    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 utilizó la plataforma de gestión de construcción BIM para gestionar la aplicación de modelado de información de negocios, la colaboración, la transferencia digital, el progreso, la calidad, el costo y la seguridad.
  • ProjectWise redujo el tiempo de comunicación y mejoró la cooperación.
  • El modelo integral en 3D de la zona de cooperación de Qianhai combina modelos de datos de topografía y cartografía geotécnica, geográfica y de planificación.
  • La simulación de las secuencias de construcción dentro de los grupos de proyectos, redujo el riesgo y evitó costos adicionales en la zona de construcción condensada.
Quote:
  • "La plataforma de tecnología digital en 3D de Bentley eliminó los difíciles problemas asociados a la planificación técnica y la gestión general del proyecto de construcción de infraestructuras de Qianhai. El tratamiento de los errores, omisiones, colisiones y deficiencias en la etapa de planificación y diseño del proyecto, además de la simulación de la construcción por adelantado, nos permitió evitar los riesgos de gestión y control y las pérdidas de fondos asociadas a un diseño imperfecto. Hemos conseguido la construcción de ingeniería digital y hemos sentando una base sólida para la creación de Smart Qianhai".
