Abstract(s)One of the problems in construction sites is the risk of people being run-over or hit by vehicles in the access ways and roadways. Thus, it becomes important to study methods that counteract this trend. In order to minimize the said risk, BIM-based (Building Information Modelling) technologies can be used. A case study was carried out on the (already built) East side construction site of the 2nd phase of construction of the Marão Tunnel. The main goal was to model the site, to obtain a 3D model and thus better understand the space, in order to optimize its use and propose a solution to manage in more detail the risks associated with the movement of equipment and people. With this ability to manipulate the site, by observing in 3D the best way of working, it is possible to minimize potential risk situations that might otherwise arise.
