Bengaluru: 3D tech to be used to build KIA’s 2nd terminal

Bengaluru: Authorities at the Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) are all set to use an intelligent 3D design construction technology to build the second terminal (T2) at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA).
BIAL has identified Autodesk BIM 360 (Building Information Modelling) as the design and planning platform for construction of T2.
“This platform will ensure that the entire team is able to access information – from design, fabrication, and construction to operations and maintenance – to make informed decisions from a common point of understanding. Bengaluru airport is the first infrastructure project in the country that will be designed, built and operated across the project life cycle using an intelligent 3D design construction technology,” said a press release from BIAL on Monday.
“As part of our digital transformation, BIAL will look to leverage the full extent of digital design under the Autodesk suite from design to on-site
construction. BIM will enable us to develop new and innovative infrastructure, thereby setting new benchmark,” said Tom Shimmin, chief project officer, BIAL.
