Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Planning and management of major projects

Using classical planning methods, the steadily growing requirements concerning buildings projects are less and less controllable. Therefore ahw engineers increasingly focus their efforts on the model based work method BIM.

We have recognized at early stage, that BIM is the future in planning, realisation and operation of building projects. BIM can be scaled from an island sollution for structure planning up to a contiuous companion throughout all phases in the life cycle of a building. By networking of all specialist disciplines a transparent planning is enabled. Sorces of errors, collisions or discrepancies are detected at an early stage and coordinated via linked models.

To grow with the advances and opportunities of the new technology, ahw engineers constantly undertake training. Besides our BIM coordination team consisting of certified BIM professionals, our employees attend software-specific training and certification courses.

Ahw engineers participate in work groups of buildingSMART e. V. to develop the potentials of digitalization and BIM procedures. Besides one of the speakers of the national expert group in structure planning, we also provide a speaker at local level in the regional group Ostwestfalen-Lippe, Münster, Osnabrück and the representation of this group in BIM Cluster NRW.

As we want to help promoting BIM, we get involved by giving lectures at universities and at various professional events.

We rely on sound experience from various BIM projects, some of which were handled openly (open BIM) and some native (closed BIM). Besides the author software Nemetschek Allplan and Autodesk Revit we also master several test and communication software such as Solibri and BIMcollab.


  • Significantly increased flexibility
  • Cost controls during the design phase
  • Complex requirements become calculable
  • Faster, more precise exchange of information
  • Virtual management in all phases
  • Cost reductions
