3D Design and Clash Detection Beal High School

One of the key benefits of BIM is the ability to spot ‘clashes’ at an early stage in your project where they should be much easier, cheaper and less time consuming to rectify.

EDC formed part of the design team appointed by Morgan Sindall to provide MEP Engineering Services to the Beal High School.

The existing School was expanded to create an additional 840 student places within the £17 million development. The 9400m² new-build consisted of new general and specialised teaching spaces, a learning resource center, an assembly hall and sports hall across.

The new building has been designed to BREEAM Excellent rating and set new benchmarks for sustainability in education, including features such as rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic cells and a combined heat and power plant.

The design process was carried out utilising BIM principals with full collaboration from all team members.

The EDC Design project team was praised by the client for our proactive approach & responsiveness to changes in the brief, providing a cost effective design for an energy efficient school.
