Ziggurat utilizes Bentley Systems on MTA project with Jacobs Engineering

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is North America's largest transportation network, serving a population of 15.1 million people in the 5,000-square-mile area fanning out from New York City through Long Island, southeastern New York State, and Connecticut.

Ziggurat was retained by Jacobs Engineering to provide BIM support services on the new ventilation plant to be built at the West Village's Mulry Square. The exterior of the plant, to be constructed at the intersection of Greenwich Avenue and Seventh Avenue South, is designed to blend in with the surrounding historic district-protected neighborhood, complete with a brick facade and windows.

Ziggurat team was tasked with converting the subcontractors’ 2D shop drawings to 3D model using Bentley Systems, the choice platform for all MTA work. Once the 2D drawings were converted to 3D models our team performed clash detection, 3D visualization and model analyses utilizing Bentley’s Projectwise platform.
