How BIM Intelligence Can Reduce Time and Costs for Your Precast Girder Bridge Projects 

Making the move from 2D drafting to 3D modeling for precast girder bridges is easier than you might think, and it comes with major benefits to project timelines, quality control, and costs. Join experts from Allplan as we present a new workflow for modeling your precast girder bridges using a familiar 2D process. You’ll learn how to use 2D drafting to develop a 3D model, which can resolve conflicts and errors before they reach the shop and the field. With the model data, you can automatically produce accurate shop tickets and bills of materials. Plus, see how your Allplan model can be used to better optimize downstream processes like purchasing, fabrication, and erection, giving you a competitive advantage without increasing engineering spending. 


Learning Objectives: 

  • See Allplan’s signature 2D-to-3D workflow in action on a precast girder bridge project
  • Increase project quality and reduce costs with automated clash detection, shop tickets, bills of materials, and more
  • Leverage models to provide more complete information to purchasing, fabrication, and erection teams
