Qatar Rail: Accomplishing a BIM Vision
Autodesk University
Collapse Expand


Qatar Rail is in the process of constructing a state-of-the art railway system valued at more than USD$40 billion and comprising of a 37-station metro and a 38-station light rail transit to support Qatar's 2030 Vision. One of the key decisions made at the start of the project involved a comprehensive contractual Building Information Modeling (BIM) mandate. The BIM process is currently being used extensively by all contractors in the design and construction phases of the project, and will soon be used as the foundation for the maintenance management system and throughout the eventual operations and maintenance of the railway. This class will take the attendees through the journey of Qatar Rail's one-of-a-kind BIM implementation from design through to operations. You will receive a thorough account of the successes, challenges, and lessons learned from the point of view of an owner/operator that has embarked on one of the most ambitious infrastructure BIM programs ever attempted.
