Interserve: Why we'll never go back on BIM

Interserve: Why we'll never go back on BIM
11/01/2017

When Interserve won the contract to build the £90m Manchester Proton Beam Therapy Unit at Christie Hospital in Manchester, they knew that such a ground-breaking facility warranted the use of innovative technology and showcase our commitment to BIM at every stage of the development.

The new MPBT facility will enable hundreds of cancer patients access to a relatively new form of treatment capable of targeting hard to reach cancers without damaging surrounding healthy cells. Proton Beam therapy is talked about often but a lack of UK facilities has meant the NHS frequently has to fund treatment overseas. Alongside a new 360,000sqft hospital, near Tottenham Court Road, London, the Manchester facility will ensure far more patients are able to access Proton Beam radiography while also boosting UK research into the treatment.

Work on the five-storey building began in May 2015 and one of the first challenges to overcome was undertaking the MEP lay-out accurately, efficiently and in accordance with the UK’s Level 2 BIM mandate for publically procured projects, as enforced in April 2016. This challenge was intensified because of the stringent radiation protection requirements essential to building a safe and effective Proton Beam facility.

To Nigel McClarence, Senior Project Manager at Interserve Engineering Services - who has responsibility for the project’s MEP Installation/layout - the Trimble Robotic Total Station (RTS) seemed a sound proposition as a means to meeting the job’s unique challenges. Keen to see how the RTS could help revolutionise layout, McClarence contacted the company’s MEP Engineering Division and requested a demo.
