The Center for Rhythmic Gymnastics project, by Moscow-based CPU Pride, won the “BIM 2016” Russian competition in the “BIM project: sports facilities” category. The project clearly demonstrates the successful use of the OPEN BIM approach in its design. “During the initial stage, we created a preliminary concept rather quickly, consisting of several completely different solutions, such as extraordinary forms, or a more geometric appearance maintaining a clear rhythm of the façade. We were able to develop the first 3D model in less than a month,” says chief architect of the Pride company, Elena Myznikova. The project is an excellent case study for the OPEN BIM approach.

One of the most important priorities for the company is the widespread use of building information modeling technologies. Performing complex tasks requires a comprehensive BIM solution that can serve as the principal tool for coordinating the work of architects, designers, and engineers of all related specialties. BIM technology provides an integrated design approach throughout all the stages of the building life cycle.

The desire to offer customers unique architectural solutions and the ability to implement complex tasks was prompted by the company’s management and resulted in the implementation of ARCHICAD: a program that doesn’t require a time-consuming setup.
