Bentley’s Synchro software solution for FC Barcelona Stadium

July 19, 2018
4D construction modeling provides immersive construction management

Bentley Systems presented Synchro, a 4D construction-modeling solution at the Microsoft Inspire conference.

Synchro will be used for FC Barcelona’s major renovation to the Espai Barça sports arena in Barcelona, Spain, which will accommodate more than 100,000 fans. In conjunction with time-lapse monitoring footage of the construction site provided by EarthCam, Bentley’s Synchro will help the stadium-project team to visualize and compare construction progress with the 4D construction model.

Synchro 4D construction-simulation software will help the project team visualize construction progress of major renovations to FC Barcelona’s Espai Barça sports arena.

Greg Demchak, technical architect for Bentley, said, “The scope of this project demands that we look for new solutions, and for this, we turned to Microsoft. Using Azure infrastructure, HoloLens technology, and Cognitive Services, multiple users can interact with a holographic representation of the stadium data at any moment in the construction process. We are also leveraging machine learning and on-site images to digitally track actual progress with Synchro.”
