circa £4.5million

New build Sports Facility at the UWE Frenchay campus in north Bristol.

Shortlisted for Best BIM Project award at the 2019 BIM Awards, the UWE Hillside Gardens Sports Complex used BIM to ensure a fully integrated and accessible design engaging many parties within the design team.

The Scheme delivered a first-class facility for the University as well as a Building Information Model which the UWE Facilities Management team are using and which will provide a model for future developments. The BIM model will be used to review issues before attending site, track changes, perform inspections during the operation of the building, and report changes.

We were thrilled to be part of the design team for the project.

The Client says

“The award application was submitted by the client for a truly exceptional BIM project where we initially thought we were going to have a very difficult time.  We want to demonstrate that the BIM deliverables are not only possible for unfamiliar teams but how it also results in vast improvements over traditional methods on small projects.  We should celebrate the achievements of this team, their “can do” attitude proves it can be done!”
