BIM2SIM – Integrating pedestrian simulation in construction processes
Construction projects are complex. With increasing demands in safety, comfort, ergonomics and aesthetics, practitioners are turning to digital technologies to manage the details. Crowd simulation is one such digital tool. Well known in the field of fire safety, crowd simulation evaluates the functionality and performance of a building in advance, reducing risk and highlighting design weaknesses. In combination with Building Information Modeling, crowd simulation seamlessly integrates into construction planning.
The advantage: mistakes in the planning phase can be detected early and high follow-up costs can be avoided. This is also confirmed in the figures: with simulation costs of 0.02% of the project costs, the high follow-up costs of an average of 10% can be reduced.
