Bechtel Ltd–OGC London IS&T
ProjectWise in the Cloud
London, United Kingdom
As a global engineering, construction, and project management corporation,
Bechtel faces challenges associated with the broadening geographic
distribution of projects and employees; increasing numbers of non-Bechtel
entities –contractors, partners, competitors, suppliers, and customers –
participating on integrated project teams; and growing concerns about security,
confidentiality, and data integrity.
Bechtel is using cloud technology to deploy Project Wise for project
collaboration. Bechtel’s Project Services Network is accessed directly from
the Internet via a portal. Bentley’s Professional Services helped design the
new Project Wise architecture, write XenApp Farm add-ons, and review
documentation to ensure a standard build-out would work for the global roll-out. Project team members were based in London, Singapore, and Ashburn, Va.

Comperj Petrochemical Plant
Rio de Janeiro’s Petrochemical Complex (Comperj) will be constructed on a
45-million-square-meter area located in Itaborai, Brazil, with investments
of $8.38 billion. When operations begin in 2012, Comperj will process about
150,000 barrels per day of heavy oil. The project partners implemented
Project Wise to connect team members in distant locations.
Project Wise was integrated with Microsoft SharePoint and used in conjunction
with Aveva’s plant design management system (PDMS) to improve team
performance, facilitate collaboration by enabling efficient file exchange,
and expedite the design approval process. The total time on the project was
reduced by 15 percent as a result of deploying the technology.
