Motorway project supports regional development
The M6/M60 PPP motorway project is part of an EU corridor linking Budapest, Sarajevo and Ploce.
|Investment volume: approx. 1 billion euros|
|Route: Construction of 78 km of new motorway|
|Tunnel: 4 tunnels (3.1 km, double-tube)|
|Construction: 86 bridge structures, of which 9 are viaducts|
Strabag AG holds the concession for the motorway for 30 years, and is responsible for its design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance. As general contractor, the company is also responsible for delivering the construction works on time within a fixed price lumpsum.
STRABAG AG decided to use online project collaboration platform think project! to support its project control and management tasks.
Complete design and document management is organised via think project!
think project! manages around 12,000 construction drawings, as well as method statements, qualification documents, nonconformities and reporting. By using an online platform, information and related processes can be tracked transparently by all those involved – ensuring everyone has access to and is using the most up-to-date information.
Design and approval workflows implemented in the platform system track the contractually-defined processing times of each party, displaying missed deadlines at the touch of a button.
Multilingual mapping of all processes
The client, the independent engineer, designers, subdesigners, independent checkers, subcontractors and suppliers are integrated on the platform.
To simplify the communication between the project partners all processes are mapped in three languages: Hungarian, German and English.
Expansion of the Audi Hungaria production site
Audi Hungaria Motor Kft., the central engine supplier of the Audi Group, is expanding its Hungarian production site.
In addition to engines, the Audi TT Coupé and TT Roadster are produced at Györ, Hungary. DYWIDAG Bau GmbH was commissioned to expand production facilities with the construction of a new production hall and an adjacent office block.
Traceable, seamless planning
Transparent and traceable mapping of the planning process was particularly important for DYWIDAG, so think project! has been used for plan management throughout the project.
think project! is also used for controlling schedules, enabling deadlines for the return of plans to be stored at the start of the project while automatically calculating the target dates.
This linking of plans with key target dates enables a number of useful reports to be created, including a preview of planned deliveries, lists of missing points relating to the existing plans, lists of delays and comparisons between target and actual dates.
Accelerated communication during extension of Budapest’s airport
Ferihegy is the second-largest airport in the new EU member states. More than eight million passengers pass through it every year. think project! is used for project communication for the extension of terminal 2.
In recent times, passenger volume at Ferihegy, the airport serving Hungary’s capital of Budapest, has risen by an average of 18% each year. With a 37.25% share in the airport company, HOCHTIEF AirPort, is further forecasting that up to 10 million passengers will pass through Ferihegy annually by 2010.
Ferihegy is set to strengthen its position in central and eastern Europe over the next decade, delivering increased capacity, service quality and efficiency. To achieve this, its fundamental infrastructure is being expanded and modernised, with HOCHTIEF AirPort planning to invest around 260 million euros in development.
During the first stage, activities are focused on the expansion of terminal 2. We were commissioned by Hungarian company, Közti zrt., which is responsible for architecture. Project controller Tomlin coordinates all project-specific requirements.
Efficient project communication and structured storage of documents
think project! is used for project communication and provides support for the rapid distribution of correspondence, meeting minutes and other project documents. All dispatch operations are documented, resulting in clear, structured storage.
The think project! Design Management Module is also used to manage activities such as automated print orders and to accelerate complex inspection procedures. External inspectors – for example, fire protection experts – can also be contacted directly using think project! via a simple email interface (think project! EMailConnect).
