China BIM Certification System: Helping Building Innovation and Smart Building
“China’s construction industry has achieved rapid and amazing development in the past few decades, especially in the last 20 years. However, as China’s economy enters a transition period from “high-speed growth to high-quality development”, the construction sector is standardized. Informatization and green transformation have become the key to transforming the development mode and growth momentum. BIM (Building Information Model) is an important method and core technology at this key point.” China Construction Construction Inspection and Certification Alliance Chairman, China Construction Technology Group Sun Ying, the vice president, said that the development of China's construction industry is in urgent need of providing evaluation and certification services for scientific and authoritative inspection results.
The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China proposed to establish "Digital China, Wisdom China." In the context of high-quality development, on July 3, the China BIM Certification System Conference hosted by China Engineering Construction Inspection and Testing Alliance was held in Shanghai. People from all walks of life believe that the release of the BIM certification system has far-reaching implications for condensing the wisdom of the industry and helping the industry.
BIM certification system came into being
The core of BIM lies in information, and its application is an inevitable outcome of the era of big data. As the source code of the construction industry, BIM can not only handle project-level basic data, but also bear the massive project data.
Feng Jun, vice president of China Real Estate Association, believes that BIM, as a global method and technology, can fully mobilize the enthusiasm and participation of all nodes in the industry chain, and play an informational advantage in the process of design, construction and management, and break the information barrier. Strengthen information communication, turn the uncertain factors of the construction process into certain factors, and turn the information flow of a single line into a comprehensive and related information collection, so that the project management is more scientific and the quality is more assured.
As one of the pillar industries of China's national economy, the construction industry is undergoing a rapid development of informational transformation under the impetus of modern science and technology. As a key support for change, BIM has attracted great attention from the state and the industry. In recent years, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development has successively issued a number of guiding documents such as “Guiding Opinions on Promoting the Application of Building Information Models”; in February 2017, the “Opinions on Promoting the Sustainable and Healthy Development of the Construction Industry” issued by the General Office of the State Council clearly It is proposed to accelerate the integration of building information model technology in the whole process of planning, surveying, design, construction and operation and maintenance, and realize data sharing and information management of the whole life cycle of engineering construction projects.
With the support of national policies and industry, China's BIM technology has developed rapidly. Sun Ying said that a series of standards such as “Classification and Decoding Standards for Building Information Models” and “Design and Delivery Standards for Building Information Models” have been released or will be released soon; a group of localization represented by China Architecture Design and Research Institute CBIM City Data Collaborative Brand The application software data platform is increasingly mature and is used in major engineering projects such as the Beijing City Sub-center and Xiong'an New District. In terms of construction, BIM technology serves many excellent projects such as Shanghai Center and China Zun, and has received extensive attention and praise at home and abroad. In addition, in terms of international cooperation, buildingSMART (an international non-profit organization) China Branch organizes a number of units to participate in the preparation of a number of BIM international standards; the railway BIM Alliance leads the railway IFC (Industrial Foundation) standard preparation; China Communications Construction Leading water transport IFC international standard preparation... has created a new pattern of BIM application development in China.
At the same time that BIM has achieved certain results, Sun Ying also pointed out that the current application of BIM in the industry is still in its infancy, and the level of results delivery, professional talent institutions and civil application environment are mixed. Some information even misleads industry awareness and hinders BIM development and overall industry improvement. Accordingly, the industry needs to form a consensus evaluation and certification mechanism to enhance versatility and complementarity, and form a basis for judging BIM quality testing and data reliability.
To this end, the China Engineering Construction Inspection and Testing Accreditation Alliance last year organized a team of 26 experts headed by Meng Jianmin, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, to carry out a lot of work, initially completed the formulation of China's BIM certification system structure and some implementation rules, and established China BIM. Certification technology system.
Promote production informationization and resource integration
China's BIM certification system will adhere to the principles of fairness, authority and credibility, integrate industry's superior resources, strengthen the integrity system, and provide employees with a corresponding level of competence and construction environment to ensure the BIM results of the service providers and ensure the project. The coordinated delivery of information throughout the life cycle promotes the transformation and upgrading of engineering construction information.
Feng Jun emphasized that improving the technical content, management level and quality benefits to meet the growing needs of the people for a better living is the focus of the transformation and upgrading of the real estate industry. In the process of digital promotion, the real estate industry has long been concerned with the issue of “focusing on digitalization and information communication in the consumer sector and ignoring the informationization of production.” “Marketing is of course important, but the quality, function and living safety of the houses that consumers care most about are safe and healthy. Comfort can't be solved by marketing information, but must rely on the digital economy of production."
"In view of the lack of attention and application of engineering construction in information technology and digital economy, the strategic backbone of housing development should shift from marketing to product development, construction process management and quality system assurance." Feng Jun believes that a forward-looking, consumer-oriented The fundamentally responsible housing enterprises must promote the informationization of housing design, construction and operation and maintenance, and promote the development of the traditional real estate industry to the digital economy model.
Promote a sound and fast development of the digital economy
Tan Hua, Director of the Division of Standards and Ratings Division of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, fully affirmed the role of the BIM certification system in promoting the high-quality development of the construction industry. She said that the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China proposed the construction of a strong country of science and technology, a country with strong quality, a strong country in space, a country with strong power, a country with strong power, a digital China, and a smart society. The development of the construction industry needs to be upgraded in the wave of informationization.
The person in charge of Shanghai Center Building Construction Development Co., Ltd. stated that Shanghai CITIC Building is one of the earliest projects in China to apply BIM to design and construction and carry out related research and development. The Chinese BIM certification system is of great significance here. BIM greatly improved the drawing efficiency of the project, and provided a more intuitive drawing review, design cross-section and integrated pipeline design in 3D environment. In addition, they also use BIM multi-dimensional functions to schedule construction progress, develop pre-engineered processing plans, and control construction and system commissioning through models. Shanghai Center Building has become the benchmark for the application, construction and operation of BIM technology in China's construction industry.
BIM integrates information technology such as big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things, GIS (Geographic Information System) and mobile internet to make the old construction industry redeploy resources and embark on the road of science and technology. The rapid development of science and technology has realized the symmetry of information in the construction industry, and has also led the architectural creation to architectural innovation, intelligent construction to smart construction, and the digital economy to develop well and fast. Feng Jun pointed out that the digital economy is an important engine of China's new economy and new kinetic energy. It not only changes the mode of production, but also changes the production process and production results. Extensively promoting BIM applications, using modern information technology to input new energy into the construction industry and revitalizing the new vitality of the real estate industry will eventually become an important way to achieve high quality development in line with the digital economy model.
