Comprehensive Coordination Of All Engineering Systems
Aurelia’s 270,000ft2 embraces agile working and an intelligent building system to drive efficiencies and set new standards for wellness and sustainability. The project – which creates a rich mix of work settings and amenities – also centralizes the business’s client spaces, welcoming them into the campus and introducing new ways of working alongside Aurelia’s team.
The interior strategy defines neighborhoods, routes, and layers of privacy throughout the spaces, as one would when planning a city. People’s first impression of this ‘masterplan’ starts at reception, where a light-filled, double-height space with warm timber-clad surfaces sets the scene for the whole building.
The ground and first floors include a range of work and amenities spaces for both staff and visitors, whilst the more formal client spaces are on levels 13 and 14.
Other floors contain a mix of work settings for the Deloitte team, including a range of 10 work settings – including individual booths, team tables, and open collaborative spaces – that allow employees to select the right space for the task in hand. This idea of choice extends to the social and more informal spaces, with levels seven and 12 providing a place to relax and work informally. These spaces – linked by a series of new staircases – include the main food court, large presentation areas, a tea bar, a coffee shop, and social spaces. There is also an external terrace, where staff can go for fresh air and take in views of the city.
The configuration of the building supports the project’s truly ambitious sustainability target that places health and wellbeing on a par with environmental performance.
We received Stage 3 project information and drawings from MEP contractors and our tasks were:
- optimization of design solutions to suit the latest architecture
- coordination of all MEP systems with architectural and structural models
- standardization engineering components for quick installation
- first-class Stage 5 construction drawings
- fill the model with COBie database according to BEP
- technical support
What we did:
We used the whole arsenal of modern software to achieve the highest design results.
- Revit for modeling engineering systems
- BIM360 platform for quick turnaround of information
- Navisworks for detailed coordination
- BIMCollab for clash monitoring
- Aconex for document control
- Dynamo plugins allowed us to decrease modeling and drawing development time which saves client’s money
- Visual 3D analysis in Revizto helped us to check the egonomics of all systems and feel the installation process.
- Karno Energy team developed the BIM models and associated BIM asset data which allowed facilitate the construction process and save construction time.
