Interserve and Jaguar Land Rover exploit the benefits of BIM

Interserve, BIM

BIM (building information modelling) played a key role as part of the consultation and co-ordination process between Interserve and Jaguar Land Rover for its new engine manufacturing centre near Wolverhampton. At almost 100 000 m2, the facility will include an engine-testing centre, manufacturing and assembly halls.

Completion is expected in 2014, with the first engines coming off the production line in 2015.

Interserve has completed the steel-frame structure and cladding for the plant, where Jaguar Land Rover is investing over £500 million.

Interserve gained Jaguar Land Rover’s input early in the design stage to avoid long lead-in times and facilitate a fast-track approach for package approach of structural steel, cladding and building services. This procurement approach is helping to keep works within schedule on what is a very fast-moving build.

As part of the contract, Interserve is to deliver a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating for the site. Features of the project include the use of photo-voltaics, solar collectors and grey-water recycling.
