ISG will build Asda’s first Level 2 BIM project, after securing a £10m new build project in Clacton-on-sea.
The contractor was appointed to Asda’s global BIM steering group in 2014 and has been awarded the job following trial BIM projects at the company’s new stores at Barry, south Wales and Leeds.
The 35,000 sq ft store will be a steel-frame building with a café, in-store bakery and automated petrol filling station.
It has been designed with all consultants working on software system Autodesk Revit, resulting in the production of seven fully annotated 3D models.
Materials can be quantified in real time and 4D programming will connect the 3D models to the build programme to visually show week-by-week progress.
ISG is also acting as Asda’s information manager, collating information and coordinating clash detection with consultants.
ISG’s western regional managing director Rob Martin said: “The project represents the culmination of a journey by Asda into advanced collaborative working practices, where ISG has played a key role as a trusted project partner and influencer.”
