Building Information Modelling technology installed at Istanbul New Airport

Istanbul New Airport has installed Building Information Modelling (BIM) to support processes of construction including design and engineering; project, cost and building management; facility operations; and asset management.

Yusuf Akçayoğlu, CEO of İGA Airport Constructionm said, “BIM has an important role for strategic processes by supporting the integration of all related stakeholders and all relevant disciplines, including architecture, structure, MEP, the baggage-handling system, and IT, at such a major and complex infrastructure project. Engineering, QA/QC, and the use of technology are also very critical for us.

“Therefore, at the very beginning of the project, a collaborative environment with our subcontractors was created and very well delivered by mobile tablets on-site. Since all of our engineers are technologically fully equipped, they can reach the current project models on a cloud platform, which makes a significant contribution to improved engineering quality.”

One of the principal goals is to extend the lifecycle performance and sustainability of Istanbul New Airport while utilizing BIM in facility management and operations in the next phases. The BIM adoption process has already accelerated in Turkey and the İstanbul New Airport project has become a key learning hub for the Turkish construction industry.
