Danish Road Directorate Employs Digital Design and Construction to Improve Collaboration and Save Costs

To further its adoption of 3D modeling, digital design, and automated machine control, the Danish Road Directorate decided to employ new processes for the Herning – Holstebro project in Holstebro, Denmark. The USD 580 million design-build project consisted of 39 km of highway including eight interchanges, four railway crossings, and five landscape bridges. The tenders were based on design-build and disciplinary contracts. The goals of the project, which was used as a proving ground for digital design and construction, included:
To take full advantage of the collaboration between internal project members and external partners, the team standardized on MicroStation, along with Bentley Navigator, Bentley Descartes, Bentley MXROAD, and PowerCivil for Denmark. Its processes included creating an environment for all participants (even those not using the modeling and design software), so that they could take part in the digital work and information management oversight.
