Fiumicino Airport – Avancorpo
The Fiumicino Airport Development Plan envisaged the construction of two new boarding areas (E and F), designed to improve the flow of passengers and to guarantee new systems for the control and sorting of baggage and goods.
The project for Fiumicino “Leonardo Da Vinci” Airport provides for the redevelopment and expansion of its current facilities, in order to align itself with the major international airports and ensure greater functionality at the service of travelers. The new intervention will focus on an area of 75.200 square meters and will consist of two structures, which will integrate new gates with shopping areas, service areas, new restaurants and airline lounges. The project for the first building, the E Boarding Area, consists of an expansion of the current Terminal 3, a historical pre-existence dating back to the 1960s. The project involves the expansion of the Terminal, through distinctive features both in the general architectural image and in the quality of the interior spaces. This is to improve the travelers’ experience and guarantee a total capacity of 5 million passengers a year.
The project was entrusted by Aeroporti di Roma (ADR) to Cimolai, which availed itself of the collaboration of BIMon, the partner firm of REACT, for the coordination and implementation in BIM during the construction phases.
Through the activity of BIM Management, BIMon took care of the multidisciplinary coordination of the construction site, supporting the companies in the preparation of the documents necessary for the progress of the project. With the use of the IFC interchange format it was possible to coordinate models realized with different software, identifying and solving the interference before the realization phase. In this way the BIM models coming from Tekla Structures, ArchiCAD and Revit have been brought together in a single work environment, allowing the different disciplines to be integrated through a unique language. The BIM Management activity then ensured communication between the various parties involved, providing updated, interchangeable and accessible information. This process has allowed to drastically reduce errors, avoiding interruptions or delays during construction activities.
