The design and construction of every work of infrastructure is inherently a team effort. This team –
which may include planners, engineers, architects, fabricators, detailers, constructors, subcontractors,
specialty consultants, and, of course, the client – is assembled for the sole purpose of bringing a work of
infrastructure from concept into operations. This project team may be distributed throughout a building,
a city, a country, or across continents, and the project itself may last months or years, but for its duration,
the team must engage in an intensive process of information sharing and development. In the process,
ideas and designs are shared, reviewed, tested, edited, built upon, detailed, and refined continuously.
This is where Project Wise comes into play.
With its unique ability to integrate design teams that rely upon a wide range of applications in a
seamless, interoperable workflow, Project Wise provides a “single source of truth” to the project team,
ensuring each member – wherever he or she is located – can quickly access the correct, up-to-date
information needed to keep the project on track. In addition, Project Wise’s ability to facilitate the capture
and reuse of critical design information helps the team reach its ultimate goal – delivering a sustainable,
high-performing infrastructure asset, a performance that is measured in terms of operational efficiency,
constructability, safety, and use of energy and nonrenewable resources.
Within these pages you will find infrastructure projects that are inspirational on many levels: for the
distances they span, the people they connect, the air and water they clean, and the renewable energy
they produce. What they all share is that Project Wise was used as the project team collaboration and
Each of the projects shown here in The Project Wise Project Showcase has also been nominated for a
Be Inspired award for innovation in infrastructure. They demonstrate our society’s resilience in the face
of tremendous challenges, both economic and environmental, and serve as a testament to the ability of
engineers and architects, geospatial professionals, contractors, and owner-operators around the globe
to solve any problem, great or small.
