As the only train station in Denmark, copenhagen’s norreport Station serves
250,000 metro and rail passengers daily from facilities that were built in 1918.
rail net Denmark, Danish State railway, and copenhagen municipality undertook
modernization of the station, including tunnel renovation, building replacement, and
roadway rerouting. Four projects teams were designated to work simultaneously.
each team had well-defined disciplines, workflows, and cAD tools.
INNOVATION IN CONSTRuCTION
Grontmij was responsible for coordinating all the subprojects, as well as
performing engineering design on three subprojects. Using microStation,
Inroads, Bentley rail Track, Bentley navigator, and cloud Worx allowed
Grontmij to gather files in various formats from different applications and
combine them in drawings and 3D models.
matec engenharia was chosen to develop a $15 million built-to-suit medical
center in Sao paulo, Brazil. matec is an investor and the engineering-construction company for the 8,500-square-meter building designed to meet
leeD Gold certification standards. The design phase took longer than expected,
leaving just six months for construction. Installation and commissioning of
sensitive equipment in a shielded room complicated construction staging.
planning Innovation of a Medical center
Sao Paulo, Brazil
Bentley’s building information modeling software was used to streamline
workflows in multiple disciplines, allow critical analysis and error detection, and
optimize costs and scheduling. Simulating alternative assembly sequences and
logistics, then applying the results to engineering resource planning enabled
matec to visualize the best solution and saved three weeks ( 9. 5 percent) in
overall construction time.
