easy manipulation tools provided by Bentley
products allowed construction staff to simulate different ways of doing the construction.

rework, risk, and uncertainty. Because most modifications need to be done during a platform shutdown, everything needs to fit right the first time to
avoid delays from offshore rework, postponing
This project in Brazil involves pipe and structural
modifications made to offshore platforms. The firm
used laser scanning and 3D modeling for this
revamp and retrofit work to reduce construction
The greatest impact of Bentley products was the
review of the project in 3D during fabrication and
before construction. 3D visualization and the
In projects where the main work is modification,
an accurate 3D visualization of the construction
site with the newly designed pipe or structure
included is a valuable tool. It allows last-minute
modifications of conditions not observed during
design phase, and enables construction procedures to be defined and communicated—so the
construction and planning teams start speaking
the same language.
The use of CloudWorx by the design team
increased the design quality and avoided many
trips to the offshore platform to collect information
every time the scope of project was changed. ;

construction. It was also helpful for publicity to
extract images as JPEG files to use on Web pages
and for advertisements.
Sewon Cellontech found that it could save time with
3D models and could discover errors or interferences that might have been missed in 2D drawings. ;
The company used Bentley Architecture,
MicroStation, and Bentley HVAC to create 3D
models. After the design was complete for the
structure and facilities, drawings were extracted
from the models, increasing project efficiency.
Also, the 3D models, navigation, and PDF
animations helped nonengineers more easily
understand the work process.
The Bentley texture mapping tools were very useful to create realistic images of equipment and
structures in the materials that would be used in
