Lifecycle visualization solution for the new hospital in Stavanger

31.01.2017

The new hospital in Stavanger is planned to be ready in year 2023. This complex project requires robust decision support and effective communication throughout the whole lifecycle of the hospital.

 It is expected that the amount of data and number of smart sensors will increase in the years to come.  To effectively navigate in this jungle of information users will depend on solutions which are easy to use and which immediately gives an overall overview.

The comparison with major development projects in the oil & gas sector is striking: Both sectors have high complexity and invest significant amounts in a digital model (e.g. BIM: ‘’Bygningsinformasjonsmodellering’’) as the basis for construction of the buildings. However, the digital model is seldom used in a lifecycle perspective. BIM has a relatively static presentation of geometric and technical data and falls short in relation to communication, interaction, training and education, and decision support throughout assets lifetime. Much of the information that is needed and accessible is positioned in isolated silos and supports only separate specialist tools.

The aim of this project is to demonstrate how an interactive 3D solution will further refine the BIM model and support users and decision makers throughout the lifecycle of the buildings.  The company Visco AS has developed a lifecycle visualization solution for the oil & gas sector (VCOG), and together with Stavanger university hospital they will demonstrate how this solution can be applied within construction. While a BIM model is often reserved for the technical disciplines in the construction phase, VCOG addresses all stakeholders that are directly and indirectly involved in the assets. VCOG will act as a communication and decision-making tool for owners, builders, developers, contractors, architects, politicians, operation and maintenance operators, management, employees, patients and visitors through the design phase, and the preparation and operational phase.
