Foundations are placed and blockwork has commenced for the new Ysgol Llanfair DC near Ruthin, North Wales. RBA are providing Civil and Structural Engineering Services to Contractor Wynne Construction on the design and build scheme for Denbighshire CC. Architect is Ainsley Gommon and M&E is provided by MACP.
The project is being delivered to BIM Level 2, led by Wynne. This includes all the building architecture, structure and M&E in Revit, the external works and earthworks in Civil 3D and all documentation and drawings in a common data environment, in accordance with a detailed BIM Protocol.
RBA prides itself on providing robust yet economical engineering solutions for its Clients and we were pleased to be able to design out a foul pumping station by carrying out further investigations of the local sewer network and by diligent drainage design. We were also able to optimise the earthworks and ground levels on the sloping site and keep retaining walls to a minimum.
Managing Director David Ellis says, “We are delighted to be working with Wynne Construction to bring a new school for Llanfair DC to replace the much smaller old school building. I am pleased that our team has been able to provide great solutions to all the technical and commercial challenges that have arisen. It is particularly satisfying to see the project being properly delivered to Level 2 BIM with the buy in of the whole Design Team and Client.”
