Description

Description

Municipal infrastructure engineering projects like mass rapid transit, improved sewers, and water mains have been booming over the last few years due to population growth and a focus on better urban planning to do more with existing city-owned property and road networks. For every project, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) is required to do a full investigation of existing underground assets before the design is complete and certainly before shovels hit the ground. In this session we will first look at various best practices using AutoCAD Civil 3D software to build intelligence into SUE data sets and Navisworks software for performing clash analysis between existing utility objects and design objects. We will then end the session using InfraWorks 360 software to present our combined model to others in the Project Team. Using InfraWorks 360-Collaboration software, the session will show some inventive mobile field capability for viewing, photo, and data capture that you can post to the model.
