In 2016, the University commenced its campus development programme to invest £530M over the next decade. The signature element of this programme is the creation of a smart campus which supports the University’s long-term plans to ensure it remains a leading academic institution. The smart campus will cohesively knit together the existing heritage building stock on the estate alongside the integration of new facilities to create a learning environment fit for the 21st century.
Mott MacDonald’s Smart Infrastructure team were appointed in the strategic advisory role of ‘Critical Friend’. We created a digital masterplan to inform the strategic context, developed a roadmap that defines future activity and the steps required to implement the smart campus. A business case has been made to support the procurement of a strategic technology partner. Ultimately the project will lay the foundation for the creation of a digital twin of the University.
The Smart Campus Board – part of the World Changing Glasgow Transformation team – has identified the direct the opportunity to sustain the future success of the University through the power of digital transformation. By going digital, innovative new features and capabilities will help leverage maximum value from the University’s physical investment in its estate, helping to create high value campus services which attract and retain students.
The theme BIM for Good resonates strongly to the Prosperity Fund BIM Programme, which aims to reduce poverty in middle income countries via the use of BIM as a methodology for the efficient delivery of infrastructure.
The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) and Mott MacDonald are working with six partner countries to develop their National BIM Adoption Plans, under the Global Infrastructure Programme which is led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as part of the UK Cross Governmental Prosperity Fund.
This session which will be co-presented by representatives of CDBB and Mott MacDonald, will provide an overview of the 2019 interactions with stakeholders our partner countries, explaining the exciting progress made and key themes arising.
Key take-aways for the audience will be the link between BIM and high-level impacts such as poverty reduction. The global adoption of BIM Standards such as ISO 19650 will be discussed with examples of how differing countries are approaching this.
The importance of designing with the best tools to match the objectives of the creative leaps designer want to explore is an ever-increasing topic within the industry. Disruption of how we work and how the technology is changing the way we think about design solutions is allowing a shift in skill sets and is allowing an emergence of digital design workflows. Within this session we will look at the context of recent trends in the Architecture industry and why this is important to embrace. There will be a series of stages that designers work through at early design stages for delivering the project proposal. However, part two will focus on three design tasks that are relevant to all designers for application within their core business. From site acquisitions to distribution of spaces to optimisations of the building footprints and the building products used to constitute a design proposal. By using the Autodesk AEC Collection and tools such as FormIt Pro, Insight 360, Dynamo, Infraworks and Revit.

There is a lot of uncertainty and confusion in how to apply, and conform to, the BS EN ISO 19650 series. Nonetheless, a requirement to comply with these standards is already being included in contracts; often in a vague way – simply asking parties to “achieve” or “comply with” BS EN ISO 19650. There is a tension and lack of understanding between the technical/commercial side of the construction industry and the legal community as they wrestle with this new internal BIM standards. This is resulting in unnecessary misunderstandings, disputes and additional risks or liability. May Winfield has had significant involvement in the published and upcoming legal guidance and standard contractual documents for the BS EN ISO 19650 series. In this practical session, May provides guidance, tips and insight into preparing documentation that conforms to the BS EN ISO 19650 series, reducing and mitigating risks in BS EN ISO19650-compliant processes, and avoiding disputes in this brave new BS EN ISO 19650 series world.
Story – how we are working with a client adopting BIM from scratch, and delivering the biggest property programme in the UK. The programme is ambitious in terms of scale, time, security, stakeholders and logistics. We have worked as a partnership with HMRC to challenge and stretch each other’s ambition.
Our role, to deliver the BIM strategy, upskill the client and help set a digital vision. Across the programme we delivered programme & information management, BIM management, Built Asset Security consultancy, project and cost management as a service – supported with enterprise analytics and visual reporting through BIM. Costing through BIM across all projects with an aligned data structure.
The programme, which is to be delivered in accordance with the BIM Level 2 mandate will transform HMRC as an organisation. Whilst providing short term ROI during the project the digital approach to real estate delivery will leave the legacy of an Asset Information Model network – a digital estate representing the 13 large, intelligent Regional Centres, 4 Specialists Sites and a London Headquarters equipped with the digital infrastructure and training facilities needed to support the client.
HMRC had never undertaken a project in this way
No public sector organisation to date has undertaken a programme of this scale in this way
There are significant interfacing parties who do not fall under the BIM Level 2 mandate
The scale of information generated is enormous
