Shell inks global framework agreement with Bentley Systems
The agreement aims to enhance Shell’s capital project construction execution with the deployment of 4D/5D construction management systems manged by Bentley.
Shell has announced that it has formed a global framework agreement with Bentley Systems in an effort to enhance its capital project construction execution.
The solution, based on Betley's ProjectWise ConstructSim, comprises of automated 4D/5D construction management systems deployed as part of Shell's ProjectVantage programme. The package helps to streamline engineering, construction and installations, and adheres to Construction Industry Institute's (CII's) Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) methodology.
Greg Bentley, Bentley Systems CEO and executive sponsor of the company's Shell relationship, said: "By championing AWP through ProjectVantage for its own projects, Shell is also helping their EPCs toward project delivery performance breakthroughs-leveraging software technologies and cloud services, for the benefit of every project."
He added: "Shell's experience to date in applying 4D and 5D initiatives on major projects corroborates both CII's findings about productivity gains attainable through AWP, as well as ProjectWise ConstructSim's contribution."
ProjectWise ConstructSim serves an advance work toolset that provides project delivery teams with increased visibility over active projects. End-users can generate a variety of work packages, interact with data-intensive 3D models, and plan tasks based on resource availability.
Martin Swaine, Shell 4D/5D programme manager, said, "Shell has been pleased with the trend of benefits seen during our projects' increasing use of ProjectWise ConstructSim. Together with Bentley, we look to build on these improvements with our supply chain to collectively deliver safer and better projects."
