Exterior Improvement - Barrio 31 Masterplan

Customer Challenge

The project with Buenos Aires City Hall was a public project with many stakeholders and time/budget constraints. The Barrio 31 neighborhood was built with no regulation, so surveying the site through traditional methods would have taken 4 to 6 months and a team of 20+ architects.

Project Goals

It consisted of the improvement of existing houses and the construction of new ones, the provision of definitive water, sewage, electricity, gas and telephone installations; the transformation of public space with the opening of streets, squares and parks; as well as the refurbishment and construction of new community equipment (schools, libraries, health and sports centers). In this puzzle, AEC’s BIM, software and reality capture services fit in the external improvement of existing processes.


This project was made possible by implementing BIM along with a team of highly proactive people with great leadership, automated processes, and good teamwork. Otherwise, the time constraints would not have allowed for delivering such a huge amount of work (improvements to around 1100 homes were designed and fully documented).

Business Outcome

The business outcomes are: 1.Time reduced with manual work and errors through automation, from 24 to 8 hours per parcel 2.Quality assurance throughout the whole process with reduced quality control time 3.Reduced time on less important repetitive work to afford the team time to focus on more important design-oriented tasks 4.Improved documentation delivery time so work on-site would start without delays 5.Consistency gained among the team drawings 6.Design and criteria improved


This project was a success by implementing a technology that can effectively improve business outcomes and also transform reality for the better in contexts in which it is normally not applied: a low-income emergency neighborhood in Latin America.
