Case study: Multiconsult

Transportation route expansion

BIM streamlines road improvement project

Project Summary
Multiconsult AS, a leading firm of consulting engineers and designers in Scandinavia, used Autodesk Building Information Modelling (BIM) solutions to develop early-stage designs for a large transportation route expansion that also included a new bridge. Using InfraWorks civil infrastructure design software, the team developed multiple alternatives and visualisations more quickly and cost-effectively.

Insightful preliminary design
Using Autodesk BIM for infrastructure workflows, the team was able to quickly aggregate data from disparate sources and then develop and simulate multiple preliminary design alternatives in the context of the existing environment.

Create compelling proposals
Using an intelligent model, instead of 2D tools, gave the team time to develop 17 road alternatives and 8 bridge designs. Multiple alternatives provided more insight earlier in the planning stages.

Exceed client expectations
Unlike presenting in 2D, the data-rich 3D visualisations made possible by Autodesk BIM for infrastructure software provided a clearer view of the design concepts, raising the quality while meeting time and cost limits.

Improve engagement with stakeholders
Multiconsult demonstrated how different options could reduce traffic congestion and how the bridge would look from various locations. High-resolution animations were posted on the website to help explain the proposals.
