True innovation

THE A453

This road runs from Nottingham to the M1 and was notorious for

being one of the most congested roads around. By using our

manufacturing capability, we were able to reduce the cost of

structures by 10%, reduce onsite labour by 30%, achieve 20%

efficiency savings, and free up a key route for thousands of people!

HOUSING SOLUTION

We are changing the face of residential construction in the

UK through our Design for Manufacture and Assembly

(DfMA) capability.

CLARGES AND MEGAPLANKS

Clarges is a 'super prime' residential development overlooking

Green Park and Buckingham Palace. We've utilised some key

innovations on this project, including the pioneering use of

E6 megaplanks, providing greater safety, time, quality and

cost benefits.

ENERGY INTO ALDER HEY

Alder Hey in the Park, in Liverpool, is one of the most sustainable

hospitals ever built, with more than 50% of its energy generated

on site. It's also the quickest we've ever built. By deploying our

manufacturing capability as well as utilising digital engineering

right from the initial design phase, this project was delivered in a

record 130 weeks.

IMPOSSIBLE SPACES AT THE CRICK

By using digital engineering and rehearsing every major plant

installation in the digital model, we were able to design, assemble

and deliver 4,660 MEP modules to exacting tolerances - some of up

to 25 tonnes - and then install them within 'impossible' spaces at

the Institute.

BIM AT BOND STREET

Digital engineering is the technology that helps us to visualise a

project way before we start to do any physical work. For the

escalator works at Bond Street, we superimposed a 3D model of the

new escalator over the existing model to identify potential clashes

and resolve clearance issues in advance.
