DB Station & Service AG works with Allplan to deliver Project template for BIM-based platform design

DB Station & Service AG, the transport station operator on Germany’s DB Netz AG route network, has worked with Allplan to develop a ‘comprehensive project template’, which is now available to all Allplan users as a free download.

The template for applying the BIM methodology for DB Station&Service AG projects contains numerous features that support the entire workflow of design, model creation, evaluation, documentation and data transfer. It means planning projects for Deutsche Bahn can be carried out in accordance with the Group’s BIM specifications, to help ensure high data quality.

“The BIM methodology has become indispensable in the design, construction and operation of the structures of Deutsche Bahn. It provides cost certainty before tenders for construction work are made, increases the quality of planning and, last but not least, enables the digital transfer of data for operation and maintenance,” says Dr. Katja Maaser, Head of Standardization and Digitization at DB Station & Service AG.

In this context, BIM content is an important component in ensuring the qualitative application of the BIM methodology. “We are therefore pleased that all components created by ALLPLAN meet the requirements of the DB BIM specifications in version 2.4 and the standards laid down by DB Station & Service AG,” continues Dr. Katja Maaser.

DB Station & Service AG, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn, is one of the largest operators of transport real estate in Europe with 5,400 stations and 800 station buildings.
