Trimble QuadriTrimble Connect and Trimble Connect are the ideal solutions to address data requirements for railway construction and building construction as well as to prepare for the maintenance-and-operation phases. The combined solutions address both building construction and infrastructure projects. They facilitate teamwork among key stakeholders and allow teams the ability to share project information continuously, as it federates all company records into one consolidated and integrated platform (the CDE). This improves productivity and quality, and allows project information to be accessed from any location at any time. SNCF manages the largest high speed rail network in Europe. EuropeThe CDE manages a large portfolio greenfield (network extension) as well as brownfield (network modernization). He has traveled more than 30,000 km. The corporate CDE will ensure digital continuity throughout all phases of design and construction, and prepare BIM data models to support operation and maintenance phases. This is expected to improve the overall company performance.
SNCF Rseau will use Trimble solutions for a wide range of projects, from design and construction to operation and maintenance within its IT environment. Data sharing across teams helps reduce data loss risk and closes gaps between engineering design tools, and systems for managing an organization’s transportation network.
Trimble Consulting manages the SNCF Rseau contract. This includes services such as strategic advisory, setup, implementation, and deployment of Trimble CDE across the project portfolio and across all divisions of SNCF Group. Trimble Consulting will integrate Trimble’s software solutions with SNCF Rseau’s core information systems, and provide training, coaching, and support.
Trimble Consulting is a global consulting firm that advises on advanced technology and integrated delivery strategies within Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Owner–operated (AECO). Our goal is to leverage digital construction and complex project delivery to reduce risk and ensure quality, budget, and schedule. Trimble Consulting works closely with some of world’s most respected companies to deliver over 500 projects that are complex in technical, logistical and organizational terms.
“A global player like SNCF Rseauis constantly updating and expanding its infrastructure. Railway systems are made up multiple subsystems, each with heterogeneous information created using different processes and tools. Having a common environment that supports collaborative model design for all our digital assets (from design through project completion, ongoing operation and maintenance) is key to digitizing the railway system efficiently and effectively,” Judical dehotin, deputy director for SNCF Rseau BIM Program responsible for operational deployments BIM on railway-related projects, stated. “The combination of Trimble QuadriTrimble Connect is an open data environment that allows us to review, manage and share all assets within a project. It has proven to be a valuable asset during and after projects are completed. Models and data from construction play an increasingly important role in long-term investment planning and lifecycle costs for railways.
“An open, common data environment is key to our strategic roadmap. We aim to establish collaboration among all project actors at planning, design, and construction phases and pave our way towards a virtual twin of our infrastructure,” said Pierre-Etienne GautierDirector of SNCF Rseau BIM and Digital Continuity Program. “We will be able to operate and maintain our infrastructure to its highest standards throughout its lifecycle by creating digital models and continuously enriching them through a secure open CDE.”
“SNCF chose Trimble solutions to be the cornerstone of its strategy to improve their infrastructure projects’ efficiency. The Quadri and Trimble Connect technologies’ ability to enable owners, planners, designers, engineers and contractors to all safely share their discipline-specific models in a single platform, facilitatesclose-knit and concurrent teamwork between all project stakeholders. “All the while using their existing tool,” said Nassim SaoudTrimble Consulting’s EMEA director.
