The Beijing to Zhangjiakou High-speed Rail Project will become the world’s first high-speed railway with a design speed of 350 kilometers per hour. China Railway Engineering Consulting Group Co., Ltd. (CRECG) is responsible for design and construction consulting of the 171-kilometer project. Using Bentley’s comprehensive modeling environment, CRECG’s design team significantly improved efficiency, saving around three months of design time and CNY 3 million in labor costs.
The line, which forms part of China’s preparations for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, is highly complex and includes many firsts. With 71 subsurface sections, 64 bridges, 10 tunnels, and 10 stations, the new high-speed line will be the first in China to adopt a full-lifecycle BIM approach. www.epcworld.in
