To provide Hainan’s local residents and visiting tourists safer, faster, and more convenient traffic services, a section of the G98 Roundabout Highway is being reconstructed. The 6.4-kilometer project features road, bridge, and tunnel engineering works, presenting construction difficulties and coordination challenges compounded by a tight schedule. Tianjin Municipal Engineering Design & Research Institute tried resolving these issues using third-party CAD software, but the modeling features were incapable of handling the large-scale data and complex multidiscipline design.
After considering their options, the design institute selected ProjectWise and OpenRoads for collaborative modeling and information sharing. They established a digital project management platform, enabling the construction team to visualize the design and gain a better understanding of the scope. The institute improved efficiencies and productivity to deliver the project 15 days ahead of schedule. They developed a digital twin model, establishing a virtual, smart construction site, avoiding rework and errors estimated to save 10% in costs.
