Bergen’s Light-Rail Project Building Information Modeling (BIM) strategy was shaped by strict demands: 300-plus professional stakeholders, lots of tunnels, heavy storm events, traffic, and tracks running down the middle of Norway’s second-largest city. The unique execution plan created for this project was customized from a mix of private and government guides. The resulting plan included model specifications, level of development (LOD) progressions, quality assurance criteria, and collaboration policies. The project capitalized on iConstruct, FME, and A360 cloud-based collaboration service to automatically create and compose the federated/collaboration model. A powerful set of custom information was added to objects at this collaboration stage to further facilitate the mapped processes. Autodesk Consulting and Premium Support assisted to optimize and customize workflows. And Autodesk Consulting is currently working on a joint Autodesk, Inc./Sweco cloud solution, so the entire project team will have an updated model available every day as this project moves toward completion.
