Chandigarh – With a strong focus on innovation and use of advanced technology, Airport Authority of India (AAI) – has identified BIM (Building Information Modeling)as the design and planning platform for construction of the New Integrated Terminal Building (NITB) of Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati.The new 90,000 Sqmts terminal, will have 64 check-in counters, 20 self-check-in desks, eight Immigration counters, eight custom counters, six arrival carousels, 10 escalators, 25 elevators, 16 self-baggage drop counters and 20 aircraft parking bays.
Architecture Firm, Design Forum International (DFI) and AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm have leveraged Autodesk BIM solution, Revit to design the NITB of the airport. Autodesk Revit will help to enhance collaboration ofthe entire project team- from design, fabrication, and construction to operations and maintenance – to make informed decisions from a common point of understanding.
Commenting on this development, Mr Sunil MK, Head of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) at Autodesk, India & SAARC said, “With the decision to use BIM on such a massive infrastructure project, Airport Authority of India is fueling a paradigm change in the future of construction. We, at Autodesk, are excited to be part of this project as the technology provider. Our cutting-edge BIM platform, will enable better design and construction efficiency, lower cost and less negative impact on the environment.”
