Smart BIM solutions and services for Infrastructure

Technology and support for superior project delivery

Infrastructure projects provide the permanent assets that a society needs for sustaining its economy, promoting growth, and improving lives. The efficient management of Civil Engineering Software assets is driving the need for BIM processes in design and construction. Implementing BIM for infrastructure projects requires smart design technologies, efficient processes and workflows, and collaborative data management.

With the right solutions partner, you will work faster, smarter, be more innovative, and deliver optimized projects that will enhance your reputation. Symetri already deliver technologies, services and support to many clients who need to incorporate these processes into their traditional design workflows, helping them to deliver BIM in Infrastructure.

Implementing BIM for Infrastructure

Implementing and using BIM methodologies on an Infrastructure project can be challenging. Multiple design technologies will be deployed on a project, and the efficient sharing of design models and data between these applications will require planning and robust workflows to be in place. The data structures required for gathering and storing information about the components, systems and assets in the project will need to be defined, created and managed, ensuring they are easily updated by the project team. Location information may include coordinates with different formats and references, and linear referencing such as chainage and offset. Choosing a technology partner that can guide and support you, from project planning and mobilization through to handover will be key to your success.

Investing in early design

The National Infrastructure Commission identified that projects where investment was made in early concept design, minimized risk and improved project outcomes on both cost and quality of delivery.

Bringing digital working into the planning and concept design phases will allow you to move seamlessly through to a developed design, with the minimal amount of re-working. The use of 3D design models and digital visualization with virtual prototypes ensures that problems are identified early, and will help obtain buy-in from stakeholders.

The integration between design applications of Civil Engineering Software such as Civil 3D, Infraworks, Revit will provide the platform for building a viable offering in early stage design that can be the showcase for your business.

Collaboration breeds innovation

The best results come from effective collaboration and interdisciplinary working. This will embrace the wider project team, from client organizations and owner/operators, through to the discipline design teams and contractors, and will require partnerships that stretch well into the supply chain.

Stakeholder engagement ensures that values are aligned across the teams, and will foster the development of a joint vision for the project. Adopting appropriate technologies and methodologies will provide the support systems that will eventually help you deliver a truly collaborative environment.
