Stuttgart, Germany, 05 March 2021. RIB Software SE, the world’s leading provider of iTWO 5D BIM Big Data technology for the construction industry, today announced the conclusion of a Phase-II-contract with the joint venture of JOHANN BUNTE and STRABAG.
JOHANN BUNTE and STRABAG are starting 2021 in Germany with a major contract: the expansion of the A 1 freeway in Lower Saxony over a distance of 29.5 km. The construction began on Feb. 1st, 2021 – completion is scheduled for the middle of 2025. In addition to extensive earthworks and construction of the roadways, 14 bridges along the highway and two overpasses over the highway will also have to be rebuilt. A further 18 bridge structures will be rehabilitated. The joint venture is also providing noise abatement services and carrying out accompanying landscape management measures.
Rainer Kolthoff, commercial manager at JOHANN BUNTE: “The joint venture of JOHANN BUNTE and STRABAG will completely document the whole construction cycle of the joint A1 freeway project with iTWO. In addition, the portal function of the RIB platform enables a more optimal collaboration between the joint venture and its subcontractors. We are looking forward to implementing this major infrastructure project even more effectively with the help of iTWO technology.”
Gerald Malits, function lead of BIM integration / technical ERP STRABAG BRVZ: “STRABAG has successfully relied on the innovative iTWO technology for the planning and calculation of its projects for several years. The decision was therefore an obvious one to also work together with RIB on two other large construction sites. On the one hand, we will use the iTWO enterprise solution to plan and implement our construction measures for the “HS2″ rail project – the UK’s new high-speed rail network. On the other hand, we will benefit immensely from the iTWO technology and RIB’s experience in the expansion of the A1 freeway”.
Erik von Stebut, managing director of RIB in Germany: “This contract represents another important milestone for RIB and for the digitalization of the construction industry. We are intensifying our cooperation with two of the most important construction companies in Europe. Moreover, in addition to successful projects with the DB German Rail, the German Highway Authority and the major A3 freeway, our software is also being used in another major infrastructure project. The iTWO platform, which is hosted in the Microsoft Azure Cloud, plays out its strengths in complex environments such as large construction sites and in the context of construction joint ventures. The flexibility and integration capabilities of our software enable consistent and uniform processes from the beginning to the end of the project.”
