Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT), MMC Gamuda KVMRT (MGKT) and AECOM are collaborating on the design and construction of the underground works for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) line. The underground works involve the design and construction of tunnels, ten stations, cross-overs, portals and escape shafts along the 13.5 km alignment from the Jalan Ipoh North portal to the Desa Waterpark south portal.
MRT are embracing the latest advances in engineering technology and are incorporating them into the implementation of the project. Most notably, MRT mandated Building Information Modelling (BIM) maturity level 2 throughout the design, construction and asset management and operation stages for SSP Line. The SSP project will likely be the first Metro Project in Asia mandating Level 2 BIM and benchmarking BS1192 collaborative workflow using a Common Data Environment (CDE).
The presentation will illustrate how the MRT-MGKT-AECOM team are collaborating using DJI drones for photogrammetry, Bentley's ContextCapture, Microstation and ProjectWise, Autodesk Revit and Navisworks to create and share 3D site models integrated with design and construction BIM. The merging of site surveys models with BIM design models is a fast, efficient and powerful way to digitally connect the design engineers with the sites along the metro alignment. The process saves time for surveyors onsite, improves communication between the client, design engineers and construction managers and reduces risks of problems occurring on site due to co-ordination and interface issues.
