Autodesk Inc. awarded its latest BIM Experience Award to Max Bogl Group, the largest private construction company in Germany, for its recent work on a 55,000-seat National Stadium in Bucharest, Romania.
The schematic design of the design-build project, built in partnership with Italy-based Astaldi, was created in four weeks using Autodesk Revit Architecture software. The Max Bogl team then used Autodesk Revit Architecture and Autodesk 3ds Max Design software to produce design visualizations and cinematic-quality walkthroughs for a strategic bid presentation that convinced the client to abandon its official design and move forward with Max Bogl's more visually striking design.
During the detailed design phase, the company used Autodesk Navisworks software for project coordination and 4D construction sequencing.
To promote the use of BIM throughout its organization and its partners, the Max Bogl Group has founded a BIM academy that develops training material and offers courses based on the experience the company has gained from its BIM-based projects.
"Applying a BIM process, and leveraging software such as Autodesk Navisworks, allowed us to effectively manage design, project communication and overall design coordination workflows," said Frank Neuberg, head of technical IT applications for the Max Bogl Group. "We were able to develop an innovative digital process chain that uses BIM-based design information and links all stages of project development -- from design through construction and management -- to the digital design model."
The Autodesk BIM Experience Award celebrates professionals and educators around the world that help drive an industry transformation through building information modeling. Autodesk honors organizations for their innovation, leadership and excellence in implementing BIM with the help of core BIM products, including one or more of the Autodesk products.
