BIM coordinate for The Landmark 81 Building

In which, 5-star hotel Vinpearl has 450 rooms, with the best luxury president room being 1000m2 in the area and have a 360 degrees view around a city. There are about 900 Vinhomes luxury apartments and Officetel Trade luxury apartments. The building is designed by Atkins, who has been the main designer of major projects like Bahrain World Trade Center, King Abdulaziz International Airport at Arup Saudi, Lotus Hotel in Shanghai.  In this project Arup the structural engineers who have designed structures such as the Opera Syney Theatre and Centre Pompidou at Paris.

Conceptually, the unique architecture of The Landmark 81 project is a rooftop created by “bamboo tubes”, providing green spaces for relaxing and sightseeing. With environment consideration as a focus, the message from Vingroup – 'the best investor in Vietnam'.

The building is eco-friendly

• The green building saves energy

• Using a clean water system process originating from Europe for each apartment.

Landmark 81 has won the 2016 Building of the Year at International Property Awards ' Integrating BIM into a Project'. 

Integrating BIM into the project.

The building was ground breaks on December 13, 2014, and is scheduled to be inaugurated in 2018, with attendees:

Investor - Tan Lien Phat Construction Investment Corporation.

Project Manager - Vincom 1 Construction Management LLC

Project manager consultant - Mace Vietnam co. ltd

Body constractor - Cotecons Corp

Cotecons is the body contractor of the project had applied BIM into a project for detailed design in the complex areas. Field of application is all building formwork structure. 

Coteccons had applied BIM into a project for detailed design in the complex areas. Field of application is all building formwork structure. This project has mega complex structure, which integrates concrete rebar and I steel frame, especially in the transfer floor from 4th to 6th floor.  BIM application is to model intersection and simulate installation progress for the transfer areas detail between steel columns and reinforced concrete beams at 6th floor. 

This is area combine complex structure; with a typical designed that composite crossly steel column and framing with reinforced concrete structure. Cotecons had used Tekla Structure to design and coordinate all of the disciplines’ structure in this area. That help Cotecons get optimum design solutions, efficient construction progress and publish directly exact shop drawing from Tekla model for a construction site.

This area has high crossed and multi-structured steel density, therefore traditional design methods can’t be an efficient solution in communication between designs team - construction team. Coordination activities at site construction have been visualized by models. All of the relative participants can exchange information for the most exact and effective solution, help to decrease the time of changes and re-work when construction, ensure contract period, labor safety and save cost for a project.

Thank for BIM application, construction team doesn't meet any difficulty to complete this pretty complex field.  

To ensure the solidified structure, steel structural systems for the elevator areas are not designed in Rectangular Prism as usual, which are Y-shaped – the new design. Therefore, with the traditional coordinate, the construction team cost so many time to understand, look for solutions, but can’t ensure that they clarify the idea of a designer.

The Landmark 81 will become the highest skyscraper in Vietnam upon 2018 and be a symbol of the country's spirit, history, and culture. This is the expectation of not only investor and relative participants but also Vietnamese around the world. We hope the project will be the success story and meet contract schedule. Absolutely, with a complex project, the benefit of BIM will be a great story
