Digitization in construction
Hans Georg Oltmanns
Hans Georg Oltmanns (66) is an expert in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Honorary Professor at the Jade University. On Friday, he will mitbegründen a society for the digitization of planning and construction of buildings.
Q: Mr. Oltmanns, what exactly is Building Information Modeling (BIM) ?
Oltmanns: This is to build nothing but the building virtually ever. It can be through 3D glasses also already entered, you can try it out. Most always think the BIM but only on 3D models. However, when building information modeling it comes to merge all information about a building at a location in a database to continually add and manage. This is different than the previous operation, where after each planning phase, a new plan begun in the next larger scale. How to do it in Germany for many decades. The entire construction industry is lagging behind in the digitization. We use the opportunities offered by the computer too little. Elsewhere it is much more. The English are ahead of us, for example, five years. We have disconnected us from this technology.
Q: What is the organization that was founded in Berlin Friday, modify, ?
Oltmanns: This organization is to define standards for Germany and help the offices here to introduce it. As long as I can remember planners, suppliers and builders have never been brought together in a single institution, which is to improve cooperation. There are also research money targeted, so that we can the gap to the other countries catch up quickly
Q: What role does the Jade University in BIM
Oltmanns: Jade University is known throughout Germany as innovative in this area. We include a lot of master, diploma and bachelor theses, the parts of this new method. We have also managed to push a research project where a real construction projects by BIM methods is planned. This is the first project of its kind in Germany. We have also begun three years ago to give the Oldenburg construction day the theme BIM. And now has a great name
