Mr. Mustafa Tolunay, the General Manager of Prefabrik Yapı, shared in his speech at the summit what was effective in their starting to the BIM adventure. He talked about the factors that will positively and negatively affect commercial growth by 2022, as well as the change in demand for key skills across all industries between 2015-2020. In particular, he emphasized the rapid development of technology and underlined the necessity of companies to keep up with technology. Tolunay, who included ten technologies that will transform the global economy by 2025 in his speech, said that “Unfortunately, we do not spend enough money and time on design and project as a country. However, when there are complications in building construction, our costs are increasing accordingly. In addition, such circumstances at the end of the work as renovation, replacement of the installation cause serious loss of time and financial losses”.

He stated that they started BIM work in the form of BIM Object with the natural cement board products with A1 class non-flammability branded by HekimBoard and stated that they aimed to fully digitize their systems with the inclusion of other product groups in this process. After expressing how excited they are about adapting to BIM as a company; they aim to complete the process in about two years as a result of their intensive work, and with the full adaptation to BIM, they will have the opportunity to share with the customers all phases of the project from the construction phase to the completion of the structure. Tolunay, who also talked about sustainability, made a short presentation on the construction stages of three-dimensional modelling of Prefabrik Yapı’s Steelin branded light steel construction systems up to 8 times.
