Innovative use of BIM is shortlisted for London Construction Award
Our innovative use of BIM technology at Battersea Power Station, the biggest construction site in Europe, has been shortlisted for a London Construction Award.
As well as being shortlisted in the Excellence in BIM/Digital Construction Award, chapmanbdsp has also been named as a finalist in the Engineering Consultant of the Year and Regeneration Project of the Year categories.
The awards, run in conjunction with the London Build Expo, recognise achievements in London’s construction industry and feature categories for solution providers, contractors, architects, civil engineers, developers and local authorities.
Developing a bespoke BIM tool for Battersea Power Station, the biggest brownfield development in Europe, has allowed us to improve efficiencies and help the client keep the project on schedule, while our work on the Lambeth Quarter project, which was completed with Cartwright Pickard, has helped revitalise an area of south London.
The scheme, which is a finalist in the Regeneration Project of the Year category has seen Lambeth Council save £4.5m a year in energy costs while cutting its carbon footprint by more than a third. The project won a RIBA London award earlier this year.
As a practice, we have completed a number of landmark projects over the last year, including the Centre Buildings Redevelopment the London School of Economics. The project, in the heart of central London, has a variety of innovative sustainable solutions and relies predominantly on natural ventilation.
We were awarded the Council for Tall Building and Urban Habitat’s MEP Engineering award for our work on the Britam Tower, which became the first building in East Africa to be certified under the Edge sustainability programme, while another of our projects, The Music School, King’s College Wimbledon, won a RIBA National award.
The winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner on November 27.
