Company : Yüksel Proje Project : Istanbul Metropolitan Area Metro and Tram Lines Country : Turkey 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 Istanbul metro and tram lines and stations all over the World (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 has successfully 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 specialized tasks,” continued Levent Yilmaztürk.
The benefit of integrated electrical calculations.
Some of the most complex and time-consuming tasks in electrical projects often involve advanced calculations that are required to ensure the functionality of large-scale systems. This part of the project work is also often dependent on specialized software solutions.
“Before using MagiCAD, we were trying to generate codes for calculations via Dynamo or import specific data from Excel into simulation programs. This was very time-consuming and produced a lot of extra work for us,” Levent Yilmaztürk explained.
“We can now analyze the calculations that have been made with MagiCAD in a single move in Revit. We can also include detailed calculation results of a short circuit, voltage drop, and current-carrying provided by Schneider’s EcoStruxure Power Design engine accessible directly in the interface.'' Levent Yilmaztürk explained.
We have used EcoStruxure Power Design before, but the integration with MagiCAD has made combining calculations to projects much more efficient,” continued Levent Yilmaztürk. Improving existing design methods
We’re working with the Revit platform which offers a unique multi-disciplined solution that aids collaboration. MagiCAD Electrical has complemented the existing design tools in the Revit environment and the intelligent features and automatic workflows have helped Yüksel Proje reach measurable time-savings.
“Our biggest saviors in electrical design for the metro system have been the cable drawing and panel connection features, real-time collision analysis, automatic reports, and integration with other programs. Overall, MagiCAD completes the missing functionalities for electrical systems in Revit,” said Levent Yilmaztürk. “When we looked at the work program within the scope of the metro project, we estimated that we had gained a 35% advantage in design time by using MagiCAD,” concluded Levent Yilmaztürk.

Yüksel Proje is the largest engineering company in Turkey with over 40 years of experience in transportation, infrastructure, building, and geotechnical projects both in Turkey and globally. As evidence of its global activity, the Istanbul-based company generates 30% of its annual turnover from abroad and the total number of employees at Yüksel Proje has recently exceeded 1400.
MagiCAD Electrical offers a comprehensive BIM solution for the design and calculation of electrical, lighting, telecommunication, and data systems.

Healthcare industry is facing a number of new challenges: resiliency, hyper-efficiency, sustainability, people-centric strategy, etc. These are at the core of Schneider Electric’s focus and essential to the digital transformation of our industry. To support you throughout this journey, we are bringing together resources and information to help you make the most of the IoT revolution taking place in healthcare facility building and operations.
Using the EcoStruxure solutions and the expertise of Comfort Laboratory, a Master level EcoXpert, Grand Medica Hospital in Russia have successfully implemented a state-of-the-art solution for climate control, security management, and energy efficiency. In just of few months with EcoStruxure, Grand Medica have already achieved tangible results:
Reduced electrical operational costs by 20%
Reduced thermal energy consumption by nearly a third
An optimized electrical distribution system for future upgrades
$176,000 in CapEx savings due to product compatibility
Comfort Laboratory, our EcoXpert partner led by CEO Aleksander Sutyagin, have been instrumental in this impressive performance. From the early stages of their partnership with Schneider Electric, Comfort Laboratory have made intensive use of Schneider Electric Exchange to drive their business.
First, they leveraged the power of our communities and dedicated forums to get support and build their solutions. Then they amplified their business reach by using the marketplace to promote and sell their solutions to other system integrators.
Watch this short video from CEO Aleksander Sutyagin and discover how Schneider Electric Exchange helped Comfort Laboratory successfully transform into an international business with new customers well beyond their traditional markets.
"We were only visible in Russia, so we decided to promote and sell our Smart Connectors worldwide using the Schneider Electric Exchange platform."
