As a center adult education, culture and art, the new Hospitalhof in Stuttgart is known way beyond the city surrounds. It is the central administration and meeting place for the Protestant Church of the greater Stuttgart Metropolitan Area, as well as the regional synod. The load-bearing structure of the new building, which has been designed by Lederer Ragnarsdóttir Oei Architects, has been designed and implemented by Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering. The complex space structure has been completely developed from schematic design through construction documents on the basis of a three-dimensional digital building model. The following report describes dealing with three-dimensional structures in building construction und shows the potentials of an early BIM-planning (BIM: Building Information Modeling) based on concrete examples and experiences.
