The AU$3 billion Clem Jones Tunnel (CLEM7) is one of the largest road
infrastructure projects ever undertaken in Australia. Project contractor Leighton
Contractors and the Baulderstone Hornibrook Bilfinger Berger Joint Venture
engaged AECOM and Parsons Brinckerhoff as lead designers. AECOM’s
challenge was to meet the stringent demands set by the project’s fast-track
construction approach, which saw design and construction occur simultaneously.
AECOM’s innovative design work and efficient drawing management directly
contributed to CLEM7’s opening to traffic ahead of schedule. Project Wise and
ARENIUM replaced the previous design system to ensure that searches could
be done quickly and accurately and eliminate the accidental use of outdated
document revisions. As a result, team members contributed to a smooth
transition from design to construction.

Although the A4 highway connects three of the four most important cities in
the Netherlands, it is missing sections. In fact, a notorious 7,000-meter gap
lies between Delft and Schiedam, which causes traffic jams on the adjacent A13
connecting the Hague and Rotterdam. ARCADIS created conceptual designs for
the design and construction of the Delft/Schiedam link for the Dutch government.
The project teams used Project Wise to collaborate and complete the environmental
impact analysis in parallel, which enabled the team to save significant time
finding, validating, and accessing project information. The new highway is the
most environmentally friendly highway ever constructed in the Netherlands.
