Paris, 27 June 2016 - For its Metro Line 4 modernisation project, the RATP has chosen Finalcad for its performance and flexibility.
The RATP is the only organisation in the world with knowledge of metro line management operated on a mixed circuit basis (with automated and non-automated tracks). The modernisation of Metro Line 4 necessitates particularly stringent requirements, associated with the need to remain accessible to travellers throughout the construction works and requiring full operability without any major disruption.
In order to respond to the technicality and complexity of the modernisation of Metro Line 4, the RATP has chosen to digitise its construction management process with Finalcad in order to improve the integration of the project stakeholders, and to create a digital archive of site records for years to come.
Finalcad’s involvement in the Line 4 modernisation project includes the creation of quality control sheets, progress records, issue logs and rail track planning.
“Finalcad has built its reputation firstly within the construction world, but is also used on infrastructure and public works projects with equal advantages, if not more. Finalcad’s experience on complex projects has shown itself to be particularly relevant for such a landmark and technical project as Metro Line 4” said Joffroy Louchart, Finalcad’s Co-founder and VP Business Development.
“The objective of using Finalcad is two-fold : firstly, to improve productivity, through its ability to facilitate defect management, virtually in real-time, whilst the site is fully operational : and on the other hand to create a digital site archive with continuous feedback” said Pierre-Emmanuel Quemener, Infrastructure Design Team Leader, for the RATP Line 4 Automation and Extension Projects.
With around 700,000 daily passengers, Line 4 is the busiest non-automated line of the Parisian network. Established in 1908, today Line 4 includes 27 stations extending over 12.1 km.
Finalcad provides mobile apps and predictive analytics that help construction stakeholders anticipate and fix issues found during the building’s journey. Our mission: increase quality, reduce its cost and make it accessible to all. Since 2011, Finalcad has helped more than 8,000 projects in 30 countries, and keeps on advancing the digital transition of the construction industry. For more information, visit www.finalcad.com.
