Amazon’s new distribution centre has been defined the largest project currently being constructed in central-southern Italy and the first in Europe running on an automated robot system.
It is located north of the capital, more precisely, in the northeast of Rome, bordering on the Province of Rieti, in the area of Passo Corese, in the Comune of Fara in Sabina.
The construction is made up of a large industrial building for use as a warehouse (approx. 50,000 sq.m. per floor) with three floors, with an annex for offices (approx. 8,000 sq.m.).
It has been carried out by Parallel Digital, in collaboration with Jacobs Italia, using BIM coordination on site and LOD 350 modelling.
From the start, every model - one for each function area – was set up with worksets to better subdivide the work of each of the users within the sector/area and for each floor, as the building has several floors.
This sub-division, clearly respecting the BEP (BIM Execution Plan), prevented overlapping and/or interference between different local job files to avoid delays or errors during modelling.
Every family contained in the various models was parameterized, in a detailed manner, to suit the needs and functions required.
The optimal result of this approach can be seen above all in the Fire Safety model, HVAC model and Plumbing model, where each function system effectively corresponds to a virtual system.
In the execution phase, work on site involved coordination between the architectural and structural aspects and the function areas by means of weekly reports following continual checks carried out on site, so as to keep full control over macro-categories.
In the construction phase there was parallel checking and coordination of the function areas to allow for changes to modelling in the built architectonic and structural parts.
