Disruptive Evolving, Engineering and Planning in Wood

The project refers to the future further development of the BIM maturity level 2 to 3 and faces the challenge of how the collaboration of several users can be realised simultaneously in a shared model.

Deep uses an industry platform and its structures as an example for the realisation of the collaboration of several users simultaneously in one model. In this way, new structures for future real-time-based, cross-company and collaborative planning in timber construction can be developed and tested in a living lab. In a closedBIM approach, the "noise" of the interface problems of current BIM projects is eliminated. Disruptive here means the complete solution of previous standards. In a "white" room, the team focuses on the question: How do we want to work together in the future?
