Technology boosts Belgium’s infrastructure
By Andy Brown20 May 2020
Following a competitive bid process, Asite’s Common Data Environment (CDE) platform has been chosen to work on a €3 billion (US$3.3 billion) project for Lantis across a series of different projects in Antwerp, Belgium, including the Oosterweel Link in Antwerp that consists of five sub-projects in the city.
The Asite platform was chosen as it met all the project requirements for the delivery, maintenance and support of a CDE for Lantis. It enabled them to efficiently manage, communicate, collaborate, share information and organise their tasks on one secure platform throughout the project lifecycle.
Over a year after implementation, the platform provides a document management system for both the project and Lantis as a whole, allowing the company to securely store and manage all information relating to their company and their various projects.
Rob Clifton, Asite SVP for the UK and Europe, said, “Lantis and Asite share a common vision; to connect people. Our work with Lantis has already seen major infrastructure developments take place in Belgium.
“The wider benefits of these crucial projects are not only vital for the environment, but are helping to improve the quality of life for the communities they serve through improving connections between different areas and surrounding cities.”
Lantis has also utilised Asite’s AppBuilder capability which has empowered the project team with the ability to build their own custom apps to streamline project development. Lantis can now replicate manual, paper-based processes within an online environment by creating forms which are tailored to their collaborative process.
As part of the project, Lantis is working on the Oosterweel link which has a number of road, viaduct, bridge, and tunnel sub-projects in Antwerp. This project will improve the accessibility to the city and the port, reduce congestion, increase traffic safety and improve the city’s links to other major cities in Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
