GHAFARI Associates, LLC
Sutter Medical Center
Castro Valley, California, United States
This 130-bed, 230-square-foot acute-care hospital is being designed and
delivered for Sutter Health in Castro Valley, Calif., by an integrated project
delivery team of 300 professionals spread throughout the United States.
GHAFARI customized a Project Wise deployment to support document sharing
needs, with an integration server hosted at its main office and 10 file storage
and caching servers deployed at other office locations.
All project documents – including 3D models, 2D CAD files, specifications, and
other supporting information – are stored on Project Wise. The system has
connected design teams and contractors distributed over multiple locations,
accelerated information sharing and communications across teams, eliminated
duplication of files, and reduced rework due to the use of outdated files.
How To Ensure Consistent and Real-Time Information
Postmasburg, South Africa
The goal of this project was to reduce design time, ensure consistency, and
enable work sharing during project development for a new iron ore plant in the
Northern Cape, South Africa. The collaboration technology applied was based
on Microsoft SQL Server Replication, Microsoft Biz Talk Server, and Bentley
solutions that include Project Wise, PlantSpace, and Bentley Data Manager.
Bentley’s data-centric solutions ensured real-time collaboration among the
more than 200 project team members in disparate locations.
