A whole-system solution for high-rise structures.

It’s been five years since the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy of June, 2017, which killed 71 people and displaced many more.

In response to this the government passed the Building Safety Bill in late April 2022. It affects every building above 18 metres in height (though these criteria are expected to quickly expand in the future) and looks set to be one of biggest shockwaves sent through the construction industry for years. The consequences of non-compliance are real – fire safety certificates will be withheld for non-compliant buildings, making them unusable, and seriously affecting their value.

Among the requirements of this legislation is the need for a “golden thread” of information that owners are responsible for creating  – and importantly, maintaining Essentially, every building that the legislation is applicable to needs to be mapped out for the benefit of contractors, owners, emergency services, and more. The question for many developers, building owners, and other stakeholders, will be how on earth do I do that?

In this white paper, we show you how a combination of BIM, reality capture, and intelligent mesh modelling software can be used to create accurate digital replica of existing buildings. Once you know how, it’s a very simply yet highly effective method for creating your golden thread of information for your buildings – especially older buildings where original plans have been lost or alterations have been made. 

Following this workflow will help stakeholders achieve time, cost and file-size efficiencies, maximising their return on investment, and most importantly could save lives.

Key learnings from this white paper:

  • The importance of capturing and continuing to regularly update a 3D detailed view of all building structures.
  • How BIM can provide a complete and cost-effective solution for building creation and maintenance.
  • Optimal BIM methodology
  • How a ‘digital-twin’ can aid the development of pre-determined attendance plans for rescue services.
  • How BIM can enable all to view and collaborate on the ‘golden thread’ of information across the construction and renovation industry
