Geospatial World – a prominent media platform with diverse activities – has conferred `Excellence Award for Metro Project’ on Maha Metro Nagpur. The award was presented at the hands of Union Minister of State for Road Transport & Highways and Civil Aviation Gen (Retd) VK Singh at the GeoSmart India conference held at Hotel Holiday Inn, Aerocity, New Delhi, yesterday (5th September 2022).
Maha-Metro was chosen unanimously by the Jury of Geo Smart Infrastructure 2022, which had Additional Secretary, Ministry of road Transport and Highways Amit Ghosh as its chairman.
The prestigious award is part of Geosmart Infrastructure Awards and aims to celebrate technology’s best-in-class application and leadership in transport, infrastructure development and asset management. Organizations, projects and individuals are felicitated for their impeccable work in the field of digital construction and engineering. Individual and organizations who have made great contribution in these fields are conferred with awards.
Nagpur Metro was shortlisted for the award for its role as it stands as a differentiator in the Indian construction sector with the implementation of geospatial and 5D BIM technology to enhance efficiency and productivity. In addition to cost savings, the 5D digital project management platform has played a decisive role in timely completion of the Metro Project, the Organization has said.
Metro was also credited for working on issues like traffic congestion and road accidents in city and provide citizens with an easy and affordable daily commute. Maha Metro is the first organization in the country to implement the 5D BIM Project visualization. For the uninitiated, 5D-BIM is a digital project management concept that integrates many soft wares seamlessly and employs a five dimensional Building Information Modeling to accurately predict outcomes and timelines.
This unique system has enabled Maha-Metro to very tightly control quality, cost and time. It may be recalled that Union Minister Nitin Gadkari had presented citations for `Longest Viaduct with Highway Flyover and Metro rail Supported on Single Column Pier’ & `Maximum Metro Stations Constructed on Double Decker Viaduct’ for Asia Book of Records and India Book of Records.
On behalf of Maha Metro Nagpur, the award was received by Director (RSS&O) Sunil Mathur.
