promenade champlain–phase III–Front end
The new promenade Samuel-de-champlain linear park in the city of Quebec,
canada, restored access to the St. lawrence river and transformed a blighted
semi-industrial area to an urban boulevard and promenade. The national
capital commission of Quebec retained GenIVAr for conceptual design of
phase III development, which will extend the promenade 4 kilometers eastward
to protect a wetland area.
GenIVAr used Inroads to design the alignments, profiles, and sections and
perform volumetric calculations. challenges included relocating a railway that
runs between the boulevard and river, and re-routing the boulevard. Three
alignments (one existing, two proposed) were conceptualized. microStation
and Inroads enabled the team to generate large-scale field models and prepare
initial material estimates.

Agra ring road
Agra, India, is a prominent tourist destination with three UneSco World
Heritage sites. Visitors to the Taj mahal and Agra Fort in the city and Fatehpur
Sikri on the outskirts cause traffic congestion. The state government retained
Gifford India to design a bypass connecting the nH- 2 and nH- 3 radial corridors
and extending the Yamuna expressway.
The 25.7-kilometer Agra Inner ring road and 5.5-kilometer Fatehabad road
with 2.5-kilometer elevated corridor will segregate local and through traffic.
Gifford used m XroAD to model the complicated junctions with the national
highways and Fatehabad road. S TAAD.pro analyzed all components of the
bridges under various loading conditions.
