Underground construction in urban areas
The North-South metro line is recently constructed in Amsterdam. This new metro line runs underneath the densely populated historic city centre of Amsterdam. The total length of the new metro line is nearly 10 kilometres, 7 kilometres of which is being constructed underground.
The project includes the construction of three underground metro stations: Rokin, De Pijp and Vijzelgracht. All three of these stations were modelled using BIM. The models were used to simulate the construction process and were expanded to 4D-BIM to include construction planning and document management.
Witteveen+Bos has been involved in the project as lead consultant and main responsible entity in the North-South line consultancy joint venture since 1994. Our services include project design, consultancy services, project management, process management and site management. Other tasks and services include leading tendering procedures, risk management, project and construction supervision.
