Asda Mosborough, located in Sheffield, gained planning approval on 23rd July 2012 and was constructed on a brownfield site. The store, constructed on stilts with parking below at grade level, provides circa 45,000sqft of sales area which is accessed by travelators from ground level.
Notable additions to this store were the inclusion of a full photo voltaic roof, cladding treatment in respect of colours and use of timber as well as brise Soleil solar shading to areas of curtain wall glazing.
Project BIM Model
As a further development from previous projects, the way of working was enhanced to aid the scheme in respect to value engineering, full co-ordination of all elements, clash detection and virtual build of the scheme. This further assisted the production of costing information and communicating to stakeholders for sign off, all leading to a build once with minimal errors when the project hit site.
The elements of the project produced in 3d data included architectural, structural, civils, M&E, sprinklers, steel fabrication, refrigeration – all working in a single co-ordinated model.
Working with our client Mace, post tender success, our initial role as lead consultant required a completed detail design to be developed from the employers requirements specification and planning drawings. The aim to provide our client a final contract price to be agreed with the end user prior to a start on site.
This required a fully collaborative way of working between all parties involved to produce a best value and best programme approach to the scheme, to ensure every element was reviewed and questioned regarding the requirements and approach to its construction.
A total of £1.5m saving was generated on the scheme allowing works to proceed on site.
We continued to develop construction drawings for all elements of the build, monitoring works on site and attending both design team meetings and client meetings.
A continued update of the BIM data continued throughout the build with a handover of data at completion.
