The rapid timescale combined with the need to co-ordinate over a dozen design disciplines made smooth collaboration a key requirement of the project.
A common data environment enabled 15 US-based
Mott MacDonald offices as well as the owner, contractors, and project partners to collaborate effectively. This was supplemented with regular BIM co-ordination sessions to keep stakeholders in constant communication and share best practice. Real-time updates to model data improved efficiency and quality of the final design, while the elimination of design changes during construction, thanks to the ability to identify conflicts and optimise the model, was a major advantage.
