BIM inventory model for the Strickhof water reservoir in Zurich

Project overview

The 120 m long and 30 m wide Strickhof water reservoir is situated above the University of Irchel. The owner ordered a complete and detailed basic BIM model from Basler & Hofmann as the basis for planning. All rooms, chambers and the surroundings were surveyed with scans for this purpose. Afterwards, an interdisciplinary project team generated a comprehensive BIM model. The final step was a virtual inspection tour of the model.
