A clear focus on information engineering
Through Information Engineering, Infranea – the infrastructure division of VK architects+engineers – aims to respond to client demand to map and manage the information of large, complex infrastructure works. The result: great added value for the client in terms of traceability, efficiency, longevity and failure costs for the entire life cycle of the infrastructure. “For our clients, we create and manage the information processes for infrastructure works, from start to finish,” said Bruno De Saegher, general manager of Infranea.
With more than 70 years of experience in healthcare, industry, buildings & infrastructure, VK architects+engineers gained a solid portion of digital expertise in 2019 with the acquisition of Infranea, the leading player in digitalization processes for the infrastructure sector. In a rapidly changing world, data and information are increasingly important. This is no different in the infrastructure sector. Many changes occur during the long lead time of projects. Through Information Engineering, Infranea maps these changes from beginning to end. This leads to a wealth of information upon project delivery.
Traceability, reduction of failure costs, Robustness and efficiency
The overall implementation of an infrastructure project can take 15 years or even longer. Traceability of changes is crucial. In addition, information engineering helps to reduce failure costs. It makes the design process and information processing shorter and more efficient. In short, robustness, traceability, a reduction in failure costs, an increase in efficiency, are the four benefits of information engineering.
