 Development of Convergence Technology on Construction Information & Spatial Information

based on BIM/GIS Interoperability

 

Project Leader: Choi, Hyun-Sang (Research Fellow, hyunsang@kict.re.kr)

 

 

 

■ Overview

KICT has implemented a new concept software platform that brings together BIM (Building Information Modeling) and 3D GIS (Geographic Information System) used in the civil engineering and construction field. KICT has developed international standards for applied construction technologies and road facilities using this new software platform.Through this platform, which expands the use of precision 3D design data into the maintenance stage, it is possible to reinforce integrated management of “Building Energy Management (BEMS),” “Intelligent Building Management Systems (IBS),” and “underground 3D lifeline (water and sewage, electricity, communications, etc.)” fields. The platform provides a new information frame that allows for integration and operation of various buildings, urban infrastructure, and spatial information necessary for all smart city functions, such as housing, transport, and safety. It can be used not only as a management system for industrial parks or plants, university campuses, and large apartment housing complexes spread over large areas, but also as a “smart city management platform” for cities.

 ■ Background and necessity of the study


With the increasing complexity and size of cities, which directly impacts peoples’ lives, the progress of information technologies such as IoT and mobile have led to a great increase in the amount of information relating to the urban living environment, infrastructure, etc. With the advent of intelligence information society, the market demand for BIM (Building Information Modeling) and cutting-edge facilities management systems (BEMS, IBS, etc.) as platform technologies for smart city operation is increasing. However, current domestic technology has made little progress beyond the use of simple engineering software. As a result, it is necessary to secure source technologies that will boost the competitive power of Korean construction SW in the global construction market and to develop technological competencies that will allow Korea to lead relevant international standards.

To this end, KICT focused on the difficult technical task of convergence between BIM information and GIS information to develop a “BIM/GIS interoperability platform.” Based on the results of this task, the institute has engaged in additional studies for the standardization of these research achievements as BIM international standards (for road facilities).

■ Research achievements

The aim of the present study was to operate BIM information and GIS information on a single consolidated platform. To this end, KICT proceeded to develop source technologies, apply development output to the field, and promote commercialization of technologies through technology transfer. Academic achievements included numerous international SCI(E) articles, industrial property rights, and technology transfers. The project was chosen among the top 100 national R&D achievements in 2016, and as a KICT GLT (Global LeadingTechnology).

●  4 contracts signed for BIM/GIS interoperability platform technology transfer (2.71 royalty)
●  Enactment of IfcRoad PAS international standard relating to bSI Infra BIM schema (2016)
●  Technology successfully applied in the field at 5 sites (Sejong Base, Antarctica, KICT Facilities Management System, Infra BIM implementation for Okdong - Nongso section of National Highway 7, Unjeong Water Treatment Center, Unjeong Environmental Management Center)
●  Field application in site and facilities management system implementation project for Sejong Base in Antarctica (2014)
●  8 revisions to government technology standards - Technology reflected in 5th Master Plan for Improvement of Construction Technology
●  6 SCI and SCIE level articles, 49 articles in domestic journals
●  15 domestic patents, 1 international patent (U.S.A.) pending, 40 SW registrations, 60 press articles
●  Name KICT GLT (Global LeadingTechnology) and top 100 national R&D achievements for 2016
●  6 follow-up tasks, including additional research projects, R&D, and convergence research group projects are underway

■ Expected benefits

Through 5 years of research, the potential to use building information (BIM) and spatial information (GIS), which had previously been disconnected, on a single consolidated platform was identified. It was also found that it was possible to realistically represent the 3-dimensional complexities of urban space and use vast amounts of information about facilities to implement three-dimensional construction and maintenance of cutting-edge future cities which are growing in size, are becoming more and more integrated, and are going further underground.

The achievements of the present research task are many. The team participated in core platform development for a “technical study on an integrated open platform-based disaster response CPS for mixed-used and ultra high-rise facilities, and has undertaken a variety of follow-up tasks. These include the “development of info management for a BIM-based consolidated construction project for road and river facilities (5 years)” and “solution development and commercialization of a core platform for smart 3D building and spatial information (BIM/GIS). The team is also beginning joint research with DNW-GL of the United Kingdom for the enactment of international standards in the field of urban lifelines. 

The institute will continue to engage in research and development to expand the applications of our research. These applications will include establishing large-scale disaster response systems to meet the increasing need due to growing numbers of large-scale multi-use buildings, consolidated management of underground facilities and structures, which are considered to be a representative cause of sinkholes in city centers, and developing energy management systems for ultra high-rise buildings and smart cities. Through these efforts, we expect to improve Korean companies’ abilities to cope with future technologies and to pave the way for domestic technologies to make inroads into overseas construction markets.
