HOCHTIEF ViCon‘s International Operations Director and Qatar – ‎Managing Director René Schumann is to present at this year’s BIM Show Live, the UK‘s largest Building Information Modelling event, and he has provided an exclusive quote about his presentation.

Taking to the stage on Day 1 on Stage 3 at 3pm, René will conduct the ‘Stage 3: 4D and 5D modelling for the purpose of progress monitoring and quantity take-off for underground metro projects’ seminar and will cite examples of HOCHTIEF’s previous work on underground projects. René believes that 4D and 5D modelling “the cornerstone” to motivate contractors to fully implement BIM across the world.

In his exclusive statement, Schumann said:

“This year ViCon’s BSL presentation will cover 4D and 5D modelling for the purpose of progress monitoring and quantity take-off for underground metro projects.

“We selected this topic because we have had good experiences in underground projects. We will show our BIM Level 2 experience from the construction phase for 4D and 5D modelling in order to best prepare the hand over to the operation phase.

“I believe that 4D and 5D modelling will become the cornerstone to integrate and motivate contractors to do BIM and to adopt BIM as future standard procedure for their business. Therefore during my presentation I will highlight our newest BIM methods in 4D and 5D modelling gathered during the past two years from contractors on underground projects.”

HOCHTIEF ViCon made the news recently following successful BIM implementation in Egypt.
