Abstract
Background
BIM, Building Information Modelling, is a relatively new approach to work with building design and information management within the building industry. As higher demands are placed on product information and information management, manufacturers of building materials have to meet the need for BIM objects and 3D modeling. Ecophon is a supplier of sound absorbing ceilings and wall absorber systems. Problem specification and research question
What are the user’s demands and needs for a BIM object of a suspended ceiling system, and how can such an object be designed to meet these requirements? Purpose and aims The purpose is to conduct a survey to find out how the market for BIM objects look like, and find out which properties... (More)
Background
BIM, Building Information Modelling, is a relatively new approach to work with building design and information management within the building industry. As higher demands are placed on product information and information management, manufacturers of building materials have to meet the need for BIM objects and 3D modeling. Ecophon is a supplier of sound absorbing ceilings and wall absorber systems. Problem specification and research question
What are the user’s demands and needs for a BIM object of a suspended ceiling system, and how can such an object be designed to meet these requirements? Purpose and aims The purpose is to conduct a survey to find out how the market for BIM objects look like, and find out which properties related to ceilings that are important when working with 3D modeling and BIM. The goal is to identify the building process in terms of ceilings and how the use of the various amounts of information looks like. The survey will form the basis for the development of an example of a BIM object for a suspended ceiling system. Scope and limitations
The thesis is limited to Tyréns’ and Ecophon’s interests, and the building component ceiling. The Swedish market is in focus during the investigation of the need for BIM objects. Method and implementation
The method involves literature studies, market research and studies of existing product libraries and BIM objects. The method also consists of interviews with actors involved in the building process and 3D modeling. The building process for suspended ceiling is determined through literature studies and interviews. Various process schemes are created to illustrate the building process around ceilings, and how the related information can be handled with help from BIM. Results
An example of a BIM object representing a ceiling system is developed in the software Revit Architecture, based on the information that has been collected through the literature study, interviews and market research. The BIM object contains information and properties that has been found as important among the target group. Based on what is possible to accomplish with current technology and development within BIM, the object functions are selected. Analysis and discussion
A BIM object representing a ceiling system should have a relatively simple structure and only contain parameters and properties that are utterly necessary. The concept of BIM includes that as much information as possible should be linked to a virtual model, which reduces the risk of possible errors in the process. Conclusion
A BIM object should only contain essential features and parameters. The BIM object should be designed as a graphic pattern in the shape of a grid, to display the size and location of the ceiling tiles. An important part is to integrate the data that can be used during the facility management to the BIM object. The users require that parameters containing information about the product name, manufacturer, fire ratings and sound insulation should be available in the BIM object. The BIM object should be created as a project file for the program Revit Architecture, as it is the most common software that is used for modeling today. (Less)
