    Project Summary


    Highly Commended for Integration and Collaborative Working and Winner for the Value Category - Constructing Excellence North East Awards 2020

    Integral to the successful delivery of this project was the BIM component and its ongoing use as both a coordination tool as well as true Level 2 information embedded within the model.

    The 7,270m2 3 floor development  accommodates more than 2,200 people within split usage auditoria and lecture theatres across three floors.

    The centre also includes an exhibition space and a cafe for more informal working, with three storeys of learning facilities above including office accommodation for the University’s Business School.

    Utilising the latest software available we assisted the Contractor with identifying builderswork requirements utilising the BIM model and with our expertise  expedited the procurement of particular trades ensuring the strict programme deadlines were met.
