ARCHICAD is BIM

The Pride company was founded in 2013. Its founders are professionals with vast experience in implementing large and technologically complex buildings. Today, the company employs more than 60 highly-qualified specialists, including 30 architects. Pride not only provides architectural design, but also master plan development, structural and engineering solutions. The company handles a full line-up of services: from creating concepts to leveraging urban potential; creation of design development (DD) and construction documentation (CD) of buildings and supervision of the construction phase.

One of the most important priorities for the company is the widespread use of building information modeling technologies. Performing complex tasks requires a comprehensive BIM solution that can serve as the principal tool for coordinating the work of architects, designers, and engineers of all related specialties. BIM technology provides an integrated design approach throughout all the stages of the building life cycle.

The desire to offer customers unique architectural solutions and the ability to implement complex tasks was prompted by the company’s management and resulted in the implementation of ARCHICAD: a program that doesn’t require a time-consuming setup.

One of the recent projects developed by the Pride company is the Irina Viner-Usmanova Rhythmic Gymnastics Center, completed in 2019. The center, which is in Moscow’s Luzhniki Olympic Complex, seats 4,000 and is ready to host competitions and training events. Its features include partially transformable tribunes and VIP boxes. Its appearance conveys a unique roof shape resembling the wave of a gymnastic ribbon.

“During the initial stage, we created a preliminary concept rather quickly, consisting of several completely different solutions, such as extraordinary forms, or a more geometric appearance maintaining a clear rhythm of the façade. The customer chose the form of a ribbon fluttering above the ground. We were able to develop the first 3D model in less than a month,” says chief architect of the Pride company, Elena Myznikova.

A single model from concept to documentation

 

The project won the “BIM 2016” Russian competition in the “BIM project: sports facilities” category, and demonstrates the successful use of the OPEN BIM approach in its design. The exchange of data between software platforms was carried out using the open IFC format developed by buildingSMART (International Alliance for Interoperability, IAI).

The architectural part of the project was carried out by the Pride Company. The main tools for the Design Development and Construction Documentation phases were ARCHICAD and Rhinoceros/Grasshopper. The final demo model was done in ARCHICAD, with nested Xref files, structural elements, etc. The complex design of the roof was created in Rhinoceros/ Grasshopper. Its structural and engineering solutions were developed by the Metropolis company using a software for engineers.

“At a construction site, we always go with the tablet that contains an ARCHICAD model. When discussing our solutions and ideas with our clients, we usually use the BIMx mobile app. BIMx is also indispensable when you need to focus on a certain part of the project and to monitor the progress of construction. Using BIMx, we can easily access all the necessary specifications of BIM model elements,” says chief architect of the Pride company, Vitaliy Krestianchik.

During the concept stage of development, the floor areas, ceilings and floor finishes, opening quantities and other common parameters were defined. For coordination of the concept with the general designer, Mosinzhproekt, and the client, Pride used BIMx - a handy tool for viewing BIM models on mobile devices. All project files and documentation drawings were combined into a single Hyper-model and displayed using BIMx. Thus, the Pride company was able to rotate the project in a 3D environment to allow consideration of additional details.

After approval of the concept, the architectural model was transferred to the relevant consultants using the IFC format. For each contractor, the file was prepared separately in ARCHICAD: some subcontractors didn’t need a roof, while others didn’t need concrete structures. To locate errors, the Solibri Model Checker application was used to perform collision detection analysis of information models.

At the same time, we made a parametric model of the roof using the Rhinoceros and Grasshopper-ARCHICAD Live Connection, which determined the options for the optimization of the metal frame elements. With this information, the manufacturer of the standing seam roof presented examples of the roof panel arrangements that were possible, based on the load-bearing capabilities of the metal sheets. The calculated parameters helped to determine the optimal shape of the roof.
