Pune: To achieve the target of running 12 km of metro service in Pune city by December 2019, MahaMetro has pulled up their socks and has set a war room to monitor round the clock progress of the metro project. Officials of MahaMetro said that the war room with six huge monitor screens will continuously display the project progress. The war room was inaugurated by MahaMetro Managing Director Brijesh Dixit, on Monday. 

Mahametro officials said that they are using 5D BIM (five dimension building information modelling) technology which will help them monitor their progress on different parameters round the clock. The use of technology will also help bring in operational efficiency while handling the Rs 11,420 crore metro project. Following the use of different models of the technology, officials of MahaMetro said that they have completed more than 30 per cent of the project work. The MahaMetro has decided to complete work of a few stations on priority by end of the year. Dixit said that the Pimpri-Dapodi stretch and Vanaaz-Garware stretch is on priority zone of MahaMetro.

Speaking about the 5D BIM technology, metro officials said that the technology will help evaluate the project on time as-well-as cost factor. 

“The 5D BIM is an intelligent model-based process that provides an insight to help you plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure systematically. It is an important tool for solving the design and construction coordination based on project progress and project cost. The war room is essential to track the progress of the project,” said a MahaMetro official. Another official said that the next ten months will be challenging for the entire team.
