Company: Yüksel Proje
Project: Istanbul Metropolitan Area Metro and Tram Lines
Start and Completion: 2018 – 2021
MagiCAD software: MagiCAD Electrical for Revit
Yüksel Proje, the largest engineering company in Turkey was founded in 1978 and has done both design and consultation work on metro and tram lines and stations in Istanbul, as well as globally (India, Algeria, Romania, Turkey and more), since 1992, covering over 334 km of lines and 213 stations over the years. They are currently involved in the mechanical, structural, architectural and electrical design for the Istanbul Metropolitan Area section of the rail transit system network that has been defined in the recently published Integrated Urban Transportation Plan of Istanbul. This extensive project includes approximately 60 km of rail transit system lines and related metro stations and storage facilities.
Levent YILMAZTURK is a Deputy Manager of the Electromechanical Group at Yüksel Proje. He shared with us how MagiCAD Electrical for Revit has helped them cope with the demands of such a considerable undertaking and elaborated on the features that have proven to be most useful from the perspective of electrical design.
Improved workflow with a single solution
Yüksel Proje have succesfully used MagiCAD in transportation projects, as well as in large-scale infrastructure and superstructure projects, including industrial plants, airports and road tunnels. Before MagiCAD the company had to often resort to multiple different software applications for different tasks, but MagiCAD adoption has helped them to streamline their workflow.
“Previously, we were constantly using many different applications to help with drawing and calculations. Thanks to MagiCAD, we are now able to access all the necessary features in the same software with a user-friendly interface,” says Levent Yilmaztürk.
“Information exchange between design software is an aspect of electrical design that can be challenging. The software applications used may be incompatible or may not fully support the same formats. The easy import and export features in MagiCAD for Revit make it much easier to switch between software for specialised tasks,” continued Levent Yilmaztürk.
