Title: BIM-uses - Concerning 3D-reinforcements in the construction process
Authors: OMAR, YUSUF
Abstract: In recent decades, many industries have experienced how digitization has changed both ways of working and its results. The construction industry is now facing such development. The master thesis demonstrates how the current reinforcement process looks and how the future reinforcement process estimates to look. In addition, what upcoming projects should consider if they wants to implement/utilize digitalized reinfrocment. The purpose of this master thesis were to find out the required management and technology for implementing digitalized reinforcement. At the same time figure out how the reinforcement process looks from the drawing desk to the construction site. The methodology performed in this master thesis has been interviews with the concerned project participants in the reinforcement processes and a 3D-modeling test in the project; Kvibergs-Ängar. The findings of this master thesis has been that there is a need of communication improvements between the structural engineers and the contractors. To reach an intact information flow must the contractor become clearer with their description of the casting stages they want and the reinforcement method they desire to the structural engineers, at the same time do the contractors need to procure the reinfrocment supplier earlier in the process. In order to get the information right from the start do all the participants in the reinfrocment process need to attend earlier in the process. Currently are there some good opportunities with visualizing and working with digitized reinforcement from the designer’s drawing board to the construction worker's workplace on site. The current IT-tools allows the structural engineer create reinfrocment specifications/schedules through two different alternatives. The first alternatives is creating it in the Revit structure and Teklas structure plugin app. Q-reinforcement which now is called QR. Alternatively, the second method which is Solibri model checker there the contractor and supplier is allowed to view the color coded reinforcement and follow up its order and delivery status. For visualization, purpose on the construction site do the contractor have two good option to utilize such as Glue BIM 360 or Tekla BIMsight/ Field on their IPads. Furthermore has few studies earlier addressed the use of digitalized reinforcement process among the site workers. Thus, the findings provide practitioners and researchers insight into how current practices maybe improved, as well as areas where more research is needed.
