U.S. Army Garrison Bamberg
Project Wise and XM v8 Deployment at the u.S. Army garrison Bamberg
the u. S. Army garrison in Bamberg, germany, consists of approximately 6
million square feet of combined housing, industrial, and office space; 3,300
acres of land and supporting infrastructure; 20 miles of roadway; and an
airfield, railroad, golf course, and forestland that supports a community
of approximately 10,000. The project goal was to create an accessible,
expandable, and stable document file system to support the work processes of
the Directorate of Public Works.
This file system establishes a common platform to access drawing and
project-related information through an intuitive graphical user interface.
Project Wise, MicroStation, and Bentley Geospatial Server were used to
create the new file structure. The system’s geo-referencing search capabilities
give users immediate access to drawings, which involves the workforce more
actively in the engineering process.

BCT-H Motorpool Complex Sitework
Fort Carson, Colorado, United States
incremental funding and contracting limitations required the Brigade combat
Team-Heavy complex’s 11 projects in Fort Carson, Colo., to be designed and
constructed within a three-year period. The tight design schedule meant
that several projects had to be designed and coordinated simultaneously.
MicroStation’s file-referencing capabilities enabled civil engineers to work
concurrently on different areas of the site.
The design team created a digital terrain model (DTM) of the finished grade
for each area of responsibility. The DTMs were then used to display finished
grade contours, create utility profiles, and accurately calculate earthwork
quantities. Because drawing files could be shared among several projects, the
need to create several versions of a drawing file was eliminated and changes
in one project were created across several other projects.
