Works

Works champions the digital delivery of projects.  It provides support to our teams in the use of appropriate and innovative software and hardware to deliver sustainable architecture with a measurable, positive impact on human well-being and the environment.

This underpins our data-centric approach to projects where systems for knowledge-based insights inform the design, delivery and lifetime of our buildings.

Process & Delivery

We incorporate cutting-edge technologies in all our work to achieve sustainable architecture with a measurable positive impact on human well-being and the environment.

We have developed a data-centric approach to design, using digital monitoring, VR and AI technology, and creating digital twins, to inform our architecture at different levels and scales.

Our Works team ensures that all our teams are trained to use the most appropriate data-driven software and technologies to deliver every project.

The Works team has also been conducting research to develop our understanding of how buildings can impact human wellness and health with the use of data centric approaches.

 

 

BIM

We use BIM – aligned with the relevant standards e.g. ISO 19650 – across the Practice to ensure seamless collaboration, communication and control between all partners involved in the planning, design, delivery and management of a building. BIM also provides the flexibility to integrate, interrogate and improve a design as required throughout the different stages of a project.

As Architects we can provide data rich models that can be used by the rest of the design team. As Lead Designers we also offer services to co-ordinate project teams and their models. We have also helped clients to develop BIM protocols and execution plans, working with them to identify key asset information to minimise their costs.

We participate in a number of BIM working groups to ensure we keep up to date with the latest technologies and industry standards.

Virtual Reality

We have embraced the use of virtual and augmented reality as additional tools to bring our models and projects to life allowing clients a deeper, emotional understanding of a building.

Using a mobile VR/AR set up we create virtual spaces that clients can experience before they are built.  This gives stakeholders the ability to analyse the scale and flow of their buildings early in the design process, helping to influence decisions and give confidence when signing off a design through the various RIBA work stages.

We also offer 3D visualisations. Every visualisation is mapped with the greatest precision and attention to detail, creating photo-realistic architectural visualisations of a building’s interiors and exteriors that allow our clients to market the development before the project is complete.
