Video: 4D computer modelling helps Balfour Beatty Vinci JV on complex M5 job

Watch Balfour Beatty Vinci JV digital project delivery co-ordinator Josh Hanson discuss the use of 4D modelling on the M5 smart motorway project.

The joint venture utilised 4D modelling to gain a better understanding of the works sequence prior to starting on site, reduce waste and inefficiencies, avoid operational and logistics clashes and mitigate health and safety risk.

Using this innovative software, the JV and Highways England re-opened a stretch of the M5 three-and-a-half hours earlier than planned during a scheduled 12-hour closure, removing planned disruption for over 26,000 of road users on their morning commute.
