Small Project (less than $100 Million)
Empresa Desarrollo Urbano de Medellín
Colombia’s second-largest city, Medellín, is located in the Andes Mountains roughly 1,500 meters above sea level, and much of the city’s development extends up the sides of the area’s many mountains. Some of that development took place with little or no planning, with neighborhoods forming as people built small dwellings. However, many of these vibrant communities are located on land at high risk of dangerous landslides.
A public entity, the Empresa Desarrollo Urbano de Medellín (EDU) used BIM tools to plan safer communities for people living in these areas.
Medium Project ($100 Million - $500 Million)
China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Group Co., Ltd.
The Wuhan to Xi’an high-speed railway project includes the Wudangshan Station to Wangjiazhuang Tunnel segment—a passenger line spanning 8.3 kilometers. At an expected cost of USD$160 million, the line required the collaboration of experts in tunnel, bridge, station, and rail-line design. More than 50 design and engineering professionals from the China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Group joined the project team, and together they completed the design quickly by collaborating to automate and improve BIM design processes.
Large Project (over $500 Million)
Chongqing Municipal Research Institute of Design
Located in Chongqing, China, the Parallel Line of the Fourth Diversion Expressway will add much-needed transportation capacity to a growing municipality. Chongqing is a mountainous city bisected by the Yangtze River, and river crossings and mountains make up much of the 28-kilometer-long project. From start to finish, the project team relied on BIM tools to help them integrate their work-flows as they planned and designed the complex project.
