WRIGHTINGTON, WIGAN & LEIGH NHS FOUNDATION TRUST
Recognising the importance of this scheme from our client’s perspective, and aware of Government drivers we challenged our efficiencies. Use of BIM and the P21+ Repeatable Rooms, for the wards, helped us to complete the project ahead of schedule.
Completion was achieved under budget and handover was six weeks earlier than scheduled, there was greater predictability through clash resolutions, a reduction in CAPEX / OPEX and additional value to the customer through COBie asset data delivery to aid O&M activities. Our MEP supply chain partner, NG Bailey, was recognised with the BIM Initiative of the Year and the Project of the Year awards at the 2017 H&V News Awards in London for its BIM capabilities on this project.
