The Challenge

High levels of collaboration were required to coordinate designs and effectively model concept designs.

Our Solution

The project utilised BIM processes from early design stages to efficiently model alternative design solutions and building positions on a complex former industrial site. The chosen solution has been developed in accordance with a BIM Level 2 process with Curtins being responsible for modelling Civil and Structural elements using a combination of Revit and Civils 3D. The BIM process has been key to delivering a solution that satisfies the brief whilst reducing overall area and hence cost and build programme.
