Building Information Modelling has fundamentally changed our planning process as architects. We work exclusively on a 3D model, the digital twin of the building. Instead of a pile of blueprints, today we are on the construction site with the digital building model. Due to the increasing complexity, the building can be communicated better and the workflow can be made more precise. The aim is an integral planning, in which we architects work together with the ingeniers on teh same 3D model.

Topping out ceremony of Fire Brigade Station Hohenweiler

In order to build this fire station in the local community of 1,300 inhabitants, a compact, efficient solution was found, that connects the functional requirements and amenities of community life in an appropriate way. Two of the goals were to ensure excellent functionality and satisfaction amongst the usesrs. This could have been realised troughout an intense participation of the Hohenweiler fire brigade, not only in terms of functional concept and selections of materials, but also in terms of constructional development.
