Barclays Bank PLC
Barclays uK Banking Space-Asset capture and “Branch on a Page”
Coventry, United Kingdom
the goal of this project was to accurately record space data throughout
Barclays’ U.K. branch network of 1,733 properties and be able to track a
number of new components in the property portfolio based on the outsourced
architects’ CAD drawings.
Using Project Wise and Bentley Facilities linked to a relational database,
Barclays can now measure the return on investment in space in its various
properties; perform better future forecasting, budgeting, and planning; better
understand the ratio of customer space, back-office space, and other bank
areas; and free up space by knowing where potential disposable areas are
within the network.

Bentel Associates International
Johannesburg, South Africa
the Maponya Mall project is a hallmark of Johannesburg’s growing economy
and a retail landmark and destination for Soweto’s 4 million residents.
Architects meticulously crafted sophisticated and complex organic forms into
the design of the facility, especially at the mall’s entrances, throughout the
food court, and within other focal points of the facility.
The geometric resolution to these organic forms was so complex that they
were remodeled 45 times. Design variables such as input from the structural
engineer, value engineering, and material constraints greatly affected the
workability of these entities. To solve the complex geometric problems
posed by these flamboyant organic elements, the design team used Building
Information Modeling software from Bentley.
