GroupBC has been appointed as the common data environment (BC CDE) solution provider for the west section of London’s new “super sewer”.
The west section of Thames Tideway Tunnel project is being delivered by a joint venture between Bam Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Balfour Beatty.
GroupBC said that during the first stage, existing documents had been migrated from both Balfour Beatty and Tideway systems into the BC CDE, a key component of the semantic building information modelling (BIM) platform that facilitates document management and project collaboration, with workflows configured to the project standards and processes.
“We are delighted that the Bam Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Balfour Beatty joint venture has chosen GroupBC solutions for this high-profile project,” said GroupBC chief executive Sanjeev Shah.
“The joint venture partners recognise that BC delivers highly user friendly and configurable solutions, backed by an experienced professional services team who can work tirelessly to ensure smooth and rapid implementations.”
The £416M, 6km west section of the 25km long tunnel will run from Acton in West London to Fulham in South West London, incorporating seven separate work sites along the route. Works will include design, construction, commissioning and maintenance following construction completion.
