Skanska win Digital Construction Award at the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards 2018
The sought-after Digital Construction Award in the London and South East region was presented to Skanska on the 28th June at the annual awards dinner at The Royal Lancaster, London, where construction industry professionals waited in anticipation to learn the results following a thorough and robust judging process in all 16 categories.
Skanska are responsible for building and managing/maintaining multiple infrastructure assets for local authorities, transport infrastructure operators, utilities companies and facilities such as hospitals and schools. These physical assets are often widely geographically distributed across a city/region and may be under, on or above ground level. Many assets are currently managed within ‘closed systems’ and based around asset type where data may be available but is not effectively utilised.
A project consortium led by Skanska with BRE, SMEs 3DRepo, Unit9, The Carto Group and asset owners (including Hampshire County Council and Great Ormond Street Hospital) utilised their in-house resources to deliver VISUALISE. This is a fully integrated system to support effective and efficient management and future construction of physical infrastructure assets.
“In this category, we look for examples of how the adoption of collaborative digital processes has dramatically improved the planning, design, fabrication, construction and operation of built facilities or infrastructure,” explains Graeme Forbes, CEO, Clearbox; head judge and sponsor of the Digital Construction Award. “This project addresses an industry-wide problem of connecting and integrating information from multiple sources. VISUALISE facilitates better intelligence and leads to significant cost savings for infrastructure asset management”.
The Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards are unique in their recognition of some of the best teams and organisations in the region and aim to inspire others to learn and benefit from their stories which are published in the Awards Brochure. “The key actions they took, results achieved, and lessons learned make an interesting read” says Derek Rees, Regional Director for Constructing Excellence.
