Midas Construction Ltd & Pinnacle Infotech were responsible for creating the 3D Model of Student Accommodation Building in Univer-sity of Bath, Claverton Down, Bath, BA27AY, comprising of 6 oors, including ground for post graduate students on the west side of campus, spread over 6561.15 sq. mt., consider-ing the exterior shell, core, structural founda-tion, slab and column. The model was under-taken as part of the tender exercise. The purpose was to design and construct a new 293 bed student accommodation building comprising of car parking, gym, meeting suite, cycle & bin stores, communal lounges, kitchen, student lounge and balcony. The site is located within the existing University campus.

Standards/Processes Considered:

Building dynamics:Pinnacle created mass model of existing Student Accommodation central building adjacent to the corner buildings

Timeline Challenge - Delivering 3D Modeling within a week, 4D Phasing animation within 2 weeks & Final animated video within 3 weeks

Solution - Pinnacle employed expert engineers using Autodesk Revit to deliver BIM Models & animations on time

Delivery formats:

Challenges & Solution

BIM facilitated design disciplines to collabo-rate awlessly as single information platform, enhancing work eciency, reducing errors, verifying aesthetic looks and improving building performance.

Using Autodesk BIM, Pinnacle could easily produce the models with various cutaways and complex geometry. The 4D animation helped in identifying any aw in the construc-tion program and also helped in utilising the animation for marketing presentation to the client.

BIM Process Identied Several Constructa-bility Issues: Autodesk BIM helped to identify constructability issues during tender stage. Pinnacle Team reviewed critical areas in 3D for any changes made and evaluated space constraint successfully.

Project Feedback from Midas

Pinnacle Customer Success Story Pinnacle Infotech

4D simulation helped to visualize the whole series of construction events and understand the progress of construction activities through-out the lifetime of the project

Pinnacle linked project construction sequenc-ing to BIM model and showed the real time simulation of construction sequence in an animated video, which helped client to visualize actual construction schedule based on 4D presentation

This was our rst tender with Pinnacle and we are pleased with the nal result. Despite the distance the team was always very prompt with their replies and kept us updated on their progress at all times, as agreed in the delivery schedule. They understood what was required of them and had a good knowledge of the

Value Addition:

Autodesk BIM software helped Midas Construc-tion Ltd. & Pinnacle Infotech to visualize the project during the Tendering stage with respect to Construction process being planned and also helped in rening the planning in advance.


Happy Client:

Mr. Biprajit Nag, Assistant General Manager, Pinnacle Infotech said - Revit helped us predict the perfor-mance of the building before its built. Design visualizations such as 3d views, photo-realistic renderings and animated walk-through have eec-tively communicated 3D design and helped to explore, validate and convey design concepts. Purpose-built visualization tool like Autodesk 3Ds Max delivered the extra realism and special animation eects charac-terizing todays visualizations renderings worthy of an art gallery, animated walk-through and y-bys. State-of-the-art 3Ds Max expanded the visual context of the design concept for the Student Accommo-dation Building in Bath, United Kingdom for more eective valida-tion & communication.

3DS Max helped us to enhance the quality of animation. Revit &3DS Max applications are used to add critical ingredient for convincing visualizations. The ease & delity of transferring the Revit platform building information model to 3Ds MAX signicantly reduced the time & cost to produce the visualiza-tion. added Mr. Subhranil Chatter-jee, Deputy Manager, Pinnacle Infotech.
