“Smart design of and at a historic warehouse: with hypermodern digital techniques”, “from Fenix Warehouse to Fenix App” and “Gamification of the construction industry”. These are some of the enthousiastic reactions to the presentation by project manager and associate partner Robert Platje at the BIM conference day. Platje told the story of Fenix I: the transformation of the existing Fenix warehouse into a loft building with space for creative and culinary businesses.
The annual BIM conference day at the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht was, once again, a great success. At this independent event, real experience is being shared about the application of the Building Information Model in design, building, and management. Cases from the actual practice – as Fenix I – are what make this day extra interesting.
The complex plan—with a combination of transformation and new build—has been entirely executed in Revit and is a great example of a BIM project in which four disciplines come together: architect, contractor, constructor, and installer. Platje enthusiastically shared his experience, from the implementation of the point cloud to the development of the smartphone app in order to engage future residents in the process.
The room was packed, and Platje noted that there was a “great energy”.
