Project Management Master Thesis
Master Thesis Project Management
The aim of my thesis work is to test an innovative approach based on Building Information Modelling (BIM) methodology for Infrastructure design. Starting from. the documentation provided by A.N.A.S, the company that manages the Italian road and motorway network, it was possible to test the process by referring it to a particular case study: Gallery Serra Rotonda of the new A3 motorway in Basilicata.
My interest on the subject is due to the fact that BIM methodology should provide an important opportunity for process optimization, as well as to facilitate the project, introducing higher quality and at the same time a cost saving. Thanks to a management of the entire life cycle, all the projects that use a BIM based approach allow to evaluate different scenarios, identify and anticipate risks and opportunities acting in real time.
After careful analysis of documentation provided by ANAS, thesis work is divided into three main phases:
Master Thesis Project Cargo Management
Testing BIM on Serlone, in Locana Valley, had the aims to provide an alternative and transferable method to design and modeling hamlets through parametric software and offer suggestions to use the model during the phases of recovery.
Thanks to the management and elaboration of the inserted graphic data in the model, it was possible to obtain a general complete framework of Serlone’s real state representing the starting point to set up recovery projects.
The idea of creating a “library” of technical elements of traditional alpine architecture was born to satisfy the following needs:
– to supply Revit families for mountain architecture (doors, windows, chimneys, railings, etc.) downloadable from web;
– to support other alpine technicians both in modeling and project phases to avoid alterations and falsifications of common typology of the alpine building tradition.
Despite the longer time needed to model by BIM respect to traditional CAD, it is possible to observe the BIM’S advantages on the long period for the information management and the documents processing, especially in urban projects, where there are many data to control and coordinate.
