Projects and Products

PROJECT COLLABORATION for one of the world's largest construction schemes - the extension of the New York subway - is to be provided by Causeway Technologies.

Causeway Collaboration (CC), a collaboration tool developed from consultant Arup's Integration software, has been awarded the contract to provide collaborative applications during the preliminary engineering phase of the project to extend New York's subway system beneath Manhattan's 2nd Avenue.

The job, which will involve the construction of eight new stations, will take 10 to 12 years and cost up to £20bn.

Design is by a DMJM+HarrisArup joint venture.

'This is a real validation of our solution, ' says Causeway Technologies vice president Graham Cunningham-Walker.

'CC is already being used on the M6 Toll road, one of the UK's largest infrastructure projects. Now, it to be used on potentially the largest capital project so far.'

Causeway has also revealed details of an expansion to its electronic trading initiative, Causeway Tradex, to include key heavy building material suppliers.

Tradex is an online platform for the exchange of invoices and other trading documents, and now boasts suppliers delivering more than £8bn of construction related materials a year.

Six major UK contractors are currently signed up to the service - Alfred McApline, Amec, Carillion, McNicholas, Mowlem and Taylor Woodrow.
