Mott MacDonald has launched Moata Intelligent Content, a fully managed digital component library, which hosts standardised digital assets and parametric building information management content. The library allows clients and delivery teams to rapidly construct models earlier in design lifecycle and eliminate hours spent recreating content, by centralising the organisation, management, and access to thousands of components, standard assemblies and manufacturer products.
Moata Intelligent Content library curators structure content to suit each client’s needs, integrating standardised metadata to significantly reduce component search, load and place time. Its custom analytics and reporting tools give insight into component usage across projects and programmes, that can influence strategic decision-making around asset and equipment standardisation, procurement and simplified operations and maintenance.
The structured library also acts as a digital kit of parts for organisations looking to explore opportunities for offsite construction and design for manufacture and assembly, enabling teams to quickly test multiple component configurations and optimise solutions for manufacturing, assembly, transportation and installation.
A dedicated component development team generate intelligent content, with embedded datasets and parametric capabilities, that match the level of information needed for each stage of a project lifecycle. Data-ready components enable easy linkage or extraction of lifecycle cost, carbon and programme information from design models, that can be rapidly reviewed and optimised for different design solutions.
The Moata Intelligent Content ethos of “create once, reuse many times” has been proven to deliver substantial savings. On a pilot project with Mott MacDonald Bentley, £50,000 in savings were delivered by simply enabling component reuse across projects, programmes and frameworks.
Andy Barnes, Mott MacDonald’s product lead said: “Moata Intelligent Content can help drive time and cost efficiencies for teams and clients by providing the right content in the right place at the right time. Our solution is an example of Mott MacDonald’s innovation strategy in action, connecting domain experience and digital expertise to supercharge delivery for the infrastructure industry.”
Harry Parnell, head of digital project delivery at Balfour Beatty said: “We have collaborated with Mott MacDonald our strategic design consultancy partnership partner to develop a production method and procedure around content management. This has helped us receive designs to the right level of information needed, with the right coding and attribution for our estimation and planning activities. Making us more lean and efficient for delivering solutions to our clients."
