Met Office Data Centre wins CN Awards Project of the Year

In news we couldn’t have forecast, the Met Office Data Centre has won the Construction News Project of the Year (£20m to £50m) award!

The project will deliver £2bn of economic benefit to the UK over the next five years, and will dramatically improve weather forecasting around the world by more accurately predicting rainfall.

A 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
WSP – Structural Engineer
Haley Engineering – Structural Engineer
