Bridge builders are using 3D technology to create the New NY Bridge in a virtual world. By utilizing state-of-the-art building information modeling (BIM), designers can handle an astonishing amount of information with the utmost efficiency.
The BIM 3D design model allows the project team to: quantify and organize an enormous amount of data and materials; track and schedule each element of the bridge as construction progresses; integrate all environmental details associated with the structure, such as the local geography and natural lighting; ensure that construction proceeds in strict accordance with design plans; match and link millions of documents and photos to the virtual model; and provide access to future maintenance teams, who can analyze the data from mobile devices, laptops and desktop computers.
