Overcoming Underground Challenges by Integrating Subsurface Utility Investigations with BIM Modeling

24 Jun 2021

Presentation: Underground Digital-Twin Modeling: Integrating Subsurface Utility Investigations with BIM Modeling to Optimize Preconstruction Design Development and the Construction Process
Speaker: Benjamin Weide, P.G., Senior Geophysicist, Intertek

Panel Discussion: Overcoming Underground Challenges by Integrating Subsurface Utility Investigations with BIM Modeling

  • A proper subsurface utility engineering (SUE) campaign can accurately locate unknown utilities, voids, and other geologic formations.
  • Integrating SUE findings with BIM models can inform design feasibility options understanding subsurface challenges and coordination requirements.
  • Planning for SUE activities on site.
  • Unknown underground conditions can derail a construction project by increasing costs, reducing safety and increasing risk.
  • Quality Levels D-A. Collaborate on the discussion about Intertek’s appropriate steps to enable a thorough SUE effort. 

Moderator: Benjamin Weide, P.G., Senior Geophysicist, Intertek
