Based on the lessons learned from the Joint E6-Dovrebanen Project and others, we strongly believe that this way of carrying out the InterCity project lead to substantial gains. Model based design leads to less interdisciplinary conflicts in the design phase. Consequently also significantly fewer mistakes and rework on the construction site. The 3D model will be reused and utilized in all phases, also by the contractors. The goal is that the efficiency will lead to substantial savings and better quality in all areas.
