Danjiang Bridge named ‘Collaboration Project of the Year’ at the Construction Computing Awards 2017.
Commissioned by the Directorate of Highways of #Taiwan , the Danjiang Bridge will be the world’s longest single-mast asymmetrical cable-stayed bridge.
Located at the mouth of Tamsui River, the Danjiang Bridge is integral to the infrastructure upgrading program of northern Taiwan, enhancing accessibility throughout the region with the rapidly expanding Port of Taipei/Taipei Harbour—the region’s busiest shipping port. The bridge will also increase connectivity between local neighbourhoods and significantly reduce through-traffic in the region’s town centres.
The bridge design minimises its visual impact by using a single 200 metre concrete structural mast to support the 920 metre road, rail, cycle and pedestrian deck made from steel.
Zaha Hadid Architects was commissioned as design consultants alongside consultants in Germany and Taiwan.
Given the project’s scale and engineering challenges, as well as the geographic distance between consultant teams, ZHA elected to use @DassaultSystemes CATIA #3DEXPERIENCE On Cloud, supplied and supported by #DesktopEngineering (DTE), to implement the project. This cloud-based 3D design system provides a common 3D data platform for all parties between Europe and Asia and acted as the central data repository, or Common Data Environment in BIM terms, for the project.
Resulting in enhanced collaboration and communication across all members of the design team, the improved information flow and real-time design collaboration enabled the team to meet all deadlines with ease through improved design productivity.
Geoffrey Haines, Managing Director of Desktop Engineering explained, “Zaha Hadid Architects is bold in everything they do. This includes their design computing outlook; using this design and collaboration platform to draw on all the assets of cloud technology and deliver real benefits to distributed design teams.” #bridges#infrastructure#zahahadid#zahahadidarchitects
