Dongdaemun Design Plaza

Architects: Zaha Hadid Architects
Area: 89574 m²
Year: 2014
DDP, as the first public project to implement BIM and digital tools in its construction, had made it possible to adapt the design with continuously developing client’s needs, as well as engineering and construction requirements. Through BIM The team were able to have greater control of the design and details, with much greater precision than a conventional construction process; giving the client and the contractors a much better understanding and control of the project. The BIM technologies not only made it through the construction phase, but also made it easier to operate and maintain the life-cycle of the building.

Qatar National Museum

Architects: Atelier Jean NouvelAtelier Jean Nouvel
Area: 52000 m²
Year: 2019
Construction: Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co.

South Korea’s Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. finished construction of the National Museum of Qatar after seven years of hard work since it won the $434 million worth mega project in September 2011 from Qatar Museum Authority. It introduced 3D building information modeling (BIM) to all construction procedures to conduct a virtual test before actual construction, which resulted in saving costs and shortening construction period, the company said. Through BIM model, specialized planners and contractors involved in the project were able to continuously contrast the results of their plans and designs. This model was the only way to handle the high geometric complexity of the project and avoid clashes between individual components.

세종시 국립도서관

Architects: Samoo Architects & Engineers
Area: 21076m²
Year: 2013
The National Library of Sejong City is the first branch facility of the National Library of Korea that was built in the Multifunctional Administrative City of Korea, also known as Sejong City. Due to the unique shape and geometry of the building, the project was initiated with BIM (Building Information Modeling) from the beginning. Major structural elements such as slab, columns, and cores were modeled with BIM in order to confirm the viability of the required programs as well as constructability. BIM provided solutions to pre-construction simulations of interoperability among various disciplines and manufacturing of unique panels and curtain wall systems that was fundamental to the unique geometries of this project.
