Project summary:

The objective of the project is to develop in Nordic collaboration an international model for building services design and design management. It covers analysis of the design process, a model for preliminary design documentation, quality assurance and visualization of the design for the client. The model is based on the building life cycle data management and use of product model based design and analysis tools. The main focus of the development is on client oriented design documentation and suitability for international building projects. The BS-Nordic model has already been piloted in several projects.

Product model based design tools has been also developed, among other things a new type of tool for visualization of the building IFC model, GraphicViewer. The first version of this versatile tool is already applied to verification of design requirements and production of visual design documents for the clients.
