The expansion of a rubber mixing and tire production workshop in Zhejiang’s Anji Lingang Economic Zone covers over 80,000 square meters and features a single-story structure at a height of 14.4 meters. Based on green development and intelligent automated processes, the large-scale project presented planning, design, and construction challenges, as the complex concrete building and pipelines would be within an area 20,000 square meters smaller than traditional facilities. To meet construction goals, China Chemical Guilin Engineering sought advanced BIM technology.
They selected Bentley’s open BIM applications across all disciplines, improving productivity and shortening the design cycle. Using the software to dynamically visualize the construction process reduced on-site safety hazards and streamlined multidiscipline workflows, which is expected to shorten the construction period by 30 days. The 3D information model will be used for operations and maintenance to achieve full lifecycle BIM application and promote smart factory processes in the industry.
