The project team for the $850 million expansion of Boston's South Station is using several modeling tools for its planning and design to reduce major construction conflicts. The team is using 3D Studio Max to help visualize the design; Legion to model how passengers exit the area; Bentley RailTrack to design infrastructure; and other modern software and simulation tools. "The team will develop several modeling scenarios to test the various construction phases and different infrastructure elements that are proposed," said Kristine Wickham, deputy project manager for Vanesse Hagen Brustlin, part of a project team that includes HNTB and Arcadis, among others.
