    Application of BIM Strategy for Shenzhen Qianhai Municipal Infrastructure

    Shenzhen, Guangdong, China

Project Summary


Project
In Shenzhen, Guangdong, China the Qianhai Cooperation Zone is undergoing concentrated construction across 14.92 square kilometers of reclaimed land, valued at nearly CNY 390 billion. The development includes more than 180 kilometers of roads and 32 kilometers of rail lines aboveground and belowground, and CNY 68.2 billion in infrastructure. Huadong Engineering Corporation Limited (PowerChina) led BIM implementation and coordination for the 17 designers and two constructors working on multiple, interconnected projects in the region.

Solution
Using Bentley’s BIM solutions Huadong Engineering's daily management and coordination of BIM execution ensured that project participants leveraged the technology to solve the numerous challenges. Overlapping planning, geotechnical, and geographic 3D models of the Qianhai Cooperation Zone created a comprehensive digital model for use in checking construction work against the multi-discipline 3D design models. The 3D reality model of the construction zone also provided a GIS-based view for spatial coordination of projects.

Outcome
BIM implementation provided unified technology standards that enabled disparate engineering teams to work more efficiently. Under the BIM strategy, 3D collaborative design workflows helped finalize the design schemes in 50 fewer days and saved more than CNY 21 million in averted rework. Bentley's BIM technology was utilized throughout the planning, design, geotechnical, and construction stages to deliver a comprehensive city model that will be used for lifecycle management of the municipal infrastructure.

Software
ContextCapture created the reality mesh based on 35,000 photos of an 18-square-kilometer area. Inspection of the worksite through the reality mesh was five times more efficient, allowing 20 site visits per day, saving CNY 5 million. The 3D design models built with AECOsim Building Designer, Power InRoads, Bentley Substation, Bentley Raceway and Cable Management, and other products reduced errors, omissions, collisions, and deficiencies. Navigator streamlined BIM reviews and issue resolution.

Outcome/Facts
  • Huadong Engineering benutzte die Baumanagement-Plattform BIM für das Management der BIM-Anwendung, der Kollaboration, des digitalen Transfers, der Fortschritte, der Qualität, der Kosten und der Sicherheit.
  • ProjectWise verkürzte die Kommunikationszeit und verbesserte die Zusammenarbeit.
  • Das umfangreiche 3D-Modell der Qianhai Cooperation Zone verband Planung mit geotechnischer und geografischer Vermessung sowie Mapping-Informationsmodellen.
  • Die Simulation von Bausequenzen in den Projektclustern minderte das Risiko und verhinderte Kostenüberschreitungen auf dem engen Baugelände.
Quote:
  • „Die digitale 3D-Plattform von Bentley löste die schwierigen Probleme der technischen Gesamtplanung und der Managementplanung für das Qianhai Infrastruktur-Bauprojekt. Indem wir Probleme wie Fehler, Auslassungen, Kollisionen und Mängel schon bei der Projektplanung und beim Entwurf angehen und im Vorfeld eine Bausimulation durchführen konnten, umgingen wir die Management- und Kontrollrisiken sowie die Vergeudung von Investitionen aufgrund einer nicht perfekten Planung. Wir führten eine Konstruktion mit Digital Engineering durch, womit wir eine solide Grundlage für die Konstruktion des ‚Smart Qianhai‘ legten.“
