Shanghai tower and BIM

  • Shanghai tower and BIM
Seen as a future landmark of Shanghai, the Shanghai Tower aims to showcase cutting-edge sustainable design concepts. Along with BIM technology and processes in practice.

The Shanghai Tower is a remarkable story about the advantages of BIM for the whole project lifecycle, as well as the growing momentum for owner-driven BIM projects.

At the time of its completion, the Shanghai Tower will be the tallest building in China and the second-tallest in the world, surpassed only by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It will also become China's tallest structure of any kind, surpassing the 600-metre (2,000 ft) Canton Tower in Guangzhou. However, in February 2012, it was reported that another Chinese skyscraper, the Wuhan Greenland Financial Center, might be redesigned to reach a height of 636 metres (2,087 ft), thus exceeding the height of the Shanghai Tower.

Below is a great video produced by Autodesk which showcases the design process and the Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools being used.
