Drilling a tunnel under the Chesapeake Bay using a machine the length of a football field? It’s just another day on the job for AU speaker Jon Servedio. As a senior specialist in BIM at Mott MacDonald, he’s part of the team planning the $756 million Parallel Thimble Shoal Tunnel Project, which involves adding a new 2-lane tunnel to an existing passage—without disrupting traffic. Construction is due to begin later this year.
Jon spoke at AU 2017 about his experience with the project and shared his insights on how to put together a BIM execution plan for an infrastructure project of this size and scope.
While in Vegas, he also had a chance to sit down with the team at Redshift. Check out Mott MacDonald Has Tunnel Vision for the Chesapeake Bay Thimble Shoal Project to learn how he used his BIM model to plan construction; profile soil and sediment; manage traffic at each stage of the project; and provide visualizations for civic, public, and industry stakeholders.
Don’t forget to visit AU online for Jon’s 2017 class—BIM Plan to Execute: Adding Tunnel/Road Capacity to Existing Thimble Shoal Tunnel. It includes a meaty handout and presentation deck, too. Trust us, it’s deep.
