Download Brochure

The world is going through a rapid phase in Infrastructure growth and Metro rail has become the backbone of the Mass Transit System in any city. This has to be well Planned, Designed, Constructed, Managed and Maintained in a systematic and futuristic way which is the biggest challenge today. The major challenges a Metro Rail project faces are mostly in the areas of Routing, Designing, Utility mapping , Aligning, Project Planning (Construction and cost),Sustainability, Execution, Maintenance and Management.


Sutech a Computer Aided Engineering Company presents its unique and innovative technology to revolutionize the entire process of Construction and Engineering for Infrastructure projects - Infrastructure Modeling and Management (IMM) is an answer for a well Planned, innovatively Designed, perfectly Constructed, efficiently Managed and Maintained Infrastructure project. This technology integrates all data associated with Planning , Designing & Construction into a single comprehensive 3D file which includes all underground, ground and above ground data.


This is further integrated to project planning & simulation software for better project management. Finally integrated to Infrastructure Management System & Intelligent Information System to help manage the project better and make accurate decisions. This can be used for Disaster Management Systems & Emergency Response System.


In short IMM is an integration of Site Modeling (Digital terrain Model) + Route Modeling (Piers, Viaduct, Tunnels etc.) + Site development modeling + Underground Services Modeling + Geographical Information Systems (Land Acquisitions )+ Global Positioning System + Building Information Modeling(BIM) (Stations) + Project Planning + Construction Management + Simulation + Supply chain Management + Asset / Facilities Management + Maintenance Management + Space Management + BMS Integration + Disaster Management + Emergency Response System + Automation & Remote control hence generating a  total intelligent 3D comprehensive model with smart accessibility on PC, Laptop, ipad, Tabs, Smart-phones etc.

Planning: Planning includes route mapping with land acquisition details on exact GPS coordinates and Geographical Information system(GIS). The land is perfectly recreated using DTM (Digital Terrain Modeling) which enables exact 3D mapping of all details with 3D model of Buildings, Utilities & Road details along the alignment route.

Designing: Sutech provides its services in creating optimized and error free design, by exactly 3D modeling all structures and integrating with all its services (signaling  system, power system, drainage system, air ventilation system, emergency response system, fire and security system) into a single 3D file using Building Information Modeling (BIM) and checking for all errors and clashes at design stage itself thus saving nearly 45% on design cycle time.

Construction: These 3D models created by Sutech becomes very useful in error free construction saving a whopping 20% on construction cost compared to the present way of construction. Reduces the need of  interdepartmental site meetings caused due to confusions and clashes by 50%. Above all you get an exact quantification and estimation for all your construction work which is very useful in tendering process.

Manage : Sutech's 3D model is very useful in planning & managing you projects in a more efficient and effective way. This model seamlessly integrates with the project planning & management software like MS Projects or Primavera to provide you with a 3D simulation of your project planning so that every member of the construction team would understand the Construction planning and sequencing better for a perfectly planned construction.

Maintain : This whole 3D model can be Synchronized into an Intelligent Infrastructure Management System so that you could efficiently maintain the entire project throughout its lifecycle. The Intelligent Information System would provide you with all information required of each member like its supplier, name & make, maintenance chart, details etc. at just a click of a button.

Ultimately IMM is a future ready 3D platform to Visualize, Analyze, Simulate,Execute, Manage and Maintain your project more efficient & effective way.
