3D Building Information Modelling
This project will transport 166,000 passengers per day during the pilgrimage period between the two Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina via Jeddah and KAEC. The modular structure of the station, designed by Foster+Partners and Buro Happold JV, enabled the speedy delivery of a high quality construction. BIM was used as a 3D design coordination tool to ensure a fully integrated approach to detailed design process. Therefore, the 3D model was created, managed and updated in line with the content and level of detail required progressively during all phases of the design process, to identify and resolve all interferences among building components before construction.
