PMA Consultants, an international project management consulting firm, received the Visual Planning Award for the company’s $1 billion Bayonne Bridge project. The award from Synchro recognizes the innovative use of their software for highly complex projects. PMA received the award at the Second Annual Synchro User Conference held Saturday and Sunday, January 26 and 27, 2013, in New Orleans.
The Bayonne Bridge is the fourth longest steel arch bridge in the world and connects Bayonne, New Jersey to Staten Island, New York. Construction will raise the bridge from 151 to 215 feet, allowing large ships to clear the bridge; the bridge will remain open during construction.
PMA is responsible for risk analysis, project controls, and 4D-BIM model development. PMA created the 3D-model development, elucidating construction staging sequence to the modeling team, and integrating 3D-model components with the schedule using Synchro for their client, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
