Fota House ď‚›
Fota House was originally built as a modest two storey hunting lodge for the wealthy and powerful Earls of Barrymore. During the 1820s, the house was extensively remodeled by John 'The Magnificent' Smith Barry into an elegant Regency mansion. The sumptuous interiors from tha period have recently been restored to their former glory and give the visitor a privileged look at the best of 18th and 19th Century Irish craftsmanship.
Fota remained in family ownership until the death of Mrs Dorothy Bell in 1975. Since then, the Fota Estate has passed through various phases of ownership involving University College Cork and the Fota Trust. In December 2007, the Irish Heritage Trust took ownership of the house and invested in major restoration and conservation work since then.
Charles Fort is a star fort located on the water's edge, at the southern end of the village of Summer Cove, on Kinsale harbour, County Cork, Ireland. James' Fort is located on the other side of the harbour. Charles Fort is built on the site of an earlier stronghold known as Ringcurran Castle, which featured prominently during the Siege of Kinsale in 1601. The fort, which is named after Charles II, was designed by the Surveyor-general Sir William Robinson - architect of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. The fort was built in the 1670s and 1680s to a star fortification design - a layout specifically designed to resist attack by cannon. The inland bastions of the fort however are overlooked by higher ground, a fact of critical importance when the fort was besieged by John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough in 1690 during the Williamite War in Ireland. Repairs were made following the siege, and the fort remained in use as a British Army barracks for two hundred years afterwards.

The Cathedral of Saint Colman , Cobh ď‚›
The Cathedral of Saint Colman is a large and elaborately detailed neo-Gothic building. It is prominently sited overlooking Cork harbour and visible for quite a distance. Local people are generally very proud of it and tourists often climb the steep hill to admire and photograph it. The historian Emmet Larkin has called it "the most ambitious building project undertaken by the Church in nineteenthcentury Ireland" and Frederick O'Dwyer says that it was "certainly the most costly Irish ecclesiastical building of the Victorian era". Cobh Cathedral probably enjoys the most advantageous position of any Irish cathedral. Because of its hillside site, it dominates the quay in an imposing way, standing clear of all neighbouring buildings. The exterior detail is intricate, elegant and well proportioned in a way typical of French sophistication. Its south front faces out to the sea and, viewed from the town, it displays its flying buttresses, gargoyles, spirelets and pinnacles, giving the impression of a Bucentaur sailing in state along the horizon. The basic building material is blue Dalkey granite with cut stone dressing of Mallow limestone. Newry granite is used in the tower, with red Aberdeen granite in the pillars of the west front and the piers at the entrance of the nave. The roof is blue Belgian slate. Bath stone and Portland stone are used to line the inner walls. Red Midleton marble is used in the shrines and in the first confessionals on both aisles; the remaining confessionals are of red Aberdeen granite.
Kildalton College Project
Kildalton College Project
Kildalton was originally part of the Bessborough Estate owned by the Ponsonby family. The main house was completed in 1755. The house was burned in 1923 and rebuilt in 1929. In March 1940 the Oblate Fathers established a seminary at Bessborough House. The Oblates worked their own bakery, and farmed dairy cows, poultry, cattle, pigs, sheep; and grew potatoes, grain and other crops. They also had a very good orchard. The house and lands were purchased in 1971 for £250,000 Irish pounds by the Dept of Agriculture. It was opened as an agricultural and horticultural college – now known as Kildalton College. In this project ,w e create a new canteen for Kildalton college . The new canteen has 2 level , ground floor has the kitchen , toilets and the canteen . The second floor is the cafe .

Summary and A1 poster of My Dissertation (How BIM going to be utilized in The Arabian Gulf States )
Waterford Institute of Technology . Department of Architecture Technology How BIM is being utilized in The Arabian Gulf States By Mohammed Hassan Aladwani (20051281) INTRODUCTION Building Information Modeling (which is simply referred to as BIM) refers to a process that involves generating and managing the digital representation of the functional and physical characteristics of different places. The models are usually exchanged and networked in order to support the decision making processes. The software of BIM is highly significant to government authorities, businesses, and individuals. BIM is critical in planning, designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining physical infrastructures that are diverse. These include communication utilities, roads, ports, bridges, and buildings. The research proposal is on how BIM is going to be useful in the Arabian Gulf states. The dissertation is about carrying out research in Arabian Gulf states projects. For example, the government of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries are going to embark on a number of projects in the coming years. These projects are supposed to be done before 2020 because those countries will be hosting massive events such as the Qatar world cup in 2022, as well as the Dubai Expo 2020. The purpose of this research is to figure out how BIM is being utilized to build those projects
AIM The main objective of this research is to consider if B.I.M. technology is a viable option for countries in the Gulf States to use for their building needs.
OBJECTIVES The study aims to: 1-Determine if B.I.M. is a realistic option for countries in the Gulf States to use. 2-Examine the practical working example of Qatar Dubai use of B.I.M. 3-Assess the impact of B.I.M. technology in the Gulf States and worldwide
Projects which has been done by BIM in The Arabain Gulf States
building SMART ME study in 2010 A study done by building SMART ME in 2010 indicates that several major sectors in the Gulf countries are adopting BIM technology. This is after realizing many applications of BIM technology in construction industries. The adoption of the BIM technology had been moderately adopted by both private and government institutions with a 25% adoption rate. This indicates a lag behind in adoption of the technology when compared to other western countries and the USA.
INTERVIEWS Several professionals in the engineering, design and construction industries were interviewed to give information about the knowledge, benefits and challenges of implementing BIM. “BIM is very different in terms of its ability to reduce energy consumption, reduce wastage, and save spaces, and it is especially unique in countries like the Gulf state countries, which are facing huge developments, and where there is a need to finish a wide variety of projects very soon, due to events being hosted there shortly. As an example, in 2010, I remember the Taif Municipality had a problem with its Okath Gate project. The problem was that 2D plans weren't sufficient to give it the imagination of a 3D view. This meant the plans had to be redrawn again to make sure of the 3D View . Also there was a great deal of time lost, resulting in costs going over budget. I felt that my colleagues who were working on the project became very dis-satisfied with the inefficiencys. The experience meant that I am much more in favour of working on a project that uses BIM technology. It is just much easier to work with. Its error correction from the first stage of the project to the final stage is just so much more accurate than the old methods. ” Sultan Alzaidi - manager of engineering office - Saudi telecommunications company . “BIM technology is easier,more attractive and enjoyable than the other technologies. It allows all workers in any projects to edit the model quickly and easier to get better end -results than AutoCAD. Challenges likely to face it in Gulf States include the difficulties of getting a team of members together who can use BIM efficiently. Training is lacking for many specialists. To some extent BIM will be biggest solution to solve work clashes while eliminating all possible mistakes during the designing of the project, which would have been very expensive for them to edit in the future . ”I think BIM will change engineering design in the Gulf States.
The new Qatar’s National Museum. The museum is located in an area of 1.5 million square feet with 430,000 square feet of space. The designers worked on a structure resembling a desert rose with the rich culture and heritage of Qatar. It has interlocking disks resembling a desert rose. With the design being applied in every part of the building, the only technology that could easily produce satisfactory results was BIM technology
There is also the Al-Wakrah Stadium that is based in Qatar. It has been designed, constructed and managed using the BIM technology. Its construction was done adhering to world standards to host the 2014 world cup as the only technology that could reduce resource wastage and save time while producing high quality work were the 3 dimension technologies.
A. Change the organizational culture Many firms have been against changing and adopting the new ways of technology. The organizational culture is important when it comes to adopting new technologies as everyone in the organization has been accustomed to the traditions. B. Training and education Many people do not know BIM since they have not been trained about it. People are ignorant about a new technology, especially if they are not informed what it is. Many Gulf States need to implement this technology by designing BIM courses to be offered in several of the top universities and middle level colleges. C. Advertising the new technology New technology is learned about through public relations systems where people are informed through advertisements on social media and other traditional channels. Professional organizations should take initiatives in informing the potential property developers of the new technologies.
“ Jaber Al Shehri, an official in the engineering office, Ministry of Education. “BIM programs allow projects to be managed and monitored well. It also guides the contractors to achieve the aims of the projects in less time. Countries like Saudi Arabia or some of the Arabian Gulf States countries need to practice BIM technology to avoid errors encountered in designing buildings. I think BIM could be one of many reasons that has helped some countries like the USA , Denmark or a city like Dubai, to grow so fast. ” Jamil Asali of the Architectural Department at Technical college of Taif . “As I was doing my study in W.I.T , I found that BIM went in the perfect direction for guiding the development of the world structures. BIM makes designing of structures much easier with greater perfection. BIM technology should be applied in every construction, and reduce relying on the old tools as they are more tiresome and not cost and time saving. Previous tools were faced with many errors during the project design and implementation. These errors have been solved by BIM which has provided the solution for this problem. I was working in a commercial building project in the capital of KSA, Riyadh and in the advanced stages of implementation we realized that a few beams were bigger in size when compared to the others, so this affected the extension of conditioning. I believe that if we had applied BIM from the initial process, we could avoid such errors and save time as the projects progressed, ” Saleh Abdulattif, an architectural student in Waterford Institute of Technology, observed.
Al Mohanna is a sixty-seven storey building designed, constructed and managed through BIM technology. It is located alongside Corniche Road with a total area of 182,000 square meters. The facility holds offices, restaurants, residential apartments,a hotel and a spa. The owner of the building, Dr. Najeeb, decided to use the concept of ArchiCAD BIM after attending a five-day training course on ArchiCAD. Dr. Najeeb was able to navigate the BIM models, which were designed to be used in the Al Mohanna towers
Many professionals observed that BIM technology could save a lot in the process of construction. Future operations in constructions are poised to change due to the emergence of new BIM technologies. Some respondents quoted having difficulties in adapting to the BIM technology since they had been accustomed to using AutoCAD. Respondents said it was quite demanding to adapt to the new technology, as those who changed from AutoCAD to BIM faced hard times understanding the technology. ArchiCAD and Revit can be expensive for small organizations but they are worth buying and using. “These can be useful for small projects for small companies. BIM will have an effect on the construction industry, although not much, ” Hassan Al Adwani, the owner of Al Hassan Construction Company. „BIM helps determine the financial value of a project without going into details about the hard copies. This BIM technology gives more than the AutoCAD can give.” From the observations made across the interviews, many industry professionals are aware of the BIM technology but are somehow reluctant to adopt it. Many interviewed respondents observed that learning BIM technology can be challenging and can take time to master. " The accountant of the Al Hassan Construction Company Jamaal Ba awad .
RESULTS After an intensive examination of the viability of BIM technology in the building and construction industries, it is apparent that all the visited and contacted sources of information agree BIM is benficial to the industry as a whole. The previous research has shown that BIM is effective in eliminating errors in the building and construction industry. The previous studies have indicated a low rate of adoption of the BIM technology. This finding agrees with this previous paper.It has found that the adoption is still at a low rate despite the known benefits. The firms and construction companies have had slow rates of adopting BIM, quoting many challenges. These firms have not recognized the economic value of adopting BIM, and they are also of the opinion that training the staff on new software and for new skills is costly financially and in terms of time. The firms also believe that the supposed benefits are of low value when compared to the resources used. It is suggested that governments are only concerned with its projections not exceeding certain limits, when the BIM technology becomes mandatory. A few governments have tried to help the adoption of the technology .Good examples are the Nordic countries like Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, where legislation is in place to guide the implementation of the BIM project. The government of the UK has a centrally manned programme that aims at ensuring the building and construction companies are at pace with new developments. The UK government project aims at placing its contractors in the global market by making them the best, and consequently increasing their chances of obtaining global contracts. The technology has the mentioned benefits of improving management, reducing resource wastage, allowing efficient and close monitoring, eliminating building and clashing errors, accurately giving the materials and other resources needed (Azhar pp. 241-252). The project is time and cost saving as it gives all drawings and gives calculations of the materials needed. For project owners and controllers, it gives them an easy time of monitoring, as it gives the finest details of the materials used.” No cheating”, as Dr. Najeeb observed during the construction of the Al Mohanna Trade Center. If industry stakeholders can adopt the use of BIM technology, a greater amount of resources would be saved. The countries will be saving a lot of resources as the UK has established that if all constructions can be done using BIM technology, it could be saving £2 billion annually. This research work expected to have a higher rate of adoption of the BIM technology but the adoption rate is still slow at prompting specific action from stakeholders in the industry. With the work done to establish the adoption of the BIM technology in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf States, it has been established that Qatar and the UAE have tested the benefits of BIM technology and therefore it is practical for the industry to adopt the technology.
D. Form task forces to assess the rates, pricing and other factors included in the adoption of the technology Since the new BIM technology is not well known by stakeholders, it is recommended that a task force be formed to assess how many people are aware of the new technology and how many are applying it.
E. Governments should be involved in making it mandatory for companies to adopt BIM To fasten the adoption of the technology, governments need to put legislations in place to force the building industry to adopt the technology. Governments have big roles to play in the adoption of BIM technology as an organized approach is likely to involve all the stakeholders.
