Birkenhead Office Development
As Information Manager for Morgan Sindall Construction at two Grade A office buildings in Birkenhead town centre, BIMBox collaborated across the project team to strengthen the digital construction procedures and support the evolving digital asset’s progression, enabling the provision of invaluable data that has enhanced decision-making and created tangible benefits.
Totalling 150,000 sq ft, a clear digital construction strategy, developed in collaboration with Morgan Sindall Construction, aided the delivery of the two BREEAM Excellent-rated office buildings at every step.
BIMBox delivered reviews of the evolving digital models at defined milestones informed collaborative improvements and connectivity adjustments between disciplines. Throughout the project, this quickly and clearly communicated any potential issues before they could occur on-site.
With the structural steel frame benefitting from development within the Tekla software platform, BIMBox developed a bespoke workflow to improve interoperability with disciplines using Autodesk software. This ensured an effective export process from IFC, an open format, was in use to produce Revit and Navisworks readable files, readily available for frequent coordination across the wider project team.
Streamlining Digital Delivery
Guided by an Asset Information Delivery Plan (AIDP), data requirements were clearly defined and delivered in a structured and manageable way. BIMBox undertook Quality Assurance Reporting (QAR) – which included routine reviews of the main models’ geometry and data – alongside clash detection verification activities, to support the team in remaining on course with best practice digital development.
These digital verification and validation activities provided confidence to the key stakeholders throughout the progression of the project, with technical support sessions with the supply chain rapidly delivered by BIMBox when opportunities to improve the digital construction strategy were identified, in light of project complexities.
Overall, the information management strategy supported an open approach across the team and has ensured the delivery of two new office buildings for Morgan Sindall Construction, on behalf of Wirral Growth Company were proactively designed and delivered with constructive digital strategies adopted at every step.
