5D Construction seoul national university of technology
The graduate school students of the Architecture Engineering
Department of the Seoul National University of Technology
(SNUT) created a construction procedure for the Language
Automobile Plant of Kia Motors takenaka europe gmbh
SNUT students designed a 5D construction scenario and
generated 3D design models that supported constructability
review, procedure simulation, bills of material, and procurement
management. The students used Bentley’s integrated BIM
solutions from concept to operation.
This challenging project involved building an automobile
plant for Kia Motors in Slovakia, a new member country
of the European Union. The Korean client required a new
factory that would have a production capacity of 400,000
cars per year and a staff of 3,000. Total size of the site is
166 hectares, total building area is 236,548 square meters,
and total floor area is 278,506 square meters.
Several hundred team members were involved in the project
and used MicroStation to create synchronization between
high-quality design and the construction. The most significant
efficiencies from the team’s use of Bentley solutions included
fast drawing and effective communication with other formats
of the document (including DWG).
