the solution

'Out of the norm'

From the ground up, we modelled this niche site, included over 22 different types of specialist ventilation systems supplied in ductwork in sizes up to 2300mm in diameter. 24 different types of water system are being supplied in pipes up to 600mm and over 80 specialised, process, chemical and gas systems were coordinated by us as the design progressed.

Conclusion

A collaborative approach

The Cadan Design team worked with the Buro Happold designers from multiple global locations, using cloud technology to help bring together this project. As coordination lead, we assisted with design coordination across the entire site including the production of over 800 design drawings for each issue.
