BC Enterprise+ will provide ‘360-degree view of the entire project’s assets’ pre, during and post construction
Real estate investment company, British Land, will be partnering with asset information management provider GroupBC and digital transformation expert Concentre Consulting as part of plans to deliver a £3bn new town centre at Canada Water in London.
The 53-acre project, which is anticipated to take around 15 years to deliver, will see GroupBC implement its BC Enterprise+ common data environment (CDE) solution. According to GroupBC, this will enable a Digital Twin of the entire Canada Water Masterplan as well as using enriched 3D models and mapping information. The solution’s visual map interface will situate all built assets into its surrounding environment, with the aim of providing a holistic, thorough view of the entire project.
The masterplan will deliver around two million sq. ft. of workspace to accommodate around 20,000 jobs, one million sq. ft. of retail, leisure, entertainment, education and community space and around 3,000 new homes, of which 35% will be affordable. Wellbeing will also be embedded into plan, with large green areas, a new town square and a high street.
“This solution will offer British Land unlimited user licenses, enabling users to have a 360-degree view of the entire project’s assets pre, during and post construction, assuring quality and streamlining execution,” said Sanjeev Shah, Partner and Strategy and International Development Director at GroupBC. “We are delighted to be working with British Land, on what will be a momentous project that will truly make a difference to this area of south-east London.”
According to GroupBC, the CDE is aligned with BIM standards PAS 1992 and ISO 19650 and will enforce document naming conventions to assure consistency of information. Audit trails will also be retained to track the ‘golden thread’ of accountability to help assure quality building design and performance, and information accessibility. On handover, the system will allow British Land to monitor and maintain ongoing operations of all built assets across the Canada Water scheme.
