2021/07/05: MBO2BIM - Digitization of the Model Building Code: Preparation for BIM-based inspection tools

A few months ago, a research project for the digitalization of the German building code template (MBO) has been launched together with the City of Hamburg and is funded by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt). Within a BIM-based building permit process the results of the project shall enable the authorities to perform rule-based code compliance checking, as well as enabling the applicants to perform this checking already before submission.

2021/06/28: Building Concrete Monitoring (BCOM) with Liu Liu

Liu Liu has been a research assistant at the chair since March 2020. She studied civil engineering at the Technical University of Cologne. She then went into practice and later studied civil engineering at the RUB in parallel in the master's program. Today she is a member of the projects AMSFREE and BIM4AMS. Furthermore, together with Philipp Hagedorn, she has developed a Building Concrete Monitoring (BCOM) ontology for construction.
