Galliford Try Plc is a FTSE 250 business and one of the UK’s leading housebuilding, regeneration and construction groups. Winning the prestigious job of building the first new conservatoire in the UK for a generation was an opportunity to create a world-class modern building – requiring modern construction approaches.
Powerproject BIM was used as the platform for the 4D planning, using 3D visualisation, alongside excellent project management and as-built documentation, to help maintain excellent client communication and exemplary project control. The £57 million project for Birmingham City University will be ready to welcome students and teachers at the start of the 2017/18 academic year.
The software was used to link as-built information to the visualisation. “Powerproject BIM gives us a high-level overview of the project.” Galliford Try really saw the positives of using BIM because making a 3D video in the software is simple so it makes it a fast way to communicate information. “The visualisation you create in Powerproject BIM really benefits the client.” Read the full case study here.
