Digital requirement planning in the construction sector

From idea to plan

It is 2023 – high time for us to take the next step towards efficient and future-oriented construction. While the traditional requirement planning method still fulfills its function, digital requirement planning is paving the way in the evolution of the construction sector.

One of the major challenges of project management is satisfying the numerous qualitative and quantitative needs and requirements while still adhering to tight deadline and cost specifications.

To master these challenges, LOGO uses digital requirement planning with BriefBuilder, a construction-specific, web-based database that is used right from the start of every construction project.  

Define, analyze, verify and manage product requirements on a single platform, for maximum transparency on requirements at every phase of planning.

With this digital tool, we enable highly efficient and collaborative working and help all those involved in the project to optimize the project results, increase the quality level and minimize the use of resources. How it works:

  • Structured and precise requirement recording
  • Analysis of requirements and identification of risks, e.g., early and fast detection of deviations between requirement and planning in order to adhere to deadline and cost specifications
  • Quality assurance through fast target-actual comparisons, e.g., checking area requirements, comparing and forecasting quantities for quantity and budget control
  • Linking of requirements with BIM models

LOGO uses digital requirement planning based on DIN 18205 in a wide range of sectors, such as universities and airports.

At universities, flexible and future-oriented teaching, study and work rooms need to be implemented under strict specifications. Requirement planning was created for two construction phases of the new building at Gütersloh campus in order to provide a basis for planning implementation.

The security check units at Terminal 1 (B-East and B-West) at Frankfurt Airport are to be replaced by a central security check at what is currently the check-in Hall B. As a result, the aviation security zone will move and existing space on various levels will be reutilized. LOGO has recorded the user-specific requirements digitally right from the start of project development, documenting them in requirement documents as a basis for planning.
