Workshop on BIM application in technical infrastructure management

On September 22, 2017, the Department of Technical Infrastructure of the Ministry of Construction cooperated with the Vietnam Association of Construction Informatics to organize a seminar “Application of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in Technical Infrastructure Management” in Ho Chi Minh City. Deputy Minister of Construction Phan Thi My Linh attended and chaired the Workshop.

Speaking at the opening of the workshop, Deputy Minister Phan Thi My Linh said that the Construction industry restructuring project is associated with transforming the growth model towards improving quality, efficiency and competitiveness in the period 2014 – 2020 has been approved by the Prime Minister since 2015, which proposes solutions to research and cooperate with developed countries in applying, applying and mastering modern technologies and techniques in management science. construction management and construction economics; application of building information model, application of virtual construction and design software (VDC). In 2016, the Prime Minister approved the Scheme on application of BIM model in construction and operation management activities (Decision 2500 dated December 22, 2016), in which the State encourages the State to encourage the implementation of the project. encourage and create conditions for entities involved in construction activities to apply BIM model, implement solutions to improve productivity, quality, save resources in construction, management and operation activities. construction. Through the application of BIM model, it is possible to save construction costs, shorten construction time, significantly reduce design adjustments, enhance transparency, etc.

Deputy Minister Phan Thi My Linh also said that in the period of 2017-2019, the Ministry of Construction will preside over and coordinate with ministries, branches and localities to organize the implementation of tasks of the project on applying BIM model in the field of construction. construction and operation management activities, which focuses on information activities, propaganda and awareness raising, building legal corridors, developing BIM application guidelines, building programs framework and training; In the period 2018-2020, it will pilot the application of BIM model in design, construction, and project management for at least 20 new construction projects and pilot BIM application for operation management of 10 important projects. .

Presenting the presentation “BIM in urban technical infrastructure management”, Mr. Vo Thanh Tung – President of Vietnam Association of Construction Informatics said, managing urban technical infrastructure system is a job. complex and important task of urban governments. The management of the urban technical infrastructure system starts from planning, followed by investment in construction and management of exploitation, operation, and maintenance. The application of BIM will allow management of information about the technical infrastructure system from planning information to asset management, integrating information from many data sources, which is an important data source to serve the needs of customers. smart city construction.

According to Mr. Vu Thanh Cong – Harmony Software Technology Joint Stock Company, technical infrastructure management includes managing the entire product life cycle from planning to design, construction, and operation. BIM is essentially for the purpose of information exchange, requiring information quality, information processes and information standardization. However, without a BIM process there is no BIM. Therefore, the BIM system emphasizes process management, requiring process compliance, process management tools as well as the process itself to be continuously optimized. Harmony Company has also introduced software solutions that are products developed by the company that apply to most stages of the BIM process.

Regarding the difficulties and challenges when applying BIM in the practice of implementing some projects in Vietnam, Mr. Pham Ngoc Sau – University of Architecture of Ho Chi Minh City. Currently, there are a number of projects that have been implemented and applied the BIM model, but because it is in the pilot research phase, it has encountered some difficulties such as not having a unified BIM standard, Ho Chi Minh said. leading to both building a model, building a workflow, and building a template library, making the model step execution time slower than the traditional way. Besides, to build a BIM team requires investment in computers, servers, and human resource training. BIM research is currently spontaneous at design consulting companies, not much attention from investors and construction contractors. Due to spontaneous research, there will be many differences when developing the process, making it difficult to agree between units if they are involved in a project.

Another difficulty is that because the current construction technology mainly depends on 2D drawings, the 3D model has to be extracted into 2D drawings, making the export time not faster than the method. traditional. On the other hand, budget projects are required to apply state norms, so removing the volume from the 3D model cannot meet it, most of the volume items must be calculated manually. The application of prices for the tasks is similar, so when implementing the progress (4D) and cost (5D) steps, it will not be appropriate and the work must be divided into…
