The 70-year-old Elliott Bay Seawall along the Seattle seafront could fail
during a moderate to large earthquake. The City of Seattle engaged an array
of stakeholders to participate in the USD 290 million replacement project,
including restoration of the surrounding urban infrastructure. The project
required effective communication with agencies, residents, and businesses as
well as coordination among engineering disciplines in multiple city departments
and 18 consulting firms.
Project Wise provided a centralized environment for compiling and sharing
project data, allowing the design and permitting team to quickly respond
to requests and directions. The ability to integrate with multiple CAD
platforms enabled the team to easily incorporate the Seattle Department
of Transportation’s AutoCAD-based standards and requirements. The team
leveraged Project Wise tools to encourage user autonomy, minimize I T
intervention, and raise file visibility.

The new Vuosaari cargo harbor complex in Helsinki, Finland, is comprised of the
main harbor, adjacent business, traffic infrastructure, and logistics zone and
gate area. The Port of Helsinki initiated a project to combine information about
all the harbor facilities in one map-based maintenance system. The system
provides access to documents, maintenance schedules, and maintenance
histories for about 80 structures, buildings, and systems.
In cooperation with Buildercom, Bentley developed the integrated solution
using Bentley Map for drawing maps, Project Wise Integration Server
for content management, Geo Web Publisher for the map interface, and
Buildercom’s FacilityInfo for maintenance information. The USD 700,000 project
was completed within 1. 5 years and the maintenance system now manages
approximately 11,500 documents for 70 users.
