Making Collaboration Smarter

Wulkuraka New Generation Rollingstock (NGR) Maintenance Centre, Queensland

Arcadis set a new Australian benchmark for the use of Building Information Modeling - or BIM – as part of the Wulkuraka New Generation Rollingstock (NGR) Maintenance Centre, a state of the art facility developed to service and maintain 75 new, high tech passenger trains. For the first time Arcadis developed a unified platform able to integrate seven different design software packages. Arcadis’ innovative use of BIM delivered widespread benefits, including better asset management, cost accounting, environmental performance, productivity, safety and fewer errors.
