BIM (Building Information Model) is an intelligent model-based process that provides insight to help you plan, design, construct, and manage buildings.
It makes possible the production of a complete parametric database of built or as-built building. It allows the capitalization of information databases developed at each stage of a process of construction or rehabilitation. This collaborative production process of all building stakeholders around a single 3D model leads to a large save of time and money.
AGP with its R & D section is adapting BIM to heritage buildings and promotes this innovative method, which is becoming the standard of cultural heritage management.
Wishing to apply the latest technologies and concepts for the conservation of architectural heritage, AGP has produced several BIM models on historical buildings such as, here, the St Trophime Cloister in Arles or the Garnier opera in Paris. AGP has also produced, within the framework of the Callisto Sari project, the BIM model of the Palais d’Antin, a wing of the Grand-Palais that houses the Palais de la découverte. This model is visible in full-scale immersive projection for project monitoring and was selected for the first BIM d’Or awards. Convinced that this new data processing represents clear added value within the framework of a restoration or the study of an ancient monument, AGP stands as a forerunner.
AGP has been called upon to produce a BIM model of part of the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie science museum, within the framework of the renovation and redevelopment of the site. This experience, an enriching one for the company, was an opportunity to intervene on a different type of building and, with our R&D hub, to develop new competencies such as "as built". Whether with regard to human (BIM architects) or technological resources (specific software), AGP positions itself very competitively within built industrial heritage.
Service industry and offices
AGP has been commissioned to create BIM models of the two wings (east-west) of the Challenger head office for Bouygues. These models have notably been used for the layout of the building’s interior areas, a field in which AGP wishes to offer more systematic usage of the BIM model.
