Australia: The Sydney Opera House has appointed a consortium of companies led by AECOM to deliver a ground-breaking interface between traditional Building Management Control Systems, Building Information databases and BIM.
Working in association with BIM Academy and EcoDomus, AECOM’s implementation of the new technology will be critical to the management and development of the Sydney Opera House. The consortium is working on delivering an innovative, web-based 3D graphical interface that maps both the physical and functional characteristics of Australia’s most famous building. The BIM interface will link a geo-spatially accurate model of the Opera House building and surrounding site to existing engineering documentation and maintenance and building management and control systems. The objective of the project is to create a tool that will provide a single source of information for regular building operational requirements as well as ongoing developmental works and projects.
