And the Winner is... HOCHTIEF ViCon is BIM Champion 2022!



On May 3, 2022, the BIM Champions 2022 were awarded by buildingSMART Germany in a ceremony in Dresden, presenting the outstanding works and the creators behind the projects.

Our team from HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions and HOCHTIEF ViCon won the competition in the operation/maintenance category with the "Digital Twin for Motorway Operation". The jury was impressed by our innovative approach to BIM in operation with a central information model and selected use cases in the A6 highway PPP project.

HOCHTIEF is responsible for the six-lane expansion of the A6 freeway between the Weinsberger Kreuz interchange and Wiesloch/Rauenberg and for 30 years of operation and maintenance. Our team from HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions and HOCHTIEF ViCon has mapped the entire route with all structures and ancillary facilities in a management model, thus creating a digital twin. All information from the planning, construction and operating phases is made available here in a structured and networked form. This data can be analyzed intelligently and used for subsequent processes. Numerous use cases such as defect recording or accident management take advantage of this and provide new information at the same time.

"BIM has not yet fully arrived in the management of structures. Our years of work in the planning and construction phases and the essential data networking have paid off and form the basis for use cases of a digital twin in operation," says René Schumann, Managing Director, HOCHTIEF ViCon.

With the digital twin, long-term, innovative solutions have been created here for our colleagues in operations for lifecycle management. "BIM only unfolds its full effect over the life cycle. That is precisely our approach. With the Digital Twin and the associated use cases, we can provide optimum support for our projects," says Dr. Daniela Schäfer, Head of BIM/TIE, HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions.

HOCHTIEF ViCon is one of the pioneers of BIM, Building Information Modeling, the all-round digitally supported construction.
