Considerations When Creating a 3D Project Drawing


The following are the key points to be taken into account by the author responsible for design tasks while developing 3D projects to be used in Design, Construction, and Operation processes, in order to ensure the healthy execution of BIM processes:


  1. During the design process, design software that allows export in IFC file format should be used.
  2. It is expected that regions and disciplines are defined within the design file. The elements within the model should also be defined in the same manner. This approach makes the workspace more understandable and enables more efficient use of the model. If necessary, these regions and disciplines can also be modeled in separate design files. For example, A Block Architectural – B Block Structural – C Block Facade…
  3. In models containing elements like blocks, stations, disciplines, etc., a connection should be established with the main model. Then, coordinates should be assigned to the models according to the site plan, or the design should be carried out with all disciplines based on the same starting point. Otherwise, the IFC exports obtained from the program will have incorrect coordinates.
  4. During modeling, parameters such as Type Mark, Position Number, Mark ID, etc. of the elements need to be entered in a suitable manner for the project. If necessary, as the work schedule and material selections are determined, new parameters can be added to the model. Detailed definition of parameters for elements within the model will facilitate the management of processes. It is important that these definitions use a common code system across all disciplines (see: BEP – BIM Execution Plan).
  5. In tasks such as flooring, facade walls, excavation, landscape elements, etc., elements within the model should be designed with minimum size, considering different construction methods. For instance, a 500m3 floor slab can be poured all at once according to the concrete pouring plan, or it can be poured in multiple phases. In this case, if there is a possibility that the contractor might not pour the entire floor slab at once, the floor slab should be designed with the minimum size.
  6. In the BIM model, floor parameters hold significant importance for proper task tracking. The correct functioning of filters depends on the compatibility of floor parameters across different disciplines. It is important that these definitions use a common code system across all disciplines (see: BEP – BIM Execution Plan).

7D BIM: Sustainability

7D BIM: Sustainability


Sustainability is a concept that is used quite frequently today, but is not always understood correctly. The concept of sustainability is to use resources in a way that does not harm or endanger the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It’s about finding ways to live and prosper without causing environmental degradation or depletion of natural resources.

Buildings consume high energy throughout their entire life cycle and cause high carbon emissions. High-Performance Building and Net-Zero Energy Building approaches have emerged in the construction industry to reduce the energy need of buildings.



  • Picture 1: Green Building Concept


BIM can be used in many different ways to improve sustainability in buildings:

  •  BIM allows us to simulate the energy performance of a building at the project stage, enabling us to design energy-efficient structures.
  •  BIM can be used to select construction materials with a lower environmental impact. BIM assesses the embodied energy and global warming potential of different materials, helping to select products with a smaller ecological footprint.
  •  BIM can be used to evaluate the feasibility of renewable energy systems. BIM can help determine whether a particular site is suitable for solar panels or wind turbines by modeling factors such as sun exposure, wind speed and shading.
  •  By enabling the creation of digital twins of structures, BIM can help verify that sustainable buildings are functioning as intended by monitoring energy use, water consumption and waste generation throughout a building’s lifecycle.
  •  BIM coordinates cost planning, design, construction and production. It also enables manufacturers to create more accurate features off-site. As a result, the amount of waste is minimized, overordering is avoided and natural resources are conserved.

Picture 2 : Tracking the sunlight hitting the building during the day.

Various structures using sustainable BIM in the design process:

  • Istanbul Airport

The airport, designed using BIM, also includes a rainwater harvesting system that collects and recycles rainwater for use in toilets and irrigation, a gray water treatment plant that recycles water from sinks and showers for use in landscape irrigation, and a solar energy system that balances the airport’s energy consumption by 10%.

  • Baku National Stadium

The stadium was built with the BIM methodology and designed to be as energy efficient as possible. The stadium’s roof is made of ETFE (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene), a highly translucent material that helps reduce energy consumption by allowing natural light to enter the stadium. The stadium also has a rainwater harvesting system that collects rainwater and recycles it for use in the stadium’s toilets and irrigation system.
The number of BIM-based applications in the world is increasing rapidly, regulations have been published in many countries on this subject. In Turkey, on the other hand, preparations for regulations are made in this regard. In our country, BIM is actively used in many qualified projects, especially in airports, rail systems and hospitals.
Thanks to our BIMCRONE product, which was developed with the BIM approach, which enables the production of better projects with process optimization and enables sustainable practices in the construction sector, we continue to serve in this field as the industry leader on both a national and international scale.

Considerations While Doing Revit Modeling

Considerations While Doing Revit Modeling

Compliance with BIM (Building Information Modeling) standards while modeling Revit ensures that the model is created and managed accurately and effectively. BIM standards ensure consistency and efficiency among all stakeholders throughout a project. In order to model in accordance with BIM standards, it is recommended to pay attention to the following points:


Making necessary preparations before starting modelling: There are predetermined standards and guidelines for BIM projects. Starting to model by following these can prevent bigger problems from occurring in the future.
Paying attention to adequate level of detail: In BIM projects, the level of detail is an important factor affecting the quality and accuracy of the model made. Insufficient detail may cause the model to be incompatible with the real world. For example, the partitions should be modeled according to the concrete pouring plan. A model element that has no connection with reality causes the process to be disrupted.
Processing sufficient data to the elements: During modeling, all parameters of the element must be entered in accordance with the project. WBS, Pos No, Mark ID etc. The presence of many parameters in the elements plays a great role in facilitating BIM processes.
Data standard compliance: Data standard compliance is important in BIM projects. Different components and data types conforming to different standards can break the consistency of the data in the model. Types should be properly adjusted and used for their intended purpose.
Correct selection of building materials: In BIM projects, material properties are an important factor affecting the accuracy of modeling and the accuracy of analysis. Incorrect selection of building materials may cause misleading data in the model. It is necessary to model the element in the project in accordance with its characteristics.
Mistakes in managing changes made: BIM projects can make mistakes in the process because team members need to monitor and manage changes. For example, improper documentation of a change or deletion of a component can affect the accuracy of the model. In a revision to an element, deleting and remodeling that element may cause all historical data of the deleted element to be deleted.
Finding the building blocks in their coordinates: The drawn block – station etc. After linking the masses to the main model, it is necessary to assign their coordinates to the models according to the site plan. Otherwise, ifc exports from the program will have the wrong coordinates.

BIM Usage of Highway Projects

There is currently steady and growing use of innovative digital technologies to design and construct capital highway projects and to monitor their condition and performance. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is gaining rapid acceptance in several infrastructure industries, including highway transportation.

In general terms, the earlier a decision is made in a business process, the greater its potential positive impact on important project variables, such as cost and time, as can be seen from the MacLeamy diagram .

For example, reviewing a planned motorway route in a realistic 3D environment with all the necessary indicators such as intersections and structures, in what can be called the information phase, can have a decisive impact on preventing complex and costly changes in the construction phase. Throughout the further design process, the designers should maintain a balance between the scope, schedule and cost – in line with the client’s budget and requirements. Any change can cost money and waste time. Traditional design methods usually require significant time and effort to produce cost estimates and scheduling information. However, with the use of BIM, all the schedules, quantities and other vital information are immediately can be taken. This simplification puts the designer and project team firmly in control over the accuracy of the design process, eliminates painstaking manual verification and improves cost efficiency and collaboration

As the project goes into detailed design, a huge amount of data will be form. Upon completion of the project, the twin digital model is forwarded to the contractor. The BIM model improves the transfer of data between designers and contractors as well. The amount of information delivered in this way, as well as its systematic organization, is far better than standard CAD project documentation printed on paper.



First BIM contracts showed a reduction in the number of change orders (%2-%12). BIM implementation increased awareness within the organization for the need to standardize data exchanges. The BIM application increased awareness among the project teams to verify the data coming from the construction to the project and from there to the technical offices. Document lead times have been reduced by five times compared to traditional processes.

Above, there is a survey study conducted for teams in managerial positions in a highway project. According to this survey, BIM methodology in highway projects;

1) By providing the most benefit, visuality allows us to have a healthier idea about the course of the project.

2) It increases coordination and cooperation in a multidisciplinary sector.

3) Design optimization can be provided to minimize revisions.

4) It reveals the mistakes made in the design.

5) You have the chance to experience a simulation of the construction beforehand

6) Very fast changes can be made on the 3D model.

7) It can effectively share data between multidisciplines.

8) All stakeholders involved in the project can follow all updates on a single model.

9) A more organized system and speed are provided in data sharing with less paper work.

Which Types of Projects Do We Encounter Frequently in the Construction Industry?

There are 4 types of projects that we see during the construction of a building. These are static architectural mechanical and electrical projects. The purpose of the architectural project is shaped by considering the wishes of the building users. The purpose of the static project is to make the architectural project in a way that is not affected by the building’s transportation system. Then, mechanical installation and electrical projects come in accordance with this architectural and static project.

1-Statical Project


Static projects are made by civil engineers in accordance with architectural projects. Scales are prepared according to the structure and size. All floor plans, sections and details are calculated in accordance with the types of steel, masonry, reinforced concrete and similar structures.

2- Architectural Projects


Architectural project; It consists of the site plan prepared by the architects, all floor plans including the basement floors, the roof plan and at least two sections and a sufficient number of views, system sections and point details when necessary.

3-Mechanical Projects


A lot of work is required in order to prepare the mechanical installation project. The characteristics of the architectural structure should be taken into account by calculating the heat losses of application materials such as brick Ytong. In this context, it is expected that the mechanical needs of the building, such as heating and cooling, will be met with engineering merits.


4-Electrical Project

Electrical installation project; These are the projects that will meet the electrical needs of the building, prepared by electrical engineers in accordance with the architectural project, and the electrical internal installations for the strong and weak currents, the scales of which are determined according to the size and characteristics of the building.

What Makes BIMCRONE Different ?

When we look at the construction sector, inefficiency is almost tangible and visible. According to statistics, the rate of inefficiency in construction projects is 47%, and the rate of projects with delays is around 60%. Even for a relatively small building, the data collected over its life cycle can be, as you can imagine, a very big data. Monitoring and controlling such a volume of data is extremely difficult. The size of the problem increases exponentially in companies working on many projects at the same time. The solution to this problem with the common mind all over the world is digitalization. There are different software or software groups to create a common data platform in the industry and to offer a digital project management solution. BIMCRONE, which started its journey as an R&D project, attaches importance to differentiation while feeding from its valuable competitors. BIMCRONE’s value proposition has four competitive advantages that we want to offer as most important:

1-BIMCRONE considers the life cycle of buildings as a whole

By creating a digital twin of a project, BIMCRONE provides its users with up-to-date information with different functions that will benefit from the planning phase of the building, construction, operation, restoration and even demolition and recycling processes. Stores, reuses and recommends detailed data of the structure on a single platform.

2- BIMCRONE integrates the data and keeps it on the model


BIMCRONE makes it possible to view real-time information on a single platform, from material details used on each wall of a building, to delay reports, and even the percentage of construction progress at any given moment. When choosing any structural element on the 3D model, the quantity, timing, cost, etc. In addition to information, you can easily access corporate archive and projection data.

3-BIMCRONE executes the construction project in 360°


BIMCRONE is a collaboration environment. It allows the information produced by different teams to be accessed instantly with other teams depending on their roles and authorities. The data pool that can be accessed by contractors, design teams, field teams, audit teams, managers, technical offices and subcontractors provides a sharing environment. In fact, other stakeholders of the project such as public institutions, finance, insurance can easily access this information when necessary and follow the development of the project on the same platform.


4-BIMCRONE is user friendly.

BIMCRONE has the most user-friendly interface and makes it easy for team members with various technical backgrounds to use. It has various language options including Turkish. BIMCRONE works like a business partner, not just a software solution. It pays attention to knowledge sharing, experience transfer and joint development among the teams it works with.

Levels of BIM

We mentioned that the goal with Building Information Modeling (BIM) is to prepare and sustain the digital twin of the building. There are two different categories for determining the BIM status of companies and projects, sizing and leveling. I will touch on the size issue in another post, this post is about leveling.

So what is this leveling issue?

Leveling over BIM is measured by taking into account the fact that the information about the structure is in the electronic environment and the rate of working together of the teams.

BIM Level 0 :

It is the situation where there is only a 2D drawing of the structure and no digital content is produced or recorded.

There is no data sharing between teams. It is the case where all stakeholders follow the project components through paper outputs in separate copies (versions).

BIM Level 1 :

It is the level where the 3D drawing of the structure exists and limited data is produced electronically.

It is the scenario where there is no data sharing between the teams and the team/stakeholders follow the project information through their own copies.

BIM Level 2 :

3D architectural plan, business plan, etc. of the building. It is the situation in which information about the structure is produced, stored and tracked electronically.

It is the method in which data sharing between teams is done with transferable file types. Any updated data is transferred to all stakeholders via e-mail, ftp, server, etc. There is no simultaneous sharing of information between teams.

BIM Level 3 :

It is the situation in which all critical information such as 3D architectural plan, business plan and cost-quantity from the components of the building are electronically produced, stored and followed.

It is a complete collaboration between teams. It is the state of producing the same data in a complete integrity and together, where all teams can see the same data in its latest and updated form from the same environment.

This level is called openBIM, it is the ideal and top BIM level.

BIMCRONE is a solution that provides service at BIM 3 level, with the ability to access the digital contents of the structure from a single environment. With its mobile version, it allows to receive construction site data instantly, and to integrate all data with cloud infrastructure. It allows all users, from the construction site to the technical office, from the contractor to the top management, to access the same data with different authorizations.
