Mega project transitions Bentley AssetWise information to a hybrid cloud-computing platform powered by Microsoft Azure

Crossrail has transitioned its Common Data Environment (CDE) for asset information through Bentley’s AssetWise managed services to a hybrid cloud-computing platform powered by Microsoft Azure. It will provide a single location for storing, sharing, and managing information for approximately 1 million assets.

Europe’s largest construction project, Crossrail has been designed in a virtual environment for 3D, 4D, and 5D BIM, powered by Bentley’s modelling software. Bentley’s asset information management solution, AssetWise, based on Bentley’s eB technology, manages the engineering and asset information in the project and is designed to provide a complete, federated view of “digital railway” information.

Crossrail will run over 100km from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through new tunnels under London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. It will bring an additional 1.5 million people within 45 minutes commuting distance of London’s key business districts. The Transport for London (TfL) run railway will be named the Elizabeth line when services through central London open in December 2018.
