480 Hay Street, Perth is a $500 million mixed-use redevelopment offering a luxurious 5 star Westin hotel, office, retail and dining space options for locals and visitors alike. The project, managed by BPi, is the first of its kind in Australia to adopt a true Open BIM approach.
The project employs best of breed 3D modeling and documentation solutions such as ArchiCAD, BIMx, Solibri, Revit and Tekla. Model files are coordinated and information sharing is enabled between project participants using the latest techniques and standards such as Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) to enable timely, accurate exchanges between project participants. This Open BIM approach has eliminated proprietary lock-in and is reducing inefficiency and waste across the project.
