Elbe Philharmonic Hall
|Ort :||Hamburg, Germany|
|Projekttyp :||Concert hall, hotel, residential area|
|Projektgröße :||GFA: 120.000m²|
The Elbe Philharmonic Hall is set to be a new landmark in Hamburg. It is a highly complex building with densely intertwined pipes, tubes, steel and concrete. The undulating glass crown of the building will be home to two concert halls, a five-star hotel with 250 rooms, restaurants and about 47 exclusive penthouses. The Kaispeicher, a historic warehouse, will house a third concert hall and a parking garage for more than 500 cars.HOCHTIEF ViCon supported the contractor right from the tender phase, in which it prepared a simplified 3D model of the building and a video animation. In the course of the project, the 3D model was regularly updated on the basis of 2D drawings. The model forms the basis for 3D Clash Detection conducted by HOCHTIEF ViCon. This test detects geometrical conflicts between trades so that collisions can be avoided right from the planning phase and even before construction starts. An on-site iRoom is used to discuss the results of the 3D Clash Detection test. On interactive projection screens, plans and models can be tagged with comments and sent to specialist planners. The model also serves as the basis for 4D construction sequence planning. Using the 4D model, conflicting schedules can be identified and remedied in time. In addition, it is used to monitor progress by means of a target/actual analysis. Webcams on the building site portal also serve to document construction progress.
