As part of Rail Baltica’s initiative to link five countries in Northeast Europe, Ineco was formed to provide BIM design and construction supervision for the Latvian North Section high-speed railway. The project required coordinating teams from different countries that had no prior knowledge of BIM methodologies. To overcome this challenge, meet Rail Baltica’s information management and BIM requirements, and manage thousands of deliverables, they needed to configure comprehensive modeling applications within a connected data environment to work with all stakeholders.
Ineco selected ProjectWise as the collaborative management platform. Integrating MicroStation, OpenRail, OpenRoads, and OpenBuildings for 3D modeling, they identified design clashes early. By streamlining and integrating people, processes, and systems, they calculated an estimated return on investment of 8.17%. Using iTwin applications to develop digital twins is helping them monitor and visualize project progress, estimate lifecycle cost calculations, and design more resilient infrastructure with better economic performance.
