What happens when the best engineering firm and the best construction company join forces for an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) company highway project? A dream team is created, where each party’s expertise creates synergy for project success. EPC arrangements are becoming more popular in the infrastructure sector, and InfraWorks 360 software provides the perfect tools for both designers and contractors to not only win the bidding process, but to also get a jump-start on the 4D virtual construction model. The principle of integrated concurrent engineering used with keen collaboration and InfraWorks 360 software enabled engineering and construction decisions to be made with amazing and unexpected optimizations. The project created such positive innovation that the methods used were coined “Dreamline Engineering." Come to this class to see the surprising design decisions that resulted from review and analysis of the InfraWorks 360 model. Who knew that blasting rock for a bike path would make so much sense? This session features InfraWorks 360 and AutoCAD Civil 3D. AIA Approved

Sofia is working as a BIM coordinator at Sweco BIM infra. Prior to this, she has been a part-time employee as both road-engineer and BIM coordinator within Sweco. <br/><br/>Before she was employed in Sweco, sofia wrote a very exciting bachelor thesis together with Sweco, on the implementation and customization of digital collaboration methods in the design of infrastructure projects, with special focus on SICE methodology. (Sweco Integrated Concurrent Engineering)<br/><br/>Sofia is currently working in/on multiple large assignments in Sweco, like the Bergen Light Rail project. She has contributed with her expertise in SICE and other execution methods, and has been an important part of the BIM and ICT management in the project.<br/><br/>She is also involved in several projects as a BIM coordinator, and has been lifted BIM in Sweco to new heights through the implementation of new innovative processes and associated technology.
Terje Glad is a specialist on the BIM Infra Expert Team in Sweco, Norway. He serves as a Building Information Modeling / virtual design and construction (BIM/VDC) strategist, manager, and coordinator, and is responsible for the implementation of new technology and processes on his elite team. He has worked for many years developing and enhancing the BIM experience for users across many disciplines. Before joining Sweco, Glad worked for Focus Software, where he implemented Autodesk, Inc., and other BIM solutions at the enterprise level. He was trained as a civil engineer and land surveyor, and gained essential construction experience working on construction sites during and after his education. Being raised at the very far reaches of Norway, Glad is an expert skier, and now living in Oslo, in the sunnier months he enjoys sailing the Sweco race boat long into the evenings after work.
