Collaboration with the help of Trimble Quadri is of great use in order to efficiently design and build the new town district of Barkarbystaden outside Stockholm. With a goal of 14,000 new homes, thousands of new workplaces and all related infrastructure by the year 2032, it is a very complex project.
COWI and the Swedish Transport Administration use Trimble Quantm to find the best road corridor for a new road on the west coast of Sweden. The tool makes it possible to automate large parts of the analysis process to effectively evaluate all possible road lines.
Multidisciplinary model design and collaboration using Novapoint and Quadri has been an effective combination in Tyrén's planning of the major public roads at the new Norrbotnia railway.
New planning technology, new contract methodology, and digital communication and project management, ensures an effective planning process and socioeconomic benefits on a new E18 road stretch on Norway´s southern coast.
Norway's largest joint venture construction project for road and rail is being planned by a project-specific consulting company – using a special-purpose infrastructure planning technology to maximize control on progress and costs.
As the first company in the Nordic region, the Swedish consulting group ÅF has used Trimble's unique alignment planning system Quantm to find the optimal road line for a road project. With 100 automatically generated and rated alignment alternatives to choose from, planning time and construction costs are significantly reduced. The environment, culture sites, fauna, urban constraints, etc. were taken into account.
Working with a holistic view in projects is a strategic principle in Norconsult. Therefore, BIM has become a key measure in their engineering design of civil infrastructure – using Novapoint and Quadri.
The TaaLa road project in Finland – a major upgrade of a 28 kilometres Highway 6 stretch – using a four operators' alliance model and two different design systems – puts the data model functionalities on a real test.
NCC is expanding the Svealand railway line with double tracks on the stretch between Strängnäs and Härad in Sweden. Close collaboration with the design engineers and a strategic use of digital BIM models from the early stages has enabled a smooth and efficient project.

Model-based collaboration across disciplines and project players is a key factor in staying competitive, COWI believes. A holistic commitment to BIM has strengthened COWI as one of the Nordics' leading infrastructure design consultancy companies.
