CYPE participates in the buildingSMART International summit with a presentation on the impact of Covid-19 on building design

CYPE will participate on March 22nd in "The buildingSMART International Virtual Summit Spring 2021" with a presentation analyzing the impact of the pandemic on building design and explain the operation of the Open BIM program COVID-19, an application adapted to design, calculate and implement the safety measures of spaces in light of COVID-19.

Afonso Solak will be participating in the "BIM and Covid19" talk, which will begin at 4 pm. on March 22nd and will also feature Kay Sargent, WorkPlace director at HOK, an American design, architecture and engineering firm.

During his presentation, Afonso Solak will show the design of a construction project that includes the implementation of preventive measures against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, such as interpersonal safety distance, air renewal rate per person, furniture or the installation of separators.

To show the relationship between BIM and COVID-19, he will explain how the Open BIM COVID-19 program works and how this tool takes into account the elements mentioned above. Open BIM COVID-19 is capable of generating documentation in the form of either a detailed report that includes the maximum capacity permitted, or a graphical representation, which can be used to design the most appropriate layout according to the criteria established by the regulations of a given country.

Additionally, the program also allows the preparation of the cost and budget associated with the addition of any necessary material in order to comply with COVID-19 safety regulations, such as the installation of separators, waste bins or hydroalcoholic gels, among other things, as well as the ability to automatically generate a budget.
