A CASE FOR INTELLIGENT CONTROL
ZUUSE TECHNOLOGY CONTROLS SOME OF THE WORLD’S BIGGEST PROJECTS
FOR COMPLEX FACILITIES, THE WORLD’S BEST TURN TO
3D BIM DELIVERED BY ZUUSE
Zuuse works closely with the world’s most renowned developers to provide customised, intelligent full lifecycle BIM solutions for their assets. From design through to operation, 3D BIM technology delivered by Zuuse enables better decision-making and reduces total lifecycle costs.
The new Royal Adelaide Hospital (nRAH), Adelaide
Zuuse’s signature project in the Australian market is the new Royal Adelaide Hospital (nRAH), a $1.8B world-class 800-bed healthcare facility currently under construction in Adelaide, South Australia.
Deployed in the cloud, the software is in use daily by over 200 subcontractors as the central repository for all project documentation, as well as the primary tracking and control platform for the Hansen Yuncken/Leightons Contractors (HYLC) BIM team.
PYRMONT BRIDGE, SYDNEY
The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) have implemented a 3D-based BIM solution to supersede their manual and paper-based processes for the inspection, maintenance and remedial work of the Pyrmont Bridge, a heritage landmark built in 1901.
Prior to the implementation of Zuuse, bridge inspectors would undertake the annual condition assessment of the 7500+ structural components over three to four weeks with clipboards and digital cameras in hand. Back in the office, notes would transcribed and information compiled and various other reports would be generated, which would take upwards of three months.
Now, a cloud-based 3D BIM solution sees bridge inspectors armed with iPad Minis and the mobile inspection app – Zuuse Capture – which ensures the data entered is automatically synced with the 3D model.
FLINDERS UNIVERSITY – TONSLEY, ADELAIDE
In early 2015, Flinders University’s state-of-the-art $120 million School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics at Tonsley was unveiled. The six-storey 16,000 sqm building designed by Hassell and built by Lend Lease, now houses 150 staff, 2,000 students and 100 Hills staff.
This major development project presented a unique opportunity to implement an innovative way to better design, construct and then operate facilities at Flinders University.
Flinders University required a platform that not only encompassed their new, fully 3D modelled buildings but also one that could offer a cost-effective pathway to ultimately bring their entire existing portfolio into the world of 3D, to take advantage of the efficiencies that BIM offered.
In a ground-breaking Australian first, the Tonsley building was commissioned as a full BIM construction project, producing coordinated models of the architectural, structural, hydraulic, fire, mechanical, electrical and AV systems with the ambitious vision to fully utilise them at the heart of the day-to-day operations of the facility.
The Zuuse BIM solution was chosen as the software to scale across the complete building lifecycle, delivering a robust and scalable platform designed to be the single point of truth to facilitate better operational, tactical and strategic decisions throughout the entire asset lifecycle – most importantly, in FM.
TALLAWARRA POWER STATION, NEW SOUTH WALES
Zuuse is being used at Tallawarra Power Station to link critical compliance and operational data and reports to a 3D model of its core steam pipe systems. This enables the power station to capture and track essential maintenance activities and ensure statutory compliance.
Based on the success of the Tallawarra project, Zuuse is working closely with ALS, one of the world’s largest and most diversified testing services providers, to deliver a template solution that addresses the challenges with the capture, storage and manipulation of inspection and testing data for this heavily regulated industry.
METRO SOUTH HEALTH, QUEENSLAND
Metro South Health comprises five major hospitals in addition to a number of health centres, employing over 12,500 staff with an annual operating budget of $1.6 billion.
Zuuse is initially being implemented at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, creating 3D models via a combination of Revit and laser scanning, integrating Zuuse to the existing SAP ERP system and moving to a digital work order system on tablets.
FLINDERS UNIVERSITY – STUDENT HUB, ADELAIDE
The new Student Hub at Flinders University is set to be a vibrant place to learn, connect and play when construction is complete in 2016. Featuring a 2,000 seat amphitheatre for live concerts and outdoor cinema screenings, rooftop garden, food hall and function venues it will also include group study spaces, study booths and laptop bars.
Lend Lease are using the Zuuse 3D BIM solution throughout the construction phase of the new Student Hub which will then be implemented by the Flinders University FM team on completion. This will present immediate benefits given the Zuuse solution will be handed over with a central store of key construction information (linked to the 3D model) as well as further intel regarding defects and O&M which has been collected digitally in the field via mobile devices.
The aim of the solution is to deliver an asset management solution that provides Flinders University with better long-term decision-making capability that will extend the life of the asset and reduce the overall lifecycle costing.
MAJOR PROJECTS VICTORIA – SHRINE OF REMEMBRANCE, MELBOURNE
Built in 1934, the Shrine of Remembrance is a high profile landmark in Victoria and one of the largest memorials in Australia. By 2020, it is expected that over one million people will visit the Shrine every year.
The recently completed $45m redevelopment project included a new gallery and education space underneath the Shrine with facilities for exhibitions, community research, and schools’ programs.
With no pre-existing drawings needed for construction, the Shrine was laser scanned and brought to life in a 3D model. The model works in unison with the digital Zuuse Work Order System which supports the preventative and reactive maintenance required for the Shrine and allows maintenance workers and/or external contractors to communicate in the field. Documents are stored in the central data system which is linked to the 3D model.
