The Dayton, Ohio, office of Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon (B WSC)
teamed with the Walbridge construction company on a $126 million design-build contract for the Infantry Brigade Combat Team Complex at Fort Stewart,
Ga. The complex will support the operations of six combat battalions with 28
buildings totaling more than 600,000 square feet.
BWSC engaged seven operating units and multiple subconsultants to
complete the design in about nine months. The team used over a dozen Bentley
products—including MicroStation, Project Wise, Bentley Architecture, Bentley
Structural, SewerCAD, and StormCAD—to produce six design packages
consisting of 850 3D design models and 2,000 2D drawing models used to
produce over 2,300 drawing sheets.
Icon City Nurnberg
The $268 million Icon City Nurnberg development is a new residential quarter
in a rural area of Nurnberg, Germany. The high-quality architectural building
design focused on the relationship between internal and external open spaces.
Open spaces included well-connected sport areas, foot paths, and cycling paths.
The project also included a new underground station. Bioclimatic architecture
was adopted with a particular focus on photovoltaic and wind energy.
One challenge was to incorporate the residential buildings within the
surrounding environment. The objective was reached by giving extra care to the
building design. Using MicroStation, the architects were able to manage and
monitor the entire project throughout the master planning and design phases.
MicroStation also enabled the control of quantity and quality standards.
