Location: Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Client: Days of Architecture
Size: 5.285 sqm
Data Source: DWG, JPG
Scope: BIM Modeling
This project aimed to carry out a conversion of historical buildings into BIM models, such as is done in most of the world’s metropolises, using BIM as a powerful technique for modeling, representation and long-term management of the built environment.
Our team will use also use BIM for an information modeling of heritage buildings in the city of Sarajevo, striving to make it useful for the citizens and facility managers who can use these models as a relevant information throughout the life cycle of the building.
Our task was:
– To collect and analyse all available data related to the National Museum of BiH, which includes 2D CAD drawings, 3D Graphic Models, pictures etc.
– To collect measurement data by on-site surveying – taking measures of missing dimensions and documenting characteristics of both exterior and interior elements
– To develop a working and accurate BIM model by using collaborative BIM techniques, which was used for a graphical video mapping presentation during the opening event of the Days of Architecture Festival on 17 May 2017.
In cooperation with the Days of Architecture, our company has actively participated in the so-called BIM mapping of the city of Sarajevo for the last few years. After mapping the Sarajevo History Museum in 2015, and the City Hall in 2016, this year, we presented a model of the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which will be used for video mapping.
Due to the large size of the project, the construction has been divided among the BIM modeling Team. As the Museum’s building complex consists of four pavilions, the workload has been divided between three team members, each working on a specific part of the complex.
The main challenge was to provide the BIM Modelling Team with accurate data. The existing CAD drawings were created with few collision problems, which required the team to do on-site measurements of each building, both recording the interior and exterior dimensions of elements.
