BIM helps municipality of Nijmegen widen rivers
Engineering firm uses BIM to model, coordinate and plan a river-widening project to prevent flooding in the municipality of Nijmegen as part of a massive flood prevention initiative designed to improve environmental conditions in more than 30 of the Netherland’s locations.
Widening the River Waal
Coordination with a single model
A single model for all temporary and permanent structures— aggregated from models with information from ten different disciplines across multiple organizations— made coordination and scheduling possible.
Coordination in the field
Cloud-based services gives team members almost anywhere, anytime access to project models on mobile devices transforming the way they communicated.
Clash detection in real time
With a consolidated model, iNFRANEA identifies clashes, and helps the team to constantly monitor potential interface risks, helping to resolve more than fifteen major interface conflicts on the project.
Management of temporary structures
iNFRANEA uses a BIM-based process to plan movements of the ever-changing temporary structures on the project, and map around dangerous existing conditions including unexploded WWII bombs underground in nearby areas.
