BIM Service Provided BIM Information Management

With BPTW appointed as BIM Information Manager, 90 New Road is a new mixed-tenure neighbourhood providing 667 apartments, 38 houses and 12 maisonettes arranged around a landscaped public realm and commercial and retail spaces.

BPTW have been acting as the BIM Information Manager on 90 New Road in Rainham, which will be delivering 717 homes alongside 1,000sqm commercial and retail space. To assist Clarion with BIM compliance, we have developed the Post Contract BIM Execution Plan which includes a Model Production Delivery Table, Task Information Delivery Plans and Collaboration Strategies to ensure the design team deliver information in accordance with the Employer’s Information Requirements. To enhance coordination and reduce potential design errors, BPTW created a clash detection strategy using Navisworks that was used to identify coordination errors in the design models prior to Clarion’s tender for the contractor at RIBA Stage 4. This, coupled with a clear meeting strategy of regular coordination workshops for the design team, provided a forum to resolve clashes ahead of time, ensuring that the tender was carried out with detailed and fully coordinated information. This resulted in enhanced and more accurate tenders returned from suppliers, providing greater cost certainty for Clarion.

We have worked with Clarion’s team to establish workflows, approval routes and naming conventions that will work with Clarion’s chosen Common Data Environment. This has assisted the design team by ensuring compliance with the naming, revisions and status by building the correct workflow into the uploading process. We have also coordinated with Clarion’s digital implementation team to understand and test improved workflows on the project for the provision of asset information at handover.

The team have also been trialling Clarion’s newly developed product book Revit Plugin which will be utilised across Phases 2 and 3.
