In Seoul and Gangneung, South Korea, Ainthe TNS developed, produced, and
installed an innovative bicycle shed based on a new concept for green growth.
The capital cost of the project was $20,000. One challenge was to maximize
space in the shed while optimizing the number of bicycles that could be
stored. To accomplish the task, Ainthe TNS needed to integrate a design team
distributed over multiple locations.
Using Bentley design software, Bentley Structural, and Bentley Building
Mechanical Systems, Ainthe TNS leveraged the collaboration technology to
speed decision making and shorten the development period from two months
to two weeks. Using virtualization, the company also overcame the restrictions
and difficulties imposed by the long distance between Seoul and Gangneung
and succeeded in maximizing the use of the space in the shed.

Residential Building and Public Facilities
The objective of this $4.6 million residential building project in Pontassieve,
Italy, was to implement innovative energy technologies such as solar
greenhouse and photovoltaic solar panels with minimal cost as compared
to conventional building construction. An accurate feasibility study and ROI
analysis on bioclimatic architecture was adopted as the main driver for design.
Architetto Enrico Cristoforetti used Bentley design software to facilitate rapid
deployment of the project team and ensure design quality and project data
accuracy. Project collaboration and data sharing for structural and mechanical
design helped to optimize costs. Traditional structural design and construction
methodologies were also adopted to reduce costs.
