Abu Dhabi, UAE, 26. November 2013. RIB Software AG and Al Darwish Engineering W.L.L., have signed a Phase I agreement to implement the iTWO model based end-to-end construction platform for the construction of the new Engineering College Complex at Qatar University with a budget of approx. 137 Mio. USD.
Al Darwish Engineering W.L.L in conjunction with Qatar University plans to leverage RIB’s new approach to 5D end-to-end construction process integration that optimizes the use of CAD data by integrating the virtual into the physical process at each step of the construction lifecycle. Qatar University comprises seven colleges: Arts and Sciences; Business and Economics; Education; Engineering; Law; Pharmacy and currently boasts a population of over 15,000 students. The new Engineering College Complex will be the first completely BIM oriented construction development for the University, taking full advantage of BIM 5D by implementing iTWO technology through the construction execution life-cycle. This project will serve as a template for upcoming major construction projects under the University expansion program.
“We are proud of delivering iTWO to Al Darwish Engineering in support of their construction of this exciting project for Qatar University”, said Chris Williams, Managing Director RIB Middle East. ” Al Darwish Engineering will now have an environment where integrated 5D BIM processes will provide a unique level of transparency for each project team member and value-added benefits for the company and Qatar University as a whole.”
