Webinar: Kuwait International Airport (October 21, 2021)

Webinar: Kuwait International Airport
The overall finite element model and the importance of Open BIM
October 21, 2021

Take part in Sofistik's upcoming webinar in collaboration with Werner Sobek AG. Matteo Brunetti of Werner Sobek AG will present one of their most ambitious projects--Kuwait International Airport.

Kuwait's international airport will be expanded in 2022 by a new terminal building (Terminal 2) based on a design by Foster + Partners. Despite an edge length of 1.2 km and a roof area of more than 320,000 m², the building was planned without expansion joints. The main structure consists of curved pre-stressed concrete parts with a maximum span of 145m. Overall, the size of the building, the complex interaction between the various components, and the innovative systems render this project an extraordinary one.

Matteo Brunetti will give you an overview of the demanding project focusing on the overall finite element model. Using Grasshopper and the SOFiSTiK Rhinoceros Interface, a seamless Open BIM workflow was implemented and formed an essential part of the project.
