Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of this subject is to inform students about problems of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for design of three professional building areas – building services, transport constructions, geotechnical and underground structures. Within the area of building services, students will learn to create digital models of technical systems including water supply, sewerage, gas pipeline, heating and air conditioning and their interconnection with other systems (eg CAFM), which can be used for planning revisions or maintenance of technological equipment. Within the area of transport constructions, students will also acquaint with geographic information systems and their using in information modelling of transport constructions. Within the area of geotechnical and underground structures, students will learn how to integrate 3D geographic information systems (GIS) data based on geotechnical survey, 3D CAD data and results from the specialized 3D simulation geotechnical software into the BIM system.

Teaching methods

Project work


The subject deals with BIM issues with an emphasis on the application in the fields of Building Services, Transport Constructions and Geotechnical and Undergrounding Engineering. In the part of the subject about using of BIM in field of Building Services, students will learn step by step how to create and modify a spatial model of a building, including all technical installations, from which they can easily get 2D documentation, as well as realistic visualizations. Next part of this subject informs students about using of BIM in field of Transport Constructions. For understanding of this process, it is also necessary to be well informed in problem of geographic information systems which is related to BIM closely. In the next part of the subject the usage of BIM in the field of Geotechnics and Underground Engineering will be focused. Attention will be paid to the issues of geographic information systems and their interconnection with software for designing and simulating the behaviour of geotechnical and underground structures.
