IDoK was founded in the year 2010. Since then several studies were completed in the course of studies in Civil Engineering, in which the use of object-oriented 3D modeling was used to construct buildings, simulate the underlying structures, and carry out initial mass and cost calculations. With the founding of the institute, a platform for pooling the BIM activities was created at Jade Hochschule. The work of the institute tackled the topics of the final thesis and began by verifying BIM-compliant methods for coupling program systems for 3D CAD design, for reinforcement construction in solid construction and for the simulation of structures. Added to this are the applications for mass and cost determinations, for tendering and tendering, for the construction process planning as well as for quality control of the 3D models.
