Building information modelling (BIM) at Ludwig Freytag –
cutting edge planning and construction

Digitisation may pose major challenges for the construction industry, but it also offers enormous potential for developing a more efficient, cost-effective, resource-saving approach to work.

The Building Information Modelling (BIM) method takes a building’s entire life cycle into consideration. It does not matter whether it is a structure being built above ground or below ground or whether we are looking at a large or small pipeline or civil engineering infrastructure project.

A digital twin, the virtual image of the real structure, plays the central role in the BIM work environment as a multidimensional data model.

This is where all the information on the structure is collected and stored: centrally, unequivocally, free of redundancies and always up to date.

The digital twin is modelled right at the design stage of a construction project. This allows all project participants to agree on everything down to the tiniest detail long before the ground is broken. This also helps to prevent mistakes and optimise processes in highly complex projects – two of the many advantages that make BIM so attractive. The digital twin offers each project participant an optimally adapted representation of the structure, adjust to each different application and what’s more, offering a view of the structure’s entire life cycle.

BIM at Ludwig Freytag: innovation for everyone’s benefit

The BIM Department at Ludwig Freytag sees itself as a service provider for all companies in the group and for their partners and clients. We maintain a cooperative, transparent working relationship with all project participants and consequently preferably implement projects with openBIM to ensure interoperability.

We develop our data models in such a way that they are high-performing and can be used to a maximum extent. In doing so, we attach great importance to holistic management from planning and implementation through to subsequent management.

Our area of responsibility also includes support for the introduction of the BIM methodology for day-to-day project work. We rely on customised, innovative process management and a wide range of software solutions to handle the wide variety of tasks. Our internal manuals and guidelines help us introduce new BIM tools and assist colleagues in offices and on construction sites.

The many different departments within the company group in particular present us with exciting challenges on a daily basis that our experienced team of engineers, architects, draughtsmen and surveying engineers enjoy taking on.

We process the digital twin as a central data model in the 3D to 5D BIM range, meaning times and costs are taken into account for the entire project period. This allows us to provide Ludwig Freytag Group members with all the data they require for the project implementation – from process planning and calculation through to the construction site and beyond. In doing so, we are able to draw on our colleagues’ many years of experience in implementing projects within each company in the group and on the BIM Department’s expertise.

An embedded culture of close cooperation with our clients and contractors defines our goal to lead every project to success with a clear focus on customer satisfaction.

We work at the cutting edge!
