BIM Technology in Application of Structure Construction in Hubei Olympic Sports Center


Steel structures
Technology and management
Complex joints




With the rapid development of modern large-span and large-complex steel structure buildings, at present the Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology plays an important role from the design to the construction of a building. This study takes the Comprehensive Gymnasium of Hubei Olympic Sports Center as the carrier and introduce the BIM technology from two aspects; The technology; and the management. Further, the optimal application of BIM technology in the complex component nodes, the technical guidance of component processing, and the correction and verification of drawings were emphatically analyzed in this paper. An engineering practice shows that the application of BIM technology has greatly improved the production efficiency, shortened the construction period, reduced unnecessary cost, and lastly laid a solid foundation for the smooth completion of the project.
