Times of India reported that authorities at the Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) are all set to use an intelligent 3D design construction technology to build the second terminal (T2) at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). BIAL has identified Autodesk BIM 360 (Building Information Modelling) as the design and planning platform for construction of T2.

A press release from BIAL said that “This platform will ensure that the entire team is able to access information - from design, fabrication, and construction to operations and maintenance - to make informed decisions from a common point of understanding. Bengaluru airport is the first infrastructure project in the country that will be designed, built and operated across the project life cycle using an intelligent 3D design construction technology.”

Mr Tom Shimmin, chief project officer, BIAL, said that “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. BIM will enable us to develop new and innovative infrastructure, thereby setting new benchmark.”

Mr Sunil MK, head of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC), Autodesk, India & Saarc, said that “Globally, many developed countries including the US, the UK, Germany, Singapore and the 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 realise the country’s vision in infrastructure development.”
