Abstract:This research is about how BIM (building information modelling) can assist in the planning process at the Groninger Forum and how BAM can improve the plan by making use of prefabrication. The causes for this research are the logistic challenges that arise because of the construction site of the Groninger Forum with little space in the middle of the city centre of Groningen. For the Groninger Forum, BAM wants to deliver to the construction site JIT (Just In Time). To assist in arranging the logistics, BAM created a hub just outside the city centre. To have a good foundation to control the logistics, the focus of this research is on the planning process. For this research, the planning process is defined as: all activities and decisions made regarding the planning from the start of the project till the actual work is done. The research question answered in this research is: How can (i) the planning process of a construction project efficiently be supported by the BIM model and (ii) how can the plan be improved by prefabrication?
