Campus Design in architecture encompasses the planning and layout for some standard sections like Site Planning, Zoning and Land Use, Circulation and Access, Landscaping and Green Spaces, Academic and Administrative Facilities, Residential Facilities, Cultural and Recreational Amenities, Dining Facilities, Safety and Security, Utilities and Infrastructure, Sustainability and Environmental Considerations, Wayfinding and Signage, Public Spaces and Gathering Areas, Transportation and Transit, Technology Infrastructure. BIM automatically detects clashes and conflicts between various building components (e.g., plumbing pipes conflicting with structural elements). Identifying and resolving these clashes early in the design phase helps prevent costly changes during construction.
Police Housing requires specific security features. BIM can model security measures like access control, surveillance systems, and secure entrances to ensure residents' safety and privacy while generating detailed construction documentation directly from the model. BIM allows the creation of 3D models of Police Housing and a few sections like Residential Units, Security Measures, Amenities, Community Spaces, Proximity to Police Stations, Infrastructure, Accessibility and Inclusivity, Privacy Considerations, Fire Safety, Maintenance and Facilities Managemen
BIM allows for precise spatial planning, helping architects optimize the arrangement of Courtrooms, Chambers, Offices, Waiting areas and Circulation spaces to ensure efficient and accessible layouts. BIM can simulate security scenarios, including entry points, surveillance systems, and emergency evacuation plans. It helps in designing secure and safe court facilities. It aids in the design of individual courtrooms, including Seating arrangements, Witness stands, Judge's benches, Jury boxes, and Technology integration for audio-visual presentations.
Bus Terminals are essential transportation hubs in urban and intercity settings and typically include various sections to manage passenger and vehicle flow efficiently. Some sections include a Passenger Waiting Area, Bus Boarding/Alighting Platforms, Ticketing/Information Booths, Vehicle Maintenance and Service Area, Parking Area/Staging Area, Pedestrian Circulation, Vehicle Circulation, Passenger Amenities, Security and Control Room, Landscaping and Open Spaces. BIM is used to assess the energy performance of the terminal, helping designers incorporate sustainable design features such as natural lighting, energy-efficient HVAC systems, and renewable energy sources.
Correction Facility (Prison)
Cell Blocks or Housing Units, Common Areas, Administrative Areas, Security Checkpoints, Visitation Areas, Medical and Healthcare Facilities, Dining Hall or Mess Halls, Educational and Vocational Programs, Solitary Confinement or Special Housing Units (SHU), Work Areas, Recreational Facilities are various sections that are typically incorporated into the design of a Prison Facility to serve different purposes. BIM serves security planning, space utilization and 3D Visualization, which is very helpful in clash detection and also helps in coordination. BIM also aids in material management and generates detailed construction documentation directly from the model.
Police Headquarters contains complicated sections like Administrative Offices, Dispatch Center, Center, Records Unit, Investigations Division, Patrol Division, Training Academy, Forensic Laboratory, Community Relations, IT and Technology Services, Holding and Detention. Also, smaller departments may have fewer specialized sections, while larger metropolitan departments may have a more extensive and complex infrastructure. BIM can assist in integrating advanced security systems into the design, including access control, surveillance cameras, alarms, and secure entry points.
