BIAL taps Autodesk BIM 360 tech for KIA Terminal 2 construction

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) has decided to leverage Autodesk BIM 360 (Building Information Modeling) technology as the design and planning platform for the construction of the Terminal 2 (T2) at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA).

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) has decided to leverage Autodesk BIM 360 (Building Information Modeling) technology as the design and planning platform for the construction of the Terminal 2 (T2) at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA).

The intelligent 3D design construction technology will provide the project team with access to information on design, fabrication, construction, operations and maintenance to help make informed decisions.

KIA is said to be the first infrastructure project in the country that will leverage the technology throughout the project lifecycle.

“BIAL will look to leverage the full extent of digital design under the Autodesk suite from design to on-site construction, asset and facilities management.”

BIAL chief project officer Tom Shimmin said: “As part of our digital transformation, BIAL will look to leverage the full extent of digital design under the Autodesk suite from design to on-site construction, asset and facilities management.

“BIM will enable us to develop new and innovative infrastructure, thereby setting new benchmarks.”

BIAL has launched the tender for T2 construction to select construction groups. Deadline for submitting the bids expires on 30 August 2018.

T2 will be built in phases, with phase one totalling an area of 255,000m². This phase, scheduled to become operational by March 2021, will serve nearly 25 million passengers per year.

The second phase of the project, which is still under planning stage, will serve an additional 20 million passengers annually.

Autodesk India and SAARC head of architecture, engineering and construction Sunil MK said: “Globally, many developed countries including the US, UK, Germany, Singapore, UAE have mandated BIM in buildings and infrastructure projects which has led to better construction efficiency, lower cost and lesser negative impact on the environment.

“It is the right time for India to adopt this industry best practice to realize the country’s vision in infrastructure development.”
