It’s with great pleasure that we can announce that the Met Office Data Centre has won the Construction News Project of the Year (£20m to £50m) award.
The project will not only deliver £2bn of economic benefit to the UK over the next five years, but will dramatically improve weather forecasting here and around the world by more accurately predicting rainfall.
A hugely technically challenging project, involving a cantilevered structure leaning at 60 degrees, we were appointed to take the project from RIBA Stage 3 to completion, as well as leading a full BIM Level 2 programme.
Complying with the latest suite of BS and PAS 1192 standards, the BIM programme involved a tailored project plan that was both suited to the client needs and efficient for the main contractor, Willmott Dixon.
The award judges judges commented:
“The delivery of this unique building – despite significant changes in scope – makes it an exemplar project for the merits of BIM and digital design”
Congratulations to the whole project team:
Stride Treglown – Project Architect, BIM Lead, Landscape Architect, Planning Consultant
Willmott Dixon – Contractor
Arup – M&E
NG Bailey – M&E
