Infotech + HDR

Our work with HDR is expanding the use of BIM throughout project delivery of civil infrastructure projects by focusing on open data standards to support the asset lifecycle.

Expanding our BIM for Infrastructure Strategy

Infotech and HDR are working together to expand Infotech’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) offerings and its impact on digital delivery and advancing open data standards. As experts in the use of BIM and digital project delivery for transportation infrastructure, HDR will consult Infotech on the company’s strategic BIM for Infrastructure (BIMFi) plan.

HDR is a full-service engineering, architecture, environmental and construction services firm specializing in both horizontal and vertical infrastructure. As a leader in the application and integration of digital delivery methods, HDR specializes in engineering design, construction management, and data acquisition services. In addition, the firm offers advisory services for enterprise digital workflows to support lifecycle data strategies for managing transportation infrastructure. HDR is currently working with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), buildingSMART International (bSI), American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and American Roadway Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) to research, promote and advance digital delivery initiatives in the U.S. transportation industry.

“There are tremendous opportunities in this industry to leverage digital data to inform decisions during the design, construction, operations and maintenance phases. We are strong advocates for open data standards to more efficiently connect the different business areas, which will make it easier to collaborate and provide digital information that can be used to improve the project delivery process from start to finish. Our collaboration with Infotech will help advance these processes.”
