A better collaborative managementThe project stakeholders work together in a common work environment that is dedicated to this process. This environment allows them to access or share data in a more reliable way, avoiding duplication or email exchanges.
Design review and monitoring in a BIM digital model on a project for RTE
The model is used as a support for discussions during meetings and as a basis for feedback on points to be discussed.
Interactive data used on the « Hauts de L’Est » road project
Thanks to BIM digital tools, the geometry defined by the linear design teams becomes a dynamic input data for the design of engineering structures.
A better collaborative management
Improving CommunicationYour project is understood immediately when it is integrated into its environment and represented in 3D, whether for the team working on the project or for the general public during the consultation phases. The digital model can be used via enhanced or virtual reality applications.
The Vaucouleurs Dam : understanding the projects potential
The model helped the stakeholders to contextualise the project within a site that is limited due to environmental issues. This model was produced by combining BIM models produced during the design phase.
Brétigny-sur-Orge, « Live » discussions during public meetings
On this busy railway line, public consultation via BIM model demonstrations, showed that the project took into consideration and that it did not visually impact the historical monuments that are listed in the area.
A Better control of quality and risksBy simplifying the synthesis work, regardless the project phase, BIM makes it possible to anticipate risks or errors which, by using a traditional design, would have been detected later or discovered during construction phase. This improvement on the quality of projects that are carried out represents significant savings.
Management of perimeters in the case of co-active building sites
For urban operations with co-active construction sites, BIM allows better spatio-temporal management of the perimeters for the collaboration between several project owners and/or urban developers. The design of the Nanterre - La Folie (Eole) station was able to adapt to the construction of a building planned above the railway tracks and the construction of an urban footbridge.
ZAC Renard, several constructions sites side by side:
In collaboration with the developers of the project, BIM makes it possible to verify the interfaces of related construction sites. For example, site installations and the positioning of cranes were processed within the digital model. Site accesses were also approved with the phasing of the road works.
A Mantes, identification of all sorts of interface conflicts
In joint-activity projects, BIM makes it easier to identify interface conflicts, particularly between several disciplines: On the railway triangle of Mantes, a gauge problem on the track nearest a viaduct under construction was resolved following the synthesis review.
Detecting design flaws for the A57 project
The design work was based on the detection of clashes, focused on two technical areas. This work enabled the identification of issues to be addressed and the outline of technical solutions to be applied.
Optimising time and costModelling all the infrastructure elements enables to minimise costs and rendering the project realistic especially by analysing the different options available. The modelling also allows the analysis of the work schedule issues, via a 4D phasing model.
Pavement construction phasing on the A7 motorway
The construction of pavements on this unusual project for the reconstruction of a structure under a motorway is subject to multiple restrictions, particularly with regard to the use of materials and maintaining traffic flow. The modelling of the different pavement layers helped to develop a work schedule.
4D phasing for the construction of an axle bench
Railway site Levallois : The 4D phasing of the axle bench confirmed that the mutualisation of two operations initially distinct in terms of planning was finally possible, thus optimising the time needed to launch.
On a high-speed line, analysis of alternatives to reduce costs
The project optimisation phase, which aimed to reduce costs, was based on the modelling of different route alternatives and the technical parameters of the project. The modelling of the different disciplines allowed an exhaustive comparison of the options studied
Optimising resources and environmental impactsThe project is situated in its environment by using a BIM model, which becomes an essential support for highlighting environmental issues, thus enabling decisions to be made rapidly. The use of data on the materials used in the structures allows the project to be iterated and thus to optimise construction resources.
BioBIM, a pioneering project highlighting of environmental issues
With this research project, winner of the FEREC tender offer, setec is introducing environmental issues into BIM models at an early stage to ensure that the Avoid, Reduce and Compensate approach works effectively. In partnership with a software publisher specialising in living organism dynamics, both the population statistics and the BIM models were interactive.
Reporting dynamic material quantities
The regular analysis of the earthmoving volumes of operation HS2, through the BIM model and the automation of the quantity reports, allows better evaluation of the reuse of materials to be predicted.
Preparing for the management and exploitation of infrastructureThe digitisation of assets allows the operator to know better and thus optimise its operation and maintenance. In the case of new projects, it also means capitalising on BIM models and all of the documentation produced during the project to help the operator to operate the infrastructure smoothly.
Visibility checks at the exit of Mantes Maintenance Centre
The location of railway equipment on platforms (catenary poles, streetlamps, etc.) can hinder visibility, particularly in curves. Thanks to the digital model, it was possible to perform visibility checks of safety signals in an operating situation, from the drivers cabin. By relocating this equipment at the design stage, thanks to these "virtual tours", it was possible to avoid the classic deviations observed during the construction phase and during testing.
BIM data management for the A36 project
The survey carried out directly in BIM on the A36 project enabled the preparation of the infrastructure's operational phase and avoided the reconstruction of a model once the work was completed.
The Mallemort Bridge, towards a digital twin of the infrastructure
With the development of a tool dedicated to digital twins of engineering structures, setec provides, in addition to a unique platform for accessing information, a new vision of eventual risks.
Having BIM in your luggage
The modelling and assembly of baggage sorting equipment in the environment of the future operating site allows the constraints of operation and maintenance of the equipment to be taken into account. These new methods have now become necessary on such critical systems.
