Talks for new inspirations, ideas and impulses about BIM

Just before the year ends three colleagues from DGI took the opportunity to participate in the BIM Camp preview. This was the initial trial for an open gathering, where interested architects and planners can have an exchange about BIM – without a fixed agenda or moderation. The contents are developed on-site and processed in small groups. At the Beta BIM Camp 2018 the participants talked about the option of data exchange, the question of how BIM changes our thinking and the connection between creativity and BIM.

This November the fire prevention team of DGI Bauwerk visited the fire department and the northern department for fire prevention in Berlin-Marzahn.

One of the firefighters led the colleagues through the Berlin-Marzahn fire station, reported on the work processes and experiences of active use and explained the technical equipment of the vehicles. Going up the 30 metres high turntable ladder was literally the highlight of the day.

In a discussion with two department managers of preventive fire protection, important questions and background facts on the organisation of the directorates, the conditions of fire extinguishing processes in growing cities and on fire protection on construction sites were clarified, which are of great interest to the specialist planners of DGI.

Top View of the Construction Site.

A new research building the Centre for Light Construction and Environmentally Compatible Building [ZELUBA] will be built on the campus of the TU Braunschweig by the end of 2019. A high single-storey test facility hall and the three-storey laboratory and office building are arranged slightly offset from one another and connected to each other via a foyer.
The view of the construction site shows that the foundation of the hall construction and the construction of the earthquake test rig have already been completed so that the sole can be concreted shortly. The foundations, lift underpasses and technical areas in the basement are completed in the batten construction.
The Centre for Light Construction and Environmentally Compatible Building is an initiative of the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research [Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institut, WKI], the Technical University [TU] Braunschweig and the Institute for Concrete Structures and Fire Protection of the TU Braunschweig [iBMB].

Initiative 'Buzludzha Project'

Initiative ‘Buzludzha Project’

Bulgarian Ministry of Culture will accelerate the procedure of Monument Designation to Buzludzha Monument.

During the inspection of the monument the experts were amazed by its striking and outstanding modern architecture which is of European value and were alarmed by its derelict condition. The delegates were impressed by the creativity and the skills used to create the monument, namely the craftsmanship for the mosaics and marble, and its beautiful natural setting. The experts acknowledged that Buzludzha is part of the collective memory of Bulgaria and Europe and therefore its preservation is of European significance.
The nomination was made by the Buzludzha Project Foundation, represented by the architect Ms. Dora Ivanova, who has been leading the initiative for the preservation of the monument since 2015. The key findings and recommendations of the mission will be published in a report by the end of 2018.
