Clancy Consulting were appointed by Bouygues UK to provide Civil and Structural Engineering services on this new build Civic Centre building.
Currently at construction stage, the scheme comprises a basement and seven upper floors, with a terrace amenity space at the fifth floor and plant on two levels at roof.
The structure is a reinforced concrete, designed as a three dimensional frame using finite element analysis software and is being delivered at BIM level 2.
On Hounslow Civic Centre, Clancy Consulting were tasked to produce the Structural and Civil BIM models in accordance to the Client BIM specification that was unified into the design team environment. The BIM team were able to satisfy a high level of detail up to LOD350. Utilising the market-leading software’s Autodesk Revit, Navisworks and Trimble Tekla, the technicians produced the controlled Federated BIM models for the designated BIM design review meetings. This enabled efficient identification and address of clashes between separate Structural, Civil, Architectural, MEP, Builderswork, and Temporary Works models. The clash identification system was extended to a cloud-based collaboration arrangement (BIMCollab) which enabled live co-ordination and full integration into the modelling software. Furthermore, Clancy Consulting worked closely with our internal Civils department to produce a 3D drainage model that was always synchronised with the structural elements.
The final model was optimum and fully co-ordinated to allow the contractor to produce the specific build sequence/asset management and the O&M for the duration of the life-cycle.
