Project Description

BANK METRO STATION

Development of 3D and 4D models to support the planning of construction works for the optimization of the capacity of the Metro Bank station in London

Client: DRAGADOS

Year: 2011

INGECID’s action within the project to optimise the capacity of the Bank metro station in London is divided into three phases. In the first phase, starting from 2D documentation, an advanced three-dimensional modeling is developed in which the information of each element is incorporated (BIM Model). This modeling process is developed using Revit Architecture and 3DS Max software.

In the second phase, INGECID analyzes several possible scenarios using the Primavera Project Planner software and prepares a 4D planning of the construction process by linking the 3D model with this planning using the Autodesk Navisworks Manage software. This allows interference analysis and optimization of the construction process.

Finally, in the third phase, an interactive model is carried out through the implementation of virtual reality technology on the BIM model developed using the Unreal Engine 4 software.

The work done was published in the technical journal “NCE. NEW CIVIL ENGINEER” in the United Kingdom, as a project focused on added value and long-term social benefit.
