Project director for Stavanger University Hospital (SUS2023), Kari Gro Johansen also talked about the benefits of standardised solutions for patient rooms and bathrooms in the model. When you replace an element in one project space, the same happens in all other rooms. She is also pleased with the international recognition the project has achieved.
“We are naturally proud to have been chosen as the world’s best digital project. The most important thing for us about using the BIM model is to have an all-digital construction site. That is quite ground-breaking in itself - a building site without paper drawings. BIM gives you very structured data, which is a big plus from using the model,” says Johansen.
In 2018, Tungland and Fadnes were on the winning team when SUS2023 came out top in the AEC Excellence Awards, also known as the world championships in BIM modelling. It all came about because they had to enhance the Autodesk modelling software themselves when they set out to design the hospital. Read more here.
