How can 120 diverse stakeholders shape the design of a complex infrastructure project and gain community consent and agency approval—all in record time? Using InfraWorks 360 software as a collaboration tool, the owners, engineers, environmentalists, historians, regulators, news agencies, and local townspeople all worked together to affect design changes in a democratized and efficient working relationship. Using InfraWorks 360 software, we overcame the obstacles that typically plague rail projects, such as connecting villages and towns, crossing bridges and tunnels, using and repurposing existing corridors, and establishing new alignments. This was done using the ability to rapidly view, navigate, query, and create design alternatives in a real-world context. The project model provided a single source of truth for both technical and nontechnical review, assessment, and “what if” proposals. See the amazing results of this stakeholder-designed and stakeholder-approved project through their eyes. This session features InfraWorks 360, 3ds Max, and AutoCAD Civil 3D. AIA Approved
- See how the modeling of an intercity rail project in a collaborative stakeholder environment reduced approval obstacles
- See how a model is used many times over to gain acceptance for unique historical, cultural, and rights-of-way approval
- Learn how the concept of proposals is used for different design alternatives for both technical and nontechnical audiences
- See how a model supports RAMS principles (reliability, availability, maintenance, and safety)
Atle Høidalen is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordinator for Sweco. He has 9 years of experience implementing advanced model-based workflows for large-scale building and infrastructure projects in Norway. His experience spans from IT and software development to construction engineering, infrastructure planning, and virtual design. Since 2015, Høidalen has worked closely with the Norwegian Rail Administration as a BIM coordinator for the InterCity Dovrebanen project, capitalizing on the use of InfraWorks 360 software as the main tool for model coordination and communication in the preliminary phases of the project.
Kristin Lysebo is the Building Information Modeling (BIM) deliverables manager for the InterCityproject in the Norwegian Railway Administration, and she is a key leader in the Nordics for BIM standardizations and initiatives and infrastructure. She is a firm believer in common standards for road and railway modeling, and in the benefits of modelbased projects. Prior to her work with the Railway Administration, she was an infrastructure engineer and training manager at a large infrastructure software company in Norway for more than 20 years.
