Civil Engineering and ConstructionNovapoint & Quadri

Civil Construction Continuum Conference 2017

Venue: Tivoli Hotel and Congress Center, Copenhagen, 13-14 November 




Whether you are a designer, contractor or owner of infrastructure projects; this is the ultimate conference for you.

BIM for Infrastructure is the overall theme of the conference – a theme that is decisive for gaining success in civil construction projects going forward!

Why? Model-based design and collaboration across project disciplines and players have become the industry norm in civil design and construction. BIM Level 3 is now becoming the new standard in Northern Europe to gain genuine efficiency and competitiveness. Some countries even set BIM Level 3 as a national requirement for civil projects.

By attending the conference you will find out how leading regional companies use BIM Level 3 in practice already – and gain substantial benefits from it. Experience how Trimble´s unparalleled tools portfolio, Novapoint, Quadri, TILOS, Quantm, Tekla and more, is used to optimize project efficiency by using model-based design and construction. Find out how leading consultants, contractors and owners share and leverage the data-flow to collaborate with confidence – gaining outstanding benefits in planning and design as well as in construction and maintenance.

Take a good look at the comprehensive conference program. We are confident you will find topics and presentations that will be of great interest and inspiration for you.

The benefits of close collaboration between all stakeholders; National Road 6, Taavetti-Lappeenranta - Alliance project

The Finnish application of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) called Alliancing is a delivery form where the client, the contractor and the designer only have joint and common goals. National highway 6 in Finland is the third national infrastructure project to be realized using this model. The model as such emphasizes collaboration and for the designer a well-functioning software is key to enable all parties to work together toward the common goals. Several different Trimble software were used, from design to construction, with the aim of also finding the right information for operation and maintenance.

Modelling 3D reinforcement using Tekla Structures on a complicated Tunnel project

This year the construction of Mustad Concrete Tunnel, a particularly geometrical complicated construction, will be finalized. Much of the reinforcement in this structure is modelled as 3D reinforcement using Tekla Structures. This proved to be a very efficient method and was greatly beneficial for the quality assurance processes. Join this session to learn more about our new methods and experiences with 3D reinforcement modelling. In particular, we will present our new approach for parameterized automatic reinforcement.
