BIM LOD 400 Federated Model for the Largest Eye Hospital, Egypt Banner

Client Profile.

The client is one of the largest construction companies in the MENA region with operations in 15 countries specializing in a variety of buildings such as healthcare, industrial, residential and commercial.

Business Need.

The firm was working on a construction project for a large eye hospital in Egypt spread over 5 million sq. ft. To ensure optimal and effective usage of area, proper material planning, and lifecycle assessment, they required a BIM team that could:

  • Develop a coordinated Revit 3D BIM model using 2D drawings of architectural, structural and MEP components and actual photographs of medical equipment setup
  • Extract BOQs for construction material and quantity needed on-site

The digitized model would serve as a future referencing point as well as help in decision making.

Project Samples.


As this was a healthcare building, the coordinated model had to be developed considering multiple usages like ducting for oxygen supply, heavy electrical lines, etc. Additionally, the input 2D CAD drawings posed challenges such as:


A coordinated clash-free Revit 3D BIM model at LOD 400 and meeting COBie [Construction Operations and Building Information Exchange] standards, was delivered. The model ensured multi-disciplinary design coordination and removed design ambiguity. BOQs generated from federated BIM model enabled lifecycle assessment for efficient maintenance of medical set up across the facility.
