Hafencity Dresden is an urban transformation project to turn a dilapidated area into an attractive district that features a redesigned harbor, dining areas, a promenade, and a total of 18 new buildings for commercial and residential use. Given the large project scale and various software used by the planning and engineering teams, compounded by a tight schedule, Immograph needed interoperable construction visualization technology to integrate the multisourced, voluminous data and provide a high-quality 3D representation demonstrating the interaction among the various new infrastructure.
They selected MicroStation to process the immense amounts of data into accurate 3D models. The software’s modular and hierarchal modeling structure allowed images and models to be conveniently linked and simplified change management, reducing the time it takes to make changes by 20%. Using Bentley’s application significantly improved rendering and reduced file loading times by 40%. Through accurate visualization, they optimized planning and enhanced decision-making, shortening approval processes.
