This presentation will go over the initial planning and execution stages of a Building Information Modeling (BIM)-driven project to create a new 2-lane tunnel under Thimble Shoal Channel in Virginia. When complete, the new tunnel will carry 2 lanes of traffic southbound and the existing tunnel will carry 2 lanes of traffic northbound. The project design is quite a challenge, as it's meant to connect to an existing highway and tunnel system in such a way as not to disturb the flow of traffic during construction. Using AutoCAD Civil 3D software, Revit software, Navisworks software, and additional Autodesk software, we were able maximize our use of the model data, not just for construction documents, but also for analysis. Coordination of not just the design data, but also the various teams and interests on the project, were integral to making it successful.
