The goal of this $820 million project was to optimize a coal-based thermal
power plant design in India while keeping it safe, maintainable, and constructible.
L&T-Sargent & Lundy (SEZ Unit) used a customized in-house tool developed for
MicroStation to provide an integrated project management engineering, design,
and plant information management system.
MicroStation provided the development platform for interference-free design.
The custom software and Bentley Navigator helped maintain shorter project
cycles with existing resources and deliver higher quality. By using visualization
to coordinate the multidiscipline engineering, the project team avoided losses
due to change orders, late design rework, and procurement and construction
delays that could have reduced valuable power generation hours.
Adams Street Bridge
Troy, Ohio, United States
Built in 1922, the deteriorating Adams Street Bridge over Great Miami River in
Troy, Ohio, was eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.
So replacing it with a $7.7 million modern structure that met safety and capacity
requirements required LJB to gain community support for the project.
LJB proposed a 512-foot-long, six-span continuous prestressed-concrete I-beam
bridge that mimicked the existing arched bridge by concealing the beam-and-support structure. MicroStation’s visualization capabilities allowed LJB to
present the conceptual design to government agencies, private interest groups,
and citizen stakeholders and build consensus for the project.
