We teamed up once again with our long-term clients WBD, after several previous successful collaborations.

Located in the London Borough of Southwark, the development comprises 17 residential units across 2 blocks, one of 4 Storeys and one of 5 Storeys, and is part of a wider regeneration scheme.

RC Element Detailing

As with previous projects for WBD, our team provided a quick turnaround and accurate estimation for the RC element drawings required. These included drawings for the building foundations, columns, floors and more. We provided 39 drawings in total, each typically requiring between 16-20 hours of work by our design and detailing team.


Special highlight of the project Online Project Management with BIMcontact

A lot of drawing work for this project took place during UK’s COVID-19 lockdown; therefore, as part of the service, StruEngineers provided WBD with BIMcontact free of charge. BIMcontact is a web-based document management solution used to manage all the drawing files for the project.

With a unique IFC-viewer, mobile accessibility, and cloud storage, BIMcontact lets everyone involved in the project access definitive files when they need to, and wherever they are.

In a future where increased remote working is a certainty, BIMcontact is the way forward. Miles Cristoforides, Senior Structural Engineer, from WBD Group said, “BIMcontact has a thumbs up from me. I found it intuitive and easy to use.”

Files are all stored in one place with auto-synchronization and complete control over file versions. You can customize permissions and view, review, and comment on drawings and 3D models from any device.

All these things mean you can do away with complicated and confusing email trails and uncertainty over file versions.

Most importantly in the case of the Goschen Estate project, it meant no unnecessary delays – staff working remotely could ensure the detailing workflow carried on throughout lockdown.
