“Canopée des Halles” represents one of the largest projects in the French scenario, being focused on the reconfiguration of the area which represents the heart of Paris, under a commercial and infrastructural point of view.
During the PRO phase, which anticipates the tendering, the society DECODE played an intermediary role between architects, engineers and other specialists, developing a 3D master model based on Rhino and Grasshopper. This model represented a useful instrument for the evolution of the project, supporting the verification of technical solutions and resolution of conflicts. Once concluded the evolution was enriched with information, integrating through specific plug-ins a data-base of attributes and 2D drawings necessary during the tendering. The project was then exported into an IFC interoperable model, through a custom exporter, and delivered to construction industries who participate to this innovative digital tender procedure.
