BUILDING DESIGN COORDINATION: COMPARING 2D AND 3D METHODS

Abstract: Coordination of Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) systems among themselves and with the architectural, structural and other building systems is an important, challenging and time consuming task on the design phase of multistory buildings. Many researchers have already expressed a critical view on the most widely adopted coordination process, which makes use of transparent trade drawings overlapped on a light table for detecting conflicts. The use of a 2D CAD system is nothing but a direct replacement for paper drawings and light table, not considerably changing the method. The authors of this paper, like others, advocate the use of 3D CAD for the coordination process as a more apt tool for this spatial task. Two studies were conducted to compare the performance of a 2D CAD-based coordination method to that of a 3D CAD supported process, both in terms of efficiency and efficacy. Both methods used 2D CAD drawings as input but the three dimensional process required subsequent solid modeling of all relevant building systems. Even with this additional burden, the 3D-based method outperformed the traditional one. Results show its higher efficiency as there was a significant decrease in the time spent for detecting interferences during the development of a masonry production design in an experimental study. The higher number of conflicts revealed in the plumbing design for a multistory building demonstrated also its increased efficacy in a case study.

COST DATABASE SYSTEM APPLIED TO REFURBISHMENT OF SOCIAL HOUSING IN BRAZILIAN CONTEXT

Abstract: In Brazil, low income people haven’t a good way or help to preview the budget to their projects, especially concerning to build or refurbish their houses. Moved by this lack of opportunity, this paper describes briefly the work carried out to give to this public a system prepared in Internet basis which help them to calculate more precisely the necessary funds to implement this kind of investment.Some questions emerge: How to communicate data to the Database System related to the planed build or related to the changes desired to be applied in a house existed? The Database System needs to keep cost data of new constructions and data of refurbished constructions since the costs are very different due to the different nature of the job? How to update costs of lots of items turning the system reliable?These and other critical questions will be answered along this work and we hope that, starting from a small and specific problem we spread the possibilities of this system, reaching a level of having real helpful tools. Reaching this level, the material produced can turn a seed of more complete and helpful systems.Computational technological support of the purposed system will be IFC, PHP and MySQL.
