ISG is set to deliver Asda’s first Level 2 BIM (Building Information Modelling) project after securing a £10 million development contract in Clacton-on-Sea that will boost economic growth.
BIM methodology has its foundation in project collaboration, efficient working practices and the instant accessibility of highly-detailed building services data for asset planning.
The contractor was appointed to Asda’s influential global BIM steering group in 2014 and following trial BIM projects at the company’s new Barry store in South Wales and the Beeston store in Leeds – Asda has now awarded its first full Level 2 project to ISG.
The 35,000 sq ft Clacton store is being constructed on the site of a former multi-occupancy retail development in the popular Essex town.
Rob Martin, ISG’s Western regional managing director, said: “The Clacton-on-Sea project represents the culmination of a journey by Asda into advanced collaborative working practices, where ISG has played a key role as a trusted project partner and influencer.
“In a sector where operational costs and asset management are critical, BIM not only creates efficiency benefits during the build phase but also throughout the service life of the store and we are thrilled to be working with Asda on such a milestone project.”
