Huawei to construct BIM cloud in Shanghai

Updated: 2013-09-02 21:53

Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the nation's biggest telecom gear vendor, said it would construct China's first building information modeling (BIM) cloud in Shanghai Tower, a new landmark of Shanghai that is under construction.

Huawei held a launch ceremony on Monday with Shanghai Tower Construction and Development Co, but did not reveal when the project will be complete.

BIM in the cloud will help enterprises in the construction sector improve project outcomes by moving computation-intensive tasks to the cloud, enabling more rapid visualization and simulation and optimized collaboration with access to intelligent, data-rich models.

Shanghai Tower will stand at 632 meters high when construction is completed, and can house more than 30,000 people. The construction started in 2008.
