An interesting application of BIM has been used for Sightline Analysis of FIFA 2022 Stadiums in Qatar. FIFA has strict guidelines for the visibility criteria for spectator seats in a FIFA event.
Sight line occlusion and comfort analysis for FIFA Compliance Report was done using Field of Dreams, our tool for stadium and venue assessment. An LOD 100 model of the bleacher stands and the stadium was developed and C-value analysis of the individual seats were carried out to calculate the seat kill factor. This also allowed multiple evaluations based on FIFA C-Value requirements together with accurate comfort checks accounting the loss or occlusion at every seat. Seats not meeting the criteria were quickly redesigned to conform to minimum standards set out by FIFA.
