For this $500,000 project in Chennai, India, Ramboll prepared passive fire
protection (PFP) upgrade drawings based on existing structural drawings,
incorporating PFP upgrade as-built details, legends, and markups. After
scanning hard copies for digital images, the project team created digital base
drawings and upgrade as-builts that can be used more effectively in the future.
To achieve the high productivity required for this project, the team customized
MicroStation to meet the standards mandated by the client. Designers used
MDL and macros to custom build the standards for symbology, templates,
and patterns. Numerous patterns were created to represent the different PFP
coatings. The PFP as-builts can now be updated in the field.
Bentley products—specifically Project Wise, MicroStation, and InRoads—enabled our
project to be seamlessly managed and integrated from
conceptual design to real-world construction.
