"The digital future is at home in Bavaria," says former Bavarian Minister-President Horst Seehofer referring to the plans for the Siemens Campus Erlangen.
For the first time worldwide the building information modeling method (BIM) is being used for a large Siemens Location. This innovative process enables buildings to be planned right from the start by using virtual 3D models that take all key data into account. This approach makes it possible, for instance, to identify and avoid collisions between pipes and cable routes during the planning phase rather than during construction. Once completed, BIM will supply all data needed to manage the buildings more efficiently.
The innovative building technology of Siemens also plays an important part. Consistently integrated, state-of-the-art digital technology such as smart building applications and an intelligent smart-grid-based network connection will increase the sustainability of buildings and of the entire site.
The site will feature modern IT landscapes which allow for a flexible and mobile way of working and doing research in the future.
The Siemens Campus app based on Siemens BIM data provides a first impression of the Campus by offering a virtual tour of the first module.
Nomination of the Siemens Campus app to the short list for the German Digital Award in April 2018 is further evidence of its innovative power and quality.
