BIM delivery for new Primary School.

In Gowerton, near Swansea, Opus is designing a new £5m Primary School.

Opus is providing the civil, structural and geotechnical engineering to Interserve Construction Limited for the City and Council of Swansea. Opus produced a 3D model alongside the architect (Stride Treglown) and M&E engineers (McCann and Partners) which covered external topography, as well as the foul and storm water drainage, to produce a full level 2 BIM delivery.

This has allowed the design team to fully co-ordinate their designs, provide information for the contractors to robustly price the project and to avoid issues arising during construction. Design challenges included an underground culvert beneath the building, which had to be bridged, as well as shallow mine workings which will be treated.
