A high-tech multifunctional medical complex is being developed in Yukki, St. Petersburg to improve the quality, diversity, and accessibility of medical care to residents throughout Russia. The USD 385 million multidiscipline medical center will provide care for 700,000 patients per year and is located near several major highways, ensuring convenient access. Covering 304,000 square meters and including a cancer center and underground parking, the project presented technical and coordination challenges, compounded by a short three-year timeline. Volgogradnefteproekt wanted to streamline workflows and collaboration among the contractor, designer, and client. The team needed interoperable digital technology to integrate scheduling, facility design, and construction management on this complex project.
They selected OpenBuildings and ProStructures to generate a 3D model and construction documentation for the entire facility, using ProjectWise to manage all models and approval processes. The solution improved and accelerated decision-making and issue resolution by 20%, allowing them to overcome a 2.5-month delay in the delivery schedule. By avoiding delay costs, they saved an estimated USD 30 million. Using ContextCapture and 4D modeling enhanced efficiencies managing construction by 30%. With the Bentley iTwin platform, the team assembled and verified 3D models, which were then transferred to SYNCHRO to form a visual construction schedule. The digital twin will help with asset management during the operations phase. The project is on track to be completed by the end of 2022, then patients will be able to receive important and necessary medical treatments.
