The largest construction project on Haukeland in Norway since Sentralblokka was completed in 1983. The project started with phase one in 2011, which was completed in the autumn of 2016. Phase two will be completed by the turn of the year 2022/2023 with occupancy taking place in August 2023 with total investment costs amounting to approximately NOK 5.4 billion (USD 661 million).
Furthermore, dRofus enabled onsite data management for all stakeholders, and through the use of a live dashboard, the owner and key stakeholders were able to see the exact status of the project at any time.

In an outstanding display of IFC collaboration and Open BIM teamwork, PDC (a division of DBM Vircon) has won first prize in the design category at the recent 2019 buildingSMART International Awards. The award recognized PDC’s Digital Engineering team for its pioneering and innovative efforts on the $3.6 billion Queen’s Wharf project in Brisbane, Australia.
Over 16 different pieces of software, including dRofus, were deployed by 39 contributing organizations. PDC (DBM Vircon) had over 340 models under management, with 215 individual models processed weekly.

dRofus has been an essential tool on this project. Our expectations were to be able to decrease the time spent on tasks like writing Room Data Sheets, setting up FF&E, joinery or finishes schedules and to ensure that the brief information was aligned with the BIM model.
As a client-server database, dRofus allowed everyone (client, contractor, consultants, engineers, architects, etc totalling 200 users for the project) to simultaneously populate the database. This has eliminated the need to exchange and incorporate data from complex spreadsheet files thus practically eliminating human error.
