The 2022 Winter Olympic Organizing Committee contracted Beijing Shougang International Engineering (BSIE) to design and construct its new plaza in Shougang, Shijingshan District, Beijing. The new plaza, which is located in an industrial park in the northernmost area of the Shougang Industrial Zone, will retain much of the Shougang plant’s original appearance due to strict controls in place to protect the industrial heritage of the area.
The BSIE team used Bentley technology to capture and gain context and understanding of the site and existing infrastructure. By using laser scanning and point-cloud data, the team dedicated fewer resource hours to the project that would normally be used to survey and map the area. Bentley’s solutions also enabled the team to, “build a bridge” between industrial and civil engineering with information mobility and improved processes. The software addressed the needs of these two different areas of design and construction, where use of a connected data environment avoided the inherent risk of data loss when exporting and importing data between different file formats and applications.
