Abu Dhabi Curtain Wall project accelerated engineering processes by 10% saving 30% in time and 30% in labor costs

The Abu Dhabi International Airport Project will expand the existing airport. The newly built terminal is positioned as the portal of Abu Dhabi, with an indoor area of 325,000 sqm and 30 meters in height. The project is planned to complete in July 2017. According to project BIM requirements, every subcontractor should set up a designated BIM team, responsible for developing its own model, and coordinate with other subcontractors for clash-free implementation.  Before review and approval start, drawings and corresponding clash-free model should be submitted simultaneously.
