Units 3009 & 3011 Lake Drive Development, Citywest

BIM models were developed for this project with BIM software solutions used to analyse the structural and civil engineering models. The works comprise of 2 No. Office Buildings (3009 and 3011) circa 4,850m2 each and associated site works at Lake Drive on the Citywest Business Campus. The proposed curved buildings are sited around the existing campus water feature known as the Tara Pool which is located in the centre of the Lake Drive office development.

Tekla Structural Designer and TEDDS structural analysis software were used to analyse the RC frame superstructure consisting of RC flat construction supported on RC foundations, columns, walls and cores frame. A 3D BIM model of the structure was developed using Revit software. Separate Revit models of each of the buildings were created to aid with file size with an additional site model file created to link the two buildings together.

To ensure consistency in the project information and utilise the software and BIM processes to their ability, T. J. O’Connor & Associates ensured that all drawing deliverables were extracted from the Revit model.

Windes MicroDrainage computer modelling software, based on the Wallingford Procedure, was used to analyse the foul and surface water outfall rates and aid in designing Sustainable Urban Drainage systems.

AutoCAD Civils 3D software used to model the existing ground surface profiles. This model was used to determine accurate formation levels for the car park and building based on the information obtained from the Site Investigations and to determine cut and fill volumes for each site.

The BIM software was used to analyse and design the building and services to accommodate the inclusion of a future feature glazed link between the buildings.
