Pöyry takes early adopter role in digitalized planning for German Transportation Infrastructure
Pöyry takes a big step towards digitalization by driving a large-scale implementation program for Building Information Modeling (BIM). During the last 12 months a global strategy for enterprise BIM transformation has been set aiming to create Best in Class BIM-capabilities. A core component of the plan is an early adopter program in particular for rail infrastructure BIM in the German Market. With the greenfield adoption of Autodesk Solutions for infrastructure, Pöyry obtains a leading role in digitalized planning.
The BIM implementation program is currently being rolled-out in collaboration with Autodesk consulting and is one of the biggest consulting engagements developing infrastructure BIM capabilities in Europe. The project contains the creation of technology workflows and BIM process foundations for preliminary engineering and detailed engineering for five defined BIM uses models: authoring, design review, 3D coordination, drawing production and visualization. The infrastructure program is one component of a plan involving all disciplines and business lines. The early adopter program Pöyry is currently executing with Autodesk is a natural evolution taking the capabilities to even more common and fully adopted BIM capabilities at Pöyry worldwide.
The project will enable better connectivity providing more cooperation and downstream interaction as well as services to clients. During the execution of pilot projects in German railway infrastructure, Pöyry closely communicates and collaborates with the client to ensure a shared approach towards the execution and assure certainty during the entire process. BIM facilitates the deployment of the modeling in the entire lifecycle of the building and therewith reducing future risks during the execution. At the moment, BIM for infrastructure is in a in a pilot stage at Pöyry, yet, this project is a big step towards the future of planning. "We are proud to be one of the first movers on the German Market. This innovative use of technology revolutionizes our business." says project lead Paul-Christian Max.
Gunther Deinl, head of Poyry's transportation business, also sees great potential in the early adoption, "According to our understanding at Pöyry, BIM deeply influences our future work environment and we are keen to drive the change together with our employees." The role of an engineer in modeling will develop towards digitalization and with the experts being at the core of Pöyry's business, Pöyry is committed to engage their engineers at an early stage to strengthen capabilities in digitalized planning.
