Commenting on the project, Rich Marshalla, project manager and vice president, Sargent & Lundy, said, “We executed a very successful, advanced-generation, clean-coal technology project. The Bentley software tools were instrumental in allowing us to effectively meet the schedule and the customer’s expectations for the highly complex project.”
Marshalla continued, “For example, use of MicroStation and Bentley Navigator empowered us to improve online collaboration and reduce the quantity of comment drawing releases during the design-comment cycle phase. It also allowed us to improve contractor understanding by performing online constructability reviews and to facilitate contractor input early in the design phases. At the same time, the software made it possible for us to establish and control space allocation within the 3D model by enabling us to conduct regularly scheduled design reviews, thereby allowing the project team to reduce interferences and to stay on schedule.”
