New Stars at Plan B!

Cristina och Johannes.jpg

In early June we had the pleasure of welcoming Johannes Basmahji and Cristina Lázaro and to Plan B.

Johannes has worked for 7 years in major industrial projects as a designer and model coordinator, including KVV8 and Stora Enso. Johannes will work as project manager BIM in some of our industrial projects, including Northvolt.

Cristina has previously worked with strategies, trend reconnaissance and change management in the framework of a number of major research and development projects, and will work with change management in our projects, as well as projects within Smart Built Environment and other innovation programs.

Oscar Lindell applies the BEAst review- and approval standard

Our colleague Oscar Lindell applies the review- and approval standard which BEAST has developed in the project Albano by Akademiska Hus, using the issue management tool Jira. Yet another step in streamlining project and design management processes, and removing the paper from our desktops.

Read more about the application in an information sheet that the BIM Alliance has developed (Swedish).

 Oscar is happy to participate in yet another digital review- and approval process!

National guidelines for BIM and geodata

On April 17, Rogier Jongeling of Plan B presented National BIM Guidelines and Geodata at the BIM Alliance Annual Seminar. Everything is freely available and open source.

There is still a lot of work left, but we are very pleased with what has been published now. Most of the material wil be available in English soon!

Plan B has already begun applying the material for a number of customers.

Hiral and Per join Plan B

In February, Hiral and Per joined us at Plan B.

Hiral has previously worked with cost estimation, production and facility management contracts. She has worked with cost estimates for civil works and housing. She will work with a number of major renovation projects and with the development of model-based cost-calculation methodology. Hiral will work from our Stockholm office.

Per will work with National guidelines for BIM and geodata, and a number of model coordination assignments. Per will work at our Uppsala office. We moved in December to a new office in Uppsala. The office is located right next to the train station. No, not the house with all the triangles, but the house just behind. Feel free to stop by for a coffee with BIM and PLM content!

A whole group at once!

In January, a whole group of new employees joined us at Plan B. So nice!

Maria, Edona, Fredrik, Angelica and Sandra join our team. They have previous experience from the offshore industry, construction industry and construction production as project managers and construction engineers.

They will, among other things, work in a number of large industrial plants, as well as some of our construction projects of which the Royal Opera House is one of. Welcome!

Inspiration from Singapore

Plan's annual autumn conference brought us to Singapore!

We visited the National University of Singapore and were very impressed with the progress of full-scale 3D printing with multiple materials. We saw examples from China, Singapore and India. This is really happening and will shortly lead to significant changes for the industry.

Our visit to Virtual Singapore was equally impressive. A truly so-called digital twin of all of Singapore in a sophisticated PLM platform. More than 1200 different types of data layers, all combined in an integrated and collaborative environment with endless features and uses. The degree of detail is impressive and perhaps on the verge of being a little scary. For example, you can take a close look at individual trees, windows and the question is what more ...?

Our hosts were impressed by our work using Level of Development, Product Lifecycle Management and BIM Portals, which feels like a good benchmark.

... and as you can see, Plan B has grown significantly over the last year. We are now 25 people, but need to grow even more to meet the demand for our services. Please contact us!

Elin Persson at Plan B

Elin Persson has started at Plan B! Elin has previously worked as a project manager and will now work with a number of hospital and office buildings.

Our work in projects is not limited to the typical coordination in the design phase anymore, but stretches throughout the whole lifecycle and involves strategic planning and design- and project management. Elin's experience is very valuable in this respect. Elin will be part of our team in Stockholm.

Erik Lindström at Plan B

Erik Lindström starts his work at Plan B! Erik has been working as a site engineer and has a good understanding of the integration between design, procurement and construction. This is valuable experience in the increasingly more integrated digital information management in construction.

We asked our colleague Oscar to take a picture of Erik "in action". He sent us nine pictures of Erik in one of our conference rooms...quite some action in other words :-)
