The internal BIM-Championship hosted by SPbGASU was held on April 20-27, 2021. The awarding ceremony took place on April 27 in the Scientific Council Hall of the university.
54 students, split into six teams, were taking part in the Championship. All week long they competed in designing a consumer services centre including tailor shops, repair shops, beauty salons, etc. The area of 2,912 square meters was to accommodate the utility systems, a parking lot, emergency routes and passageways for fire fighting vehicles, landscaping elements and the building itself. We asked the students why they decided to participate in the championship.
“For me, this is a challenge to myself: learning new things, completing a task under a tight deadline is really cool. The essence of the BIM championship is in self-education, first of all,” believes Anna Baranova, a fifth-year student of the Faculty of Civil Engineering.
“It is interesting for me to try working in a team together with other students. This is a great experience of interaction with guys from other faculties in a real design case when you have to think of something you have not thought about before: where the pipes will be laid, and how everything will be installed,” shared her impressions Elina Zubaidullina, a first-year Master’s student of the Faculty of Architecture.
The Championship jury consisted of the university professors, managers and leading specialists from construction companies. They evaluated the teams’ work by various criteria.
Team BIM-Power won the first place receiving in total 682 points.
The second prize – the team Wallki (602 points).
The third prize – the team SPBIM (562 points).
“Every year the quality of the students’ projects is increasing and it is harder for jury to select the winners. This year the teams had a very slight difference in the points they were awarded by the jury”, – said Inna Sukhanova, BIM-ICE Project manager.
The winners got the internship invitations from the companies – BIM-Championship partners. Besides, they will be take part in the next All-Russian BIM-Championship in autumn 2021.
The internal BIM-Championship is held within the WP2 of the BIM-ICE Project. We are looking forward to the next stage of the BIM-Championship this autumn!
