This $73 million project relocated 6.8 miles of U.S. 35 to a four-lane controlled
access road that included six at-grade intersections, one interchange,
28 culverts, and more than 10 million cubic yards of earthwork. Kokosing
Construction and E.L. Robinson Engineering used GEOPAK to quickly assess
various roadway vertical profiles and provide a cost-effective design within a
tight construction schedule.
Using MicroStation and GEOPAK, the team significantly reduced the overall
volume of earthwork from the original estimate to save West Virginia taxpayers
crucial transportation monies. GEOPAK was also instrumental to the project
team’s successful bid, which was significantly under the engineer’s estimate
and $30 million less than the next responsive bidder.
EGIS-Ganga Expressway DPR
Greater Noida to Ballia, India
EGIS-India participated in the design of the Ganga Expressway from Greater
Noida to Ballia, India. When this expressway is completed, thousands of
villages located along the highway will benefit from the fast and efficient
connectivity within the area. It will also improve their quality of life both in
terms of finance and health.
The complex project required synchronization among multiple design team
members while maintaining the standards of the organization and generating
outputs with uniform details. Using S TAAD.Pro, EGIS-India saved significant
man-hours. In fact, working time was reduced to less than half the usual time
spent on similar projects.
