Hotel RAI Amsterdam

Nhow RAI Amsterdam

Nhow Rai Amsterdam is a special design with lots of glass and a striking and important building on the Zuidas in Amsterdam. The building's functions and shape make it a complex architectural project. This has made it a fantastic challenge for Van den Berg Bouwkundigen to coordinate the various Building Information Models together with all parties.

Why has Van den Berg Bouwkundigen been chosen?

Van den Berg Bouwkundigen is familiar with the surroundings of the RAI.  We have been working for Amsterdam RAI for many years, so we know the surroundings and recognise the various structures. We have proposed the client to use the BIM model as a real communication model for all disciplines within this project. All the important tunings - such as installations, recesses, shafts, sprinkler heads, etc. - were taken into account - are well coordinated within the BIM model. In addition, Van den Berg Bouwkundigen was invited because of the excellent BIM knowledge and experience with projects of this scale.

What is special about the project?

Of course the scale and complexity of the design, reduced to a construction and a building that fits well together. We are proud of the contribution we have been able to make, by working together to visualise what the real situation is going to be and convert the bumps into fantastic and efficient solutions. In the VO and DO phase we did the BIM coordination for the client between client, architect, structural engineer and installation consultant. After the DO phase we did the technical elaboration of the structural part. In this phase we also carried out the BIM coordination between the contractor, structural engineers and various installation consultants. An important part of this coordination was the sparring coordination. This was done using sparring models and a sparring procedure. In this procedure, the sparring task went through a step-by-step plan from desired saving to final saving.
