BIM methodologies and technologies have been utilised to design and deliver the world’s longest double-deck bridge, saving considerable time and costs, the company behind the design of the project says.

PT Wijaya Karya (WIKA), an Indonesia-based company that provides construction, mechanical and electrical services to the civil construction company has been contracted to design the £271.6 Design and Build Harbour Road 2 Project in North Jakarta, Indonesia, which is being built with a budget of £271.6 million.

However, very early on, the project team realised that traditional 2D design methods would not help deliver the large and complex 8.95-kilometre toll road development on time and within budget.
