Currently as the infrastructure sector is undergoing industrialisation, Greg emphasises that 4D construction model needs to be a part of the process.

Introducing case studies from some of the finalists of YII 2018, Greg pointed out the as reality modelling is becoming one of the major components of engineering, it is helping customers achieve more in lesser time with reduced costs.

The finalists at the conference have achieved successes using Bentley Systems' design and engineering softwares to improve project delivery. One such company is Pestech, who work in a Malaysian substation project with Bentley Substation saved an estimated US$48,169.

To improve the power supply in the Banting district of Malaysia, Tenaga Nasional Berhad plans to expand the Olak Lempit substation from a 275kV facility to a 500kV facility. Pestech International was awarded MYR79.5mn power supply installation contract to supply, erect and commission the main intake substation. Pestech used Bentley's integrated 3D BIM applications to handle project challenges including site access constraints, connecting the new substation with the existing one, coordinating contractors and working with a tight budget and schedule.

Bentley Substation provided the main application design and the Pestech team used Navigator to perform clash detection and ProjectWise for design collaboration and content management. Bentley's automated and interoperable software reduced design time by 50 per cent, thus saving costs.

Bentley's innovative solutions helps improve the substation lifecycle from design to construction to asset management.

Malaysia-based Pestech's assistant manager Sean Lee Xi Xian said, "Last year we achieved similar results in Cambodia which encouraged us to take this project up in Malaysia. We are also looking to work with the Middle East nations on compact substation projects."
