Large quantities of information from numerous providers using different software systems had to be brought together, while an ambitious delivery schedule meant updates had to be comprehensive and available to others in real time.

To overcome these challenges we created Apollo – a high capacity cloud-based platform to enable collaboration and provide a means of sharing design and project information. Apollo makes high-quality geographical information available to over 500 users without the need for extensive training or additional software.

Edits to information are shared across the system in real time, simplifying information transfer and ensuring all users work with the most up-to-date information. Apollo has since been used on a number of schemes including Crossrail 2, seven Highways England projects, Thameslink, Network Rail Anglia Level Crossing Reduction Strategy, Cumbria County Council Infrastructure Recovery Programme, National Grid North Wales Connection (Wylfa to Pentir) and Thames Water’s Counters Creek project.

Altogether, our innovative platform has provided a collaborative platform for more than 2500 users from over 80 organisations, with many of those previously adverse to BIM or CAD saying they found Apollo user-friendly and rewarding to use.

The efficiency of the system has helped to reduce time and costs throughout all stages of the projects.
