Design Thinking By EDC Marble Arch

Marble Arch Place is a leading mixed-use development that will result in a new landmark building for London. The development consists of an 18 storey residential tower, with 54 apartments and a 7 storey commercial building providing a total of over 95,000 sq.ft. of high-quality offices.

This project began in June 2017 and is due for completion in 2020. Marble Arch has been a technically challenging, but rewarding project. EDC were commissioned to the MEP and BIM Modelling for this development

Clever design thinking from our Cork office utilised our BIM Level 2 experience and enabled EDC to come up with a modular off-site solution for the Marble Arch Plant Room, given the space restrictions of building in central London. This modular approach to design and ability of EDC to provide intricate and detailed 3D design models for the fabrication of this plantroom gave the client the following benefits:

1.            Shorter project and start-up time as the pumps were fabricated in parallel to the civil construction and as they are fully assembled and tested a shorter on-site start-up time.

2.            The client benefitted from reduced costs, shorter project timeline, and more overall control of the process.

3.            Improved Health and safety was a definite benefit of the design process. With key planning and risk assessment able to be carried prior to the arrival of the skids for installation. Less personnel required on-site reduced the risk of any on-site injuries.
