AC Plc have always looked for the cutting edge of design and development technology to aide and assist the completion and quality of our projects, regardless of their size. As an early adopter of BIM (Building Information Management) in design and construction, AC have carried this experience into our design remit on our international data centre portfolio. Our in-house specialist design department can add value to your project from concept through to occupation, with our multi-faceted team providing:
VALUE FOR MONEY
AC’s adoption of BIM systems allows all possible solutions to be fully modelled, analysed and compared at an early stage and long before we step onto a construction site. This helps customers consider short term construction costs alongside longer term operational expenditure, maximising value over the lifetime of an asset.
Using the 4D capabilities of BIM, our project planners can sequence construction works on screen. This helps identify and eliminate any potential safety issues caused by different work packages on-site. It also allows us to develop the shortest and safest approach to construction.
Directly applying the information garnered from our modelling software, AC can manufacture various envelope and support systems off-site at fabrication and weld facilities. This reduces time spent working at height, the number of skilled operatives required, and eliminates hot works. The BIM model can also be used to spot clashes between various elements of a building or structure. This process allows for redesigns to be finalised before the project commences on-site. It also removes the potential time and cost impact of rework being required during operations.
AC Plc are fully conversant with the ever increasing design remit associated with modern construction, being able to demonstrate through our certifications and project teams that AC Plc have the capability to:
