Simplifying BIM for infrastructure design, planning and operations

To pilot BIM on this bridge upgrade project, Thinkproject was introduced as the BIM software of choice.

BIM used during A99 motorway bridge project


During ongoing upgrades to the A99 motorway, several bridge structures were to be renewed. For this infrastructure project Building Information Modeling (BIM) was utilised through the design, implementation planning, operation and maintenance phases.

  • "In the project management of engineering structures of the Autobahndirektion Südbayern, drawing management from Thinkproject has been used as standard for years. Within the scope of this project Thinkproject is extended for use on BIM projects and archiving is used for the digital building file. Once again, Thinkproject impressively proves its individual flexibility.”

    Head of Bridge Construction & Civil Engineering Southern Bavaria


Introducing teams to BIM affords them more clarity and efficiency. Project managers must ensure all parties are using the technology effectively through a central platform to get the most benefits. To ease onboarding, an intuitive, structured process needed to be implemented.

With Virtual Design & Construction Management, the project team mapped out their requirements for the use of BIM whilst carrying out the works. For example, 2D drawings were to be derived exclusively from the models, with special attention being paid to data exchange and the use of interfaces.


Thinkproject supported this BIM pilot project for work phases draft planning, implementation planning, and execution of construction works.

Within the platform, the client’s information requirements were created, which served as the basis for creating BIM flow charts. Information was then able to be checked automatically.
