Port of Rotterdam joins BIM Basis Infra for digital collaboration
At the rate of knots, the Port of Rotterdam and the construction industry are embracing digitalisation.
The precondition for digital collaboration between supply chain partners such as construction companies and engineering firms is that they all speak the same digital language. This is why BIM Basis Infra, a common language used for the exchange of digital infrastructure information, is joining the Port of Rotterdam Authority.
BIM Basis Infra helps avoid the cost of failure (the costs incurred due to errors in design and during construction). This development is in line with the ambition of the Port of Rotterdam Authority to construct an increasingly smarter port and operate through the Port of Rotterdam for the most reliable, seamless and sustainable logistics chains.
BIM (Building Information Management) and collaborating with BIM standards will assist the Port of Rotterdam Authority in managing the port's various assets with information.
The vision of the Port of Rotterdam Authority is to develop a digital infrastructure that will shadow its analog infrastructure.
In the built environment, Building Information Management, or BIM for short, stands for digital collaboration. Throughout a building's life cycle, BIM is all about the integrated management and use/reuse of digital construction knowledge. Data is entered once and used several times, whenever possible.
