Istanbul DPEC in Istanbul, Turkey by Superunion Architects

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Article source: Superunion Architects

On a site almost without context because of its vast scale and open development plans, the Istanbul Disaster Prevention and Education Centre (DPEC) represents a new beginning for the Expo area adjacent to the Atatürk International Airport. Today, the area is a typical example of a generic, market driven development without a common goal. It consists of tall isolated buildings trying to express their individuality rather than performing as a coherent whole. The site is situated in a void between city and airport, where public space is nonexistent, isolated buildings are surrounded by their own private sea of parking.

At the early stages of the project, weekly on-line model review meetings were conducted between the owner, engineer, equipment suppliers, McCarthy and other key site contractors. During construction, specific on-line BIM conferences allowed the team to review any installation conflicts or issues and provide quick resolutions.
