To modernize its project delivery, Arup sought to implement a BIM methodology that was not typically used for transportation-related
infrastructure projects. Starting with USD 30 million in campus projects in Doha, Qatar, Arup integrated all engineering disciplines, using BIM
processes to achieve cost and time reductions while improving quality and information accessibility.
Arup Madrid uses Bentley software to design 90 percent of its installations: AECOsim Building Designer for structures, buildings, and utilities;
InRoads for road design; and SewerCAD and WaterCAD for water networks. The rollout of the first projects in the Middle East where the
company has employed its new civil BIM technology strategy has already produced a 30 percent cost savings. Information quality and
accessibility also have improved.

Civil BIM Implementation for Campus Projects FINALIST
The beaches of Barcelona, along with the modernist architecture of Antoni Gaudi, are one of the city’s main tourist attractions. The goal of
this EUR 100,000 project was to analyze the sand balance on the beaches to determine how many cubic meters of sand are lost or gained
every year so the municipality of Barcelona can better protect its beaches from environmental erosion.
Using MicroStation, Barcelona Regional engineers standardized on one format, allowing engineers to work with different programs
but within the same environment. The bathymetric information was input into InRoads to create digital terrain models, which enabled
engineers to quantify sand change during the study. InRoads provided isopach analysis of surfaces and then allowed the users to easily
visualize the differences in color-coded representations.
