With the new Stuttgart Cancer Center – The Eva Mayr-Stihl Tumor Center – Stuttgart Hospital will have a facility in which interdisciplinary efforts are made to fight cancer. This new purpose-built building was planned with BIM
More than 10,000 cancer patients are treated each year at the Stuttgart hospital. In order to bring together the extensive expertise in the various specialist areas surrounding cancer medicine under one roof, the new Stuttgart Cancer Center (SCC) – Eva Mayr-Stihl Tumor Center is currently under construction in the heart of the city.
After its completion (expected in 2024), a day clinic for oncology, nuclear medicine, radiotherapy and other areas of cancer patient care will work hand in hand on one site.
Frankfurt-based Schmidt Plöcker Architekten was responsible for the execution and planning of this special healthcare building, with design planning led by Sweco. On behalf of the general contractor, Gustav Epple, the BIM method – OPEN BIM to be precise – was to be used to deliver the project.
As part of the master plan for the new hospital campus in Stuttgart, this new building closes the urban periphery at the corner of Kriegsbergstraße/Hegelplatz. Between the second basement and the second floor, the brachytherapy and cancer therapy sectors as well as the oncology day care will be housed. The upper floors will house – with 50 additional beds – the care and functional areas of radiotherapy and nuclear medicine.
Structurally, the building is a reinforced concrete construction with flat ceilings. Some ceilings and walls are barite concrete due to design radiation protection requirements.
Building model in Allplan
In addition to the purely BIM-based design, Schmidt Plöcker also took over the overall BIM coordination, the preparation of the Customer Information Requirements (CIR) and the BIM Execution Plan (BEP), as well as the coordination of a model-based digital system. attribute database to integrate component information from all specialist consultancies.
The building model was created in Allplan. From this it was possible to derive all the necessary plans, such as floor plans (ground plan and floor levels) and ceiling levels, or detail drawings (wall views as cross-section leads, for example). Derivations from the model were also used for detailed planning.
BIM coordination via Bimplus by ALLPLAN
The BIM coordination of the project was carried out using the open BIM platform Bimplus. The cloud-based solution was used to connect the external specialist consultants and their models and to interface with the Prevera database, which was used to generate an integrated technical book for the transfer of parts information, doors and windows. The exchange of attributes between the architectural and technical models or the different programs also took place bidirectionally via the Bimplus platform.
In addition, Schmidt Plöcker used Bimplus for quality assurance and model verification, as well as documentation to document the revisions of the various specialized models. Communication between project participants took place via the integrated Issue Manager functionality. For better quality assurance of the BIM models, the revision software Solibri was used, among others.
