The BIM Way of Work for Tender Stages

This abstract has open access
Abstract Summary

Dura Vermeer Group NV is a family-owned, Dutch company with more than 160 years of experience in construction, engineering, and services. The group has approximately 2,500 total employees, and approximately 1,200 of those individuals work in the Dura Vermeer Infra division. The Infra division is a multidisciplinary, 'one-stop-shop' that seamlessly coordinates knowledge and activities. It works from local operating companies specialized in regional projects, and from specialist teams for large, national projects in the Netherlands

As a result of this BIM adoption, the Infra division slashed tender time by 50 percent for the tender rail track Geldermalsen, supported by high-quality, 3D, contextual models with enablement of virtual risk scenario mitigation. 3D modeling products have 75 percent penetration across the whole organization. The intention is to adopt and drive 3D model usage higher than 80 percent by 2020. In addition to the planned increase in adoption and usage of 3D modeling products over the next two years, Autodesk has “plugged in” the internal specialists who positively influenced the BIM transformation and project performance.

The Lingense Alliance—consisting of Dura Vermeer, ProRail, and Mobilis—is the team slated to work on rail track Geldermalsen beginning in 2019. The project includes increasing the track capacity in and around the city of Geldermalsen by constructing a third track, widening the railway bridge, and removing the existing traverse which will come back in the form of a tunnel under the station. 

In the city of Tricht, two ground-level transitions will be removed, and a new peripheral road will be built, which will perform as an underpass. By leveraging the BIM way of working, the project is expected to reach completion by 2021
