studying BIM and its evolutions.
SierraSoft BIM Labs activities include participation in national and international working groups, collaborations with academic institutions, and with companies and firms working in the field of BIM for infrastructure.
The purpose of these activities is to develop and share culture regarding BIM for infrastructure.
Some of the main study, research and development activities:
Road design with information modeling adopting IFC 4x3
SierraSoft Srl and Politecnica Ingegneria ed ArchitetturaThe aim of the project was to identify a road design method in openBIM that ensures that the benefits of BIM are achieved early in the design phase: High quality of information models, better collaboration, optimization of costs and resources, improved design quality and continuous flow of the BIM process. The results of the project were presented on 1 February 2023 at infraBIM Open 2023 - Tampere - Finland 2021 - 2023
