1 Case Study One

2 BushburyHill Sustainability First Passivhaus Primary School in UK: Low energy building design (less than 120 kwh/m2/annum) Natural materials, sustainably sourced 90% waste diverted from landfill Water-saving sanitary fittings Warmcellrecycled paper insulation produced from newspapers collected by the pupils Legacy furniture and ICT donated to the charity Biodiversity plan put in action

3 BIM allows the client to visualise the end product clearly BushburyHill BIM

4 BushburyHill -BIM The Building Information Model: Communicates the client s requirements more clearly Design intent It is a visual tool

5 BushburyHill -BIM The model contains parametric information Amendments made in one view will automatically be translate throughout the model

6 Schedules and Schedules of Accommodation can be generated within the BIM environment BushburyHill -BIM

7 BushburyHill BIM Complex geometry and buildabilityissues become much more apparent Model usedto informconstruction methodology and detail design resolution

8 BushburyHill BIM and Sustainability Themodelcanbeusedtofeeddirectlyinto: Structural analysis Environmental analysis tools Energy and comfort analysis tools Daylighting and lighting analysis

9 Bushbury Hill BIM and Sustainability The Building Information Modelling was used to: Inform the building s thermal properties and building envelope Ensure the building is not compromised in terms of sustainability issues Ensure the required energy and comfort targets are achieved

10 Case Study Two

11 Bow School Case studies

12 Bow School The Proposal Case studies Federated nine form entry secondary school, incorporating a 5FE boys and 4FE girls school under the direction of a single head teacher Includes post-16 (sixth form) forming part of a consortium with other schools in the area The scheme consists of three separate buildings all connected together via an external covered walkway

13 Bow School Sustainability 60% reduction in CO2 emissions A and A+ rated Materials Specification More than 300m2 of photovoltaic panels Gas-fired Combined Heat and Power Plant Wildlife Pond and Wildflower Meadow

14 The consultants have produced fully co-ordinated BIMs, comprising separate: Architectural BIM Structural BIM M&E (Mechanical and Electrical) BIM Bow School BIM

15 Bow School BIM Models used to explore: Design Coordination Clash Detection/Clash Resolution Animations for Client Presentations 4D Phasing and Programming 5D Cost Estimations

16 Bow School Benefits of BIM Designing within the BIM environment allows for greater transparency Clash detection/clash resolution undertaken in specialist software Visual interrogation undertaken initially Detailed Interrogation involving the production of clash detection reports are produced thereafter Reduced waste

17 Bow School Facilitating Sustainable Design BIM tools used to facilitate sustainable design within the Bow School scheme are as follows: Structural Analysis Energy Analysis Day lighting and Lighting Analysis Tools for Construction Management and Waste Reduction Database Tools for Facility Management

18 Bow School BIM The models will be further developed throughout construction providing asbuilt information from the contractors. The model will ultimately serve as a tool for the client after construction, in operational mode for asset and facilities management.

20 Case Study Three

21 WillowfieldSchool SITE LOCATION - Existing Clifton Road Site - New Blackhorse Road/Hawarden Road Site The proposal is to construct a new school building and external environment for a 900 pupil secondary school.

22 WillowfieldSchool The current WillowfieldSchool is located 500m North East of the proposed site and is to be relocated and expand from a 4FE to a 6FE school.

23 WillowfieldSchool BIM The consultants have produced fully coordinated BIM s, comprising of separate: Architectural BIM Structural BIM M&E (Mechanical and Electrical) BIM

24 WillowfieldSchool BIM and Sustainability Energy and environmental analysis have been undertaken The model was prepared from early stage architectural CAD drawings, typical window elevation, accommodation schedules

25 WillowfieldSchool BIM and Sustainability Overheating analyses were completed to test where natural ventilation could be utilised to meet BB101 criteria.

26 WillowfieldSchool BIM and Sustainability Used to inform the environmental aspects of the scheme.

27 WillowfieldSchool BIM and Sustainability Used to issue BRUKL and EPC reports to give early feedback on meeting Part L 2010 and London Plan improvement.

28 WillowfieldSchool BIM and Sustainability Used to check the energy consumption figures for heating, cooling, auxiliary power, lighting, hot water match the notional figures as a minimum.
