Mar 2021 – Singapore’s JTC Corporation (JTC) has awarded to novaCITYNETS, a subsidiary of Nova MSC the project under JTC Innovation Challenge initiative to ease the transition for construction companies in their adoption of Building Information Model (BIM).

The JTC Innovation Challenge was an initiative started in 2015 to bring industry partners and solution providers together to address challenges in the built environment sector. JTC works with solution partners by providing funding and domain expertise to co-create solutions that will address the challenges to transform the way JTC will plan, design, build and manage their buildings and estates.

In the project, NOVA will provide a solution to perform:

  • Automated check for data quality against Model Content Plan (MCP) that JTC has compiled based on today’s known requirements for various stages in the building model lifecycle.
  • Automated check of the BIM model to ensure it meets the design expectation of JTC’s Building and Design requirements which encompasses Architectural, Civil & Structural (C&S), Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) disciplines.

To achieve the 2 innovation objectives, we are deploying FORNAX our could-based ePlanCheck system a full-fledged BIM automation platform for regulatory compliance check, data audit, query, analytics, GIS integration and collaboration for BIM projects.
