The current design process requires additional time and resources to develop specifications, process flow diagrams, and engineering line diagrams through to general arrangements. The process generates a number of Technical Queries (TQs) and Requests for Information (RFIs), requiring additional time and resource. It can take up to three further months for a design to go through the assurance process; including the conceptual design phase, developing the preliminary process and mechanical designs.

The aim of this innovation project is to develop and trial an intelligent 3D modelling process based on Building Information Modelling (BIM) level 2 maturity, within an existing construction project.

Attain knowledge of the BIM model in a working environment to understand if the intelligent 3D modelling process is fit for purpose within future National Grid construction projects.
