Briggs & Forrester
Most buildings do not provide both teaching and workshop facilities, or have the capability to move a full working train in and out of the building. The National College for High Speed Rail in Doncaster was designed utilising Autodesk Revit to comply with Willmott Dixons requirements for a full Level 2 BIM project.
Our client Willmott Dixon submitted the NCHSR project to the Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire and Humber Awards 2017 which incorporated the Briggs & Forrester MEP model and won the Digital Construction category. The project also won the Best Educational Building & Winner of Winners categories at the Building Excellence Awards 2018 South Yorkshire & Humber, LABC, Regional Winner at the Building Excellence Awards 2018 and Headline Sponsor Winner at the H&V News Awards 2018.
We have a fully integrated design and build capability across the group, including 3D coordination and Building Information Modelling. By developing the design and being fully involved in the early stages of a project, we can provide timely design solutions and verification.
The group provides a range of specialist skills encompassing engineering, design, installation, and maintenance. The combined experience, knowledge and expertise of all five divisions enables the group to develop and implement fully-integrated solutions for some of the most complex and demanding mechanical, electrical and public health engineering installations.
We guarantee a smooth handover transition with the project team remaining the main point of contact, the development of commissioning and training plan and regular visits from our team in the months after practical completion.
Our Building Services Maintenance team provides a complete range of technical facilities and maintenance services including building maintenance, design and build projects, air-conditioning and building energy management systems offering a national service across regional offices.
