Digital ееechnology for sports
Designing sports facilities is a difficult and responsible task. Objects of this kind combine a bright, memorable architecture and a complex of engineering systems. That is why designers are constantly in search of new effective solutions for working with such projects. The Sochi Olympics and the 2018 World Cup set new requirements for the design and construction of sports facilities in Russia.
Sergey Bryuzgin, the head of the Metropolis Ventilation and Air Conditioning Heating Department, told the Construction Weekly newspaper how to create a world-class modern sports facility and meet a tough deadline.
The design is based on technology
The most successful developments actively used by designers are BIM technologies. Their use in the design of modern complex facilities, which include sports facilities, is one of the key conditions for successful customer investments, because the BIM-design technology can significantly save time and money needed for the project.
This technology makes it possible to improve the quality of design and at an early stage to present a complete picture of how the object will look and function. If necessary, the customer can make timely adjustments to the project at the stage when the changes do not entail large costs. This is a great opportunity for all project participants to get an almost perfect product with external attractiveness, comfort and safety of the environment and, most importantly, investment attractiveness.
Now all the projects of our company are developed using this technology. For example, the Center for Rhythmic Gymnastics named after Irina Viner-Usmanova back in 2016 won first place in the BIM-technology competition organized by the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation.
Another promising development is the technology of mathematical modeling (CFD modeling), which is quite young in the construction industry. Before its appearance, this or that technical solution could be substantiated either based on the accumulated experience (most often using the decisions made earlier for such objects), or using field tests (creating a layout, test bench, etc.). The first option is risky (a similar object can differ quite significantly in its characteristics from the projected one, which can give its own error and lead to inoperability of the solution). The second one is costly both in terms of money and time, not to mention that far from all layouts can be physically implemented. CFD technology makes it possible to solve a non-standard unit in a couple of days, and sometimes in a few hours, to make the necessary adjustments to it and achieve the solution’s efficiency and efficiency.
