EIB LUXEMBOURG – 3TH BUILDING ON THE KIRCHBERG SITE

In order to support its expanding activities and due to the approaching end of EIB West Building’s lifecycle, the European Investment Bank requires a new headquarters building. The proposed building on the Kirchberg Site will feature 1,500 workstations, a conference area, sports facilities, commercial spaces, underground parking... The design contrastingly combines a low rise, oblongvolume and a tower, and is set to be rated BREEAM Excellent on completion.

Task description

D‐studio acted as BIM Manager by defining the overall BIM strategy, different workflows (processes), process validation, and quality control. BIM tools that were used for this project include Autodesk AutoCAD/Revit/Navisworks, Primavera P6, and CostX for cost estimations. IFC files were used for model validation and checks. The BIM level is situated between 2 and 3. D‐studio introduced several technologies in order to meet the needs of dynamic integration of models/data from different sources. A dashboard meant for BIM consultation was used as supporting tool for information distribution and validation.
