SNCF Réseau selected Trimble to deliver an integrated software solution to serve as as the central system within its Enterprise Common Data Environment (CDE) for Building Information Modeling (BIM) models for the next three years.
The integration of the Quadri BIM collaboration software and Trimble Connect collaboration software will enable planners, designers, construction teams and project owners to share information and streamline data workflows. Trimble Quadri and Trimble Connect solutions are suitable to address the data requirements of railway construction and building construction and to prepare for the maintenance and operation phases.
The combined solutions address building construction and infrastructure projects and are designed to facilitate teamwork between key stakeholders and allow teams to share project information continuously as it federates all company data into one consolidated and integrated system (the CDE). This increases productivity and quality and facilitates project information access from anywhere and at any time. The corporate CDE will provide digital continuity across all design and construction phases and prepare BIM data models for operation and maintenance phases and is expected to enhance the overall company performance.
Under the new three-year contract, SNCF Réseau will be using the Trimble solutions in a broad range of use cases covering the entire project lifecycle, from design and construction to operations and maintenance, within its IT environment. Sharing project data across teams helps reduce the risk of data loss and closes the gap between engineering design tools and systems for managing the company’s transport networks.
The SNCF Réseau contract is managed by Trimble Consulting, covering services from a strategic advisory function to setup, implementation and deployment of the Trimble CDE solution across the project’s portfolio and across the divisions of the SNCF Group. As part of the agreement, Trimble Consulting will be responsible for the integrated software solution with SNCF Réseau’s core information systems and provide training, coaching and support.
