With management oversight of more than 120,000 documents and 750
municipal buildings, a priority for the municipality of Grenoble, France, is to
optimize the management of municipal real estate. The goal of this project
was to federate and exploit heterogeneous data from an Oracle real estate
database, GIS, CAD software (DGN and DWG), and Bentley Map. The challenge
was to offer a user-friendly solution without redundancy.
MicroStation, Project Wise, and Bentley Map provided a complete integration
of the city’s information system, which also acts as an experimental laboratory
for implementing Project Wise and Bentley Map in other cities. The system
integrates a design team distributed over multiple locations, facilitates
rapid deployment of a project team, and accelerates information sharing and
communications across project teams.

Cougar Dam and Reservoir Adult Fish Collection Facility
Blue River, Oregon, United States
Located on the South Fork of the McKenzie River near Blue River, Ore., the
Cougar Adult Fish Collection Facility will assist in a collecting, sorting, and
transporting program to connect fish populations located upstream and
downstream of Cougar Dam. The USD 14. 7 million facility includes a fish ladder,
pre-sort pool, sorting facility, and two pump structures for water supply.
MicroStation, Project Wise, and STAAD enabled a shared model approach that
allowed for structural, mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, civil, and geotechnical
engineers to effectively integrate the design. Challenges were addressed by
fostering collaboration among the design team members to maximize product
reviews and ensure effective communication.
