BIM is at the Heart of Future Infrastructure Design
As a new method of modeling, BIM enables the design of structures in the form of digital models, allowing the visualization of the progress of a project at any time; the models also serve as references throughout the infrastructure’s life.
BIM is already a reality for SYSTRA. Our teams are designing the infrastructure of the Grand Paris Metro using BIM, as well as that of the Bogota Metro and Crossrail in London. The Möbius team, led by the Group and Map3, has also won a BIM design challenge for a Hyperloop line in the United Arab Emirates.
In the United States, BIM was deployed on the WMATA Andrews Federal Center Bus Operations and Maintenance Facility in Prince George’s County, MD.
