Added value

Briggs & Forrester implemented off-site pre-fabrication to relieve labour and ensure a high level of quality in production and provided full 3D BIM modelling on the project.

The project was delivered using the ‘Just in time’ technique which means that the team of 200 site workers had to get all materials up to the work faces on a daily basis. The Newfoundland development topped out towards the end of 2018, reaching its full height of 220 metres. Over 14,000m² of pre-cast concrete plank and 9,500 tonnes of structural steelwork have been erected for Newfoundland to reach its full height.

What we did for this project...

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.
