Introduction Germany's largest privately owned construction company, Max Bögl Group, is committed to adding value for clients at every step in the construction process. The company embraced Building Information Modeling (BIM) more than a decade ago. As BIM has advanced, so has the firm's innovative use of intelligent models. Max Bögl Group is also one of the first construction firms in Germany to take BIM into the field with the Autodesk ® BIM 360 ™ Field cloud‑based service. After piloting BIM 360 Field on a shopping mall construction project, the firm is excited about the way the software empowers its people and increases visibility into projects. Maximilian Schütz, BIM manager in Max Bögl Group's corporate development and BIM department, explains: "Our processes were already based on BIM. We've used it in the office to understand, plan, and improve projects for years. But the intelligence didn't extend into the field, where many processes were based on paper. We've always been committed to innovation, and the next logical step was to extend the intelligence of BIM throughout the construction site with BIM 360 Field." The challenge As Max Bögl Group began constructing a shopping mall that the firm would own and operate, Schütz saw an opportunity to pilot using BIM in the field. The company wanted to see if BIM 360 Field could improve two crucial but inefficient processes: quality assurance (QA)/quality control (QC) and safety inspections. These traditionally paper‑based processes rely on checklists and communication with subcontractors to resolve issues. According to Schütz, safety inspectors could spend as much as 40 percent of their time documenting and communicating inspection issues.
