• NCDOT Use of Projectwise

    For every new project created for NCDOT's SharePoint Preconstruction site, a Work area for the site will be created in ProjectWise of the same name and description. ProjectWise is the only authorized area to store and maintain CADD files. ProjectStore (NCDOT) will no longer be a repository for project files. 

     Access to ProjectWise will be set up according to the pre-construction project site's access. Existing projects residing in ProjectStore will be moved to ProjectWise at the Project Manager's request. See also the Policy directive on NCDOT's use of ProjectWise  from Chief Engineer Tim Little. For questions/problems/or guidance with transitioning existing projects, email dot.pwsupport@ncdot.gov


  • ProjectWise Update (08.2022)

    Continuing enhancements      

    NCDOTs' transition from ProjectStore to ProjectWise is complete, requiring all new projects to be managed and maintained in NCDOTs' ProjectWise Production Data source.    CADD services have been hard at work behind the scenes ensuring ProjectWise's performance provides users with access to projects and assists in real-time collaboration with NCDOTs' PEFs. 

    New enhancements to the NCDOT ProjectWise system include

    • Automatic creation of a project in ProjectWise when Preconstruction site request and processed.
    • Automatic publishing of PDF renditions to SharePoint on request.
    • Division and PEF Access when a project is created.
    • Projects requested from ProjectStore to ProjectWise are now done through an automated process

    Other enhancements currently being worked on include

    • ProjectWise Drive
    • ProjectWise 365
    • ProjectWise Connected Projects

    NCDOT and is migrating to ProjectWise for the Preconstruction Projects      

    PEFs can now access their projects in ProjectWise for real-time collaboration between them and NCDOT. Authorization to access NCDOTs' ProjectWise Data source requires external users to register and authenticate their credentials through Bentley's Connection Client.

    CONNECTION CLIENT Registration

    Once registered, access NCDOT data source, which is cloud-hosted by Bentley, will be available under the Data source Listing when logging in for the first time. The appropriate NCDOT project management groups will manage projects.

    Migration of Older Projects.

    Current projects on Project Store will remain unless they are approved by the Project Manager and the ProjectWise Support Group. If you have any issues or need assistance, please email - dot.pwsupport@ncdot.gov.

    PEF Members Access to Projects in ProjectWise.

    For each firm to gain access, the project manager will submit form PEF PROJECTWISE ACCESS REQUEST.pdf to the PEF's ProjectWise Administrator if known and forward to dot.pwsupport@ncdot.gov.
