4D Construction Planning Saves GBP 1 Million on UK’s Largest-ever Water Infrastructure Project

The Thames Tideway Tunnel will capture and store raw sewage and rainwater from London’s 150-year-old sewer network, preventing overflow into the River Thames. It is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the UK’s water industry. Bentley's SYNCHRO 4D workflow was used to streamline construction planning activities and to improve progress tracking and management. This has reduced the overall construction programme by 30 days, achieving GBP 1million in direct and indirect cost savings. The 25-kilometre-long tunnel is split into 24 construction sites, 11 of which are located along the river’s banks. The project involves 12 design disciplines and numerous supply-chain companies,...
