Initiating a change in the water sector

Yorkshire Water serves 1.7M households through an estate of 695 water and wastewater treatment works, 133 reservoirs and 28,700ha of upland catchment area.

The organisation recognises the importance of information management in providing a good service to its customers, and is now considering adopting the principles and framework of BIM level 2 as specified in BS 1192 to better create, manage, and maintain asset information.

We are helping the client articulate and implement its vision for information management. Our collaborative approach involved engaging a wide range of stakeholders in the client’s organisation to understand how their roles depend on asset information and the opportunities that they could realise if the management of information were improved. This work informed recommendations for the development of their new asset management system and will also be used to shape their long-term asset information strategy.

Additionally, our digital component catalogue provides a library of high-quality elements that allows our delivery teams serving Yorkshire Water to hit the ground running in creating its virtual assets, resulting in major project efficiencies. And our Carbon Portal platform – the world’s first BIM-enabled carbon calculator and optioneering tool – is helping our client to drive down the carbon footprint of new developments and expansion work. Our approach was acknowledged at Bentley’s ‘Be Inspired’ Awards, where we scooped the prize for Innovation in Project Delivery.

Our guidance is setting Yorkshire Water well on the road to managing its information systems in accordance with BS 1192. The efficiencies will be seen in a streamlined service through better asset management, helping Yorkshire Water serve its growing client base long into the future.
