High Speed Rail and BIM

This article explores the potential use of BIM on high-speed rail (HSR) projects, in the wake of the formal launch of California’s planned High Speed Rail initiative, and explores whether we can expect the use of BIM to significantly lower the cost of new HSR projects than those implemented in the pre-BIM era. It looks at the current status of HSR projects around the globe, at the software available for rail design and construction in general, and finally, at the implementation of BIM in more recent HSR projects.
