Kindergarten in Schwoich, Austria

Structures Analyzed with Dlubal Software

  • Customer Project

Customer Project

A kindergarten, designed according to Building Information Modeling (BIM), is currently under construction in the Tyrolean municipality of Schwoich. The digital 3D model accompanies the construction project from design until completion.The architectural planning was performed with Autodesk Revit. The structural model, including cross-sections, materials, loads, and so on, was exported to RFEM with the direct interface and designed there.

BIM Planning from Beginning to End

AGA-Bau-Planungs GmbH from Kufstein in Tyrol was mandated to perform the complete design of the project. This planning has always been carried out on the digital model. It starts with the architecture (conceptual design, approval planning, and final planning) and ends with the carpentry (CNC data for joining).

For more than ten years, the engineers of AGA-Bau have relied exclusively on BIM. As with the kindergarten project in Schwoich, the structural analysis as well as the building and electrical technology, in addition to the architecture, are usually designed on the 3D model. Since AGA-Bau has already realized several international projects in this way, it got involved in this EUR 3.5 million project from the municipality.

Structure

The walls and slabs of the first floor are built using reinforced concrete. On this stand a post and beam structure made of timber. The three three-story central buildings with their monopitch roofs are like canine teeth pointing upwards. They are connected by access balconies, which are glazed in the lower floors.

The timber structure is stiffened by timber framed walls with OSB plates in longitudinal and transverse directions. The kindergarten has a floor space of 15,070 ft² in total.

The advantage of digital planning, according to BIM, is not only the time savings and cost certainty, but also that all parties could be involved in the planning process from the beginning, including the client and the childcare professionals.

"Generally, it needs to be mentioned that planning according to the BIM method also pays off for smaller projects or smaller engineering offices," says master builder Anton Gasteiger from AGA-Bau.
