Max Bögl has adopted a comprehensive use of building information modeling (BIM) to optimize its design-build and construction processes, decreasing project risks and delivering projects in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Max Bögl developed an innovative digital process chain that leverages BIM-based design information and links all stages of project development—from design through construction and management—to the digital design model.
Watch Dr. Frank Neuberg, Head of Technical IT Applications, and his team describe how Max Bögl is using BIM to optimize and integrate construction processes
Max Bögl is the largest privately owned construction company in Germany. Founded in 1929, the company has a staff of more than 5,700 worldwide. The group’s services include large-scale projects in structural engineering, transport and civil engineering, tunneling, steel and plant construction, and system building construction.
The Max Bögl Group uses Autodesk® BIM solutions for its virtual design and construction processes to help provide high levels of quality, environmental efficiency, as well as cost efficient precast concrete fabrication and rapid on-site assembly. To promote the use of BIM throughout its organization and its partners, Max Bögl has even founded a BIM academy that develops training material and offers courses based on the experience the company has gained from its BIM-based projects.
For design, project communication, and design coordination workflows, Max Bögl uses Autodesk® Revit® Architecture and Autodesk® Navisworks® software. The company also uses Autodesk Navisworks software for 4D construction planning, simulation and sequencing; Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software for design visualization and communication; and AutoCAD® software for construction documentation.
The new 55,000-seat National Stadium in Bucharest, Romania is one of Max Bögl’s most recent BIM projects. On this design-build project, Max Bögl used Revit Architecture software to create a schematic design of the stadium in just 4 weeks. The team then used Revit Architecture and 3ds Max software to facilitate production of design visualizations and near cinematic-quality walkthroughs for a strategic bid presentation that helped convince the client to abandon its official design and move forward with Max Bögl’s more visually striking design. During detailed design, the company used Navisworks software for project coordination and 4D construction sequencing.
