Steel-framed BIM store for Asda

Posted on by in News

nAsda1607Steelwork is nearing completion on Asda’s first Level 2 BIM (Building Information Modelling) project in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex.

Working on behalf of main contractor ISG, Walter Watson is erecting the steelwork for the 3,200m² supermarket that is being constructed on the site of a former multi-occupancy retail development.

The steel-framed building will include a customer café, deli counter, an in-store bakery and staff areas with shower and changing facilities. The site also includes an automated petrol filling station and a large car park with four electric vehicle charge points.

The build programme has been fully designed in BIM with all consultants working in collaboration software system Autodesk Revit, resulting in the production of seven fully-annotated 3D models.

ISG’s Western Regional Managing Director Rob Martin commented: “The Clacton-on-Sea 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.

“In a sector where operational costs and asset management are critical, BIM not only creates efficiency benefits during the build phase but also throughout the service life of the store and we are thrilled to be working with Asda on such a milestone project.”
