Overcoming Challenges: An Ambitious Programme
Our team were heavily involved with this project from the start. The programme allowed ten weeks for the design and full coordination of the mechanical and electrical services into the existing building using BIM. The expertise of our in-house design team in using BIM was fundamental in achieving key start dates, and the use of BIM aided early resolution of any coordination issues before the installation phase. The project went onto win an award for its collaborative design approach. The construction phase programme was also very tight, considering the installation of complex services it involved. We used off-site fabrication to reduce installation time on-site, and by doing so ensured high-quality workmanship. We also took BIM to the field, so fitters could be given a walk-through of the installation, which proved highly informative and successful for the coordination between trades.
