A new 175,000ft² logistics facilities for the British Aerospace Engineering supply chain delivered with a data-rich asset model.

In collaboration with BAE's BIM and facilities teams, we used this project to test and push the boundaries of how technology can help deliver and maintain buildings. Developing employer information requirements [EIR], BIM execution plans [BEP] pre and post contract, the project followed a BIM level 2 route and set the benchmark for future BAE projects. Collaboration technologies were exploited to share data rich models from concept to completion and into the management phase.

DLC was a game changer. BAE were keen to explore BIM and together we collaborated to discuss all possibilities, test what worked for the project and dismiss what didn't. The goal was to deliver maximum efficiencies using BIM through the build and asset management phases. No workflow or process was left untested.
