Norwegian Government Agency Statsbygg have announced plans to develop Brønnøysund Register Center, and Building Information Modelling will be needed to ensure the complex design is completed to the highest standard possible.

In a post on their official website, the BIM consultancy working with Statsbygg on the project, aptly named BIM Consult, have revealed that their are now liaising with Statsbygg’s BIM Coordinator to plan how best to implement BIM on the project.

The new offices to be built as part of the Brønnøysund Register Center comprise of two buildings, one of which is by the seafront, with the second, longer building positioned behind it. The two buildings are connected by a skywalk, which should look very interesting in BIM software.

Statsbygg and BIM Consult are working closely with local authorities to also meet their demands, due to the construction affecting many aspects in the small town of Brønnøysund, such as the city-square, traffic centre and car-parking facilities. “It is important that we take account of all this in our concept”, said Statsbygg’s MD, Harald Nikolaisen.

Speaking of the project on their website, BIM Consult wrote: “We have high hopes and are very positive that this team will make a solid and thorough project delivery, as all of the participants have internal goals to make good use of BIM in the project.”

Final plans will be submitted in early September, with a completed sketch of the project made available by late October 2014.
