Barely over eight months after Tungsram has bought majority ownership in world-class property and facility management software ArchiFM, the company quickly scored the first and so far the biggest goal in Puskás Aréna. The 67,000-seat stadium’s senior management carefully examined the possibilities and decided to entrust ArchiFM to integrate and manage their BIM models and their related systems.
“Among our most important selection criteria when trying to find a service provider were that they be able to offer services locally while seamlessly adjusting to our facility management needs, that they have relevant references, and be experienced and dedicated to manage the BIM model of the largest public building in Hungary,” explained Puskás Aréna manager Barnabás Mesics. ArchiFM and everyone at the Tungsram Innovative Solutions team were able to successfully step up to the challenge. Being the largest public building in Hungary with its impressive length of 316.5 meters (compare that to the Parliament which is ‘only’ 268 meters) it will meet all UEFA and FIFA requirements.
With ArchiFM, we diligently set up a Building Information Management (BIM) methodology whereby we thoroughly merged and consolidated all heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electricity, IT, and safety-related information and mapped all parameters from various sources that were used during the design of the building. It resulted in over 10GB of structured data that we imported into ArchiFM. After creating a comprehensive asset inventory, we implemented our facility management best practices to be able to optimize their workflow management. All these strenuous efforts will result in significant cost reduction and a notable service quality improvement. “ArchiFM is at the heart of Tungsram’s vision for the future,” stated Joerg Bauer.
And being able to manage the gem of the largest Hungarian construction project of the past decades proves just that. If you want to peek into Puskás Aréna with a drone, do not miss our video and if you like it, share it with your friends.
