Project Details

Challenges

We were appointed during the later part of stage 3. It was realised that the project required an EIR and the information that would be (and has been) developed required validation.

Our appointment occurred around the same time as the contractor appointment. Therefore, part of the EIR development also required negotiating with the preferred contractor to include the BIM requirements as part of the project deliverables.

A significant quantity of data was produced through multiple models (architectural, structural, MEP, catering, FF&E, sprinklers and studio design). To reduce the quantity of data we narrowed down the amount of data to a list of maintainable assets.

Solutions

We used our own bespoke data checking tools to automate the checking process and enable us to focus on just the information required.
