InfraWorks Helps COWI AS Complete a Feasibility Study for a Fitness Park in Just 26 Hours
COWI AS recently used InfraWorks 360 on a project for the City of Oslo: a new, 2,300-square-meter outdoor fitness park in the city’s Bogerud neighborhood.
The City plans to build an environmentally sustainable park that will appeal to the neighborhood’s multi-generational and multi-cultural residents, providing a pleasant, open-air setting for public activity. Oslo planners want the park to be integrated with and complement the natural landscape, positioning planting beds and permeable surfaces so water runoff feeds the surrounding grass areas. Instead of just ordering equipment and plans from a manufacturer, the City hired COWI to conduct a feasibility study and provide preliminary costs for the park.
Marius Sekse, a landscape architect and BIM strategist at COWI AS used InfraWorks 360 software to create a 3D model of the proposed park in the context of the existing terrain and surrounding environment. From that model, he calculated earthworks and generated illustrations and panoramic photographs of the site and the proposed park for the client.
In less than a week, Sekse was able to deliver the project—including cost estimates, earthwork calculations, and high-quality project visualizations.
