    It is a giant infrastructure project to lead the traffic past the city center of Stockholm.

    By using BIM, the data flow gets better and the error gets fewer, says Karin Anderson who is BIM specialist in the project. We get a better coordination and communication between the technical areas and the contractors. BIM leads to lower costs.
    The traffic situation in the Stockholm region is severely strained. That’s why the E4 Stockholm Bypass is built to lead the traffic west of the capital and reduce the strain in the city center.
    The idea is to facilitate the flow both for private and public traffic. This giant investment is described as “one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Stockholm of all time” and is now highly ongoing. The initial study was made back in 2001 and opening is planned to 2026.
    The information is the thing that keeps this huge project together.
    – Our goal is to replace drawings with models, tells Karin Anderson who is BIM specialist in the Stockholm Bypass project.
