Buildings and Campuses

Regional Connector Transit Corridor (RCTC)
Los Angeles, California, United States

Project Playbook: AECOsim Building Designer, MicroStation, ProjectWise

As the lead architect for the Regional Connector Transit Corridor (RCTC) project, Anil Verma Associates, Inc. (AVA) assisted with the civil engineering on the design of three underground railway stations in downtown Los Angeles for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA). The USD 1.7 billion building design project is a continuation of the Long Beach – Los Angeles Blue Line Transit System, expected to be completed by 2022. The organization’s challenge was to design all three underground stations in a way that works seamlessly with the infrastructure of the surrounding neighborhoods.

AVA provided real-time visualization of the entire facility and immediate area throughout the planning and design phases of the project. The interoperability of Bentley applications enabled the project team to view composite 3D models created from MicroStation and AECOsim Building Designer. AVA used ProjectWise to facilitate collaboration among the various engineers, designers, and contractors included in the Regional Connector Constructor Joint Venture. ProjectWise served as the single project database where clash detection and visualization took place. The application’s ability to quickly track information and reference files reduced travel time and cost, saving approximately USD 6 million in labor costs over the project’s lifecycle. As a result, the project is on schedule and under budget.
