Willmott Dixon Interiors picked up ‘Best overall BIM project’ at RICS' BIM4SME awards for how they deployed the technology during the fit-out of DfH’s new Victoria Street HQ.
Interiors impressed judge Alan Muse, RICS Global Director of Built Environment Standard, who said:
"An advantage of applying BIM on this project was the production of virtual reality and animations, which supported the client in gaining a better understanding of the project, and ensured that fundamental items to help create a highly productive working environment weren’t missed. The client was then able to make any amendments to areas and elements of the design to better suit their needs."
The awards recognised those at the forefront of delivering
successful BIM (Building Information Modelling) projects and initiatives, while
promoting best practice and the importance of SMEs to the adoption of BIM.
Interior’s work on 39 Victoria Street — a Category B fit-out of an 11-storey building — saw its use BIM to design and deliver an attractive, yet highly cost effective and sustainable building for the Department of Health, comprising modern offices, meeting rooms and restaurant, at a cost of just under £11.5 million.
Interiors MD Graham Shaw:
“We are lucky to have some of our best fit-out specialists working for us and I’m delighted to see that borne out by winning the supreme BIM award. Our customers want to know they have the best working on their projects and this is one way to underline that they get that when appointing Interiors.“
