maber are supporting Balfour Beatty in their digital construction strategy by providing BIM Management and BIM Coordination across the project. On a project of this magnitude, efficient delivery of BIM outputs is critical to its success. maber manage key documents such as the BIM Execution Plan (BEP) and Model Production Delivery Table (MPDT) whilst validating consultant compliance.

The Midland Metropolitan University Hospital is a brand new state of the art acute hospital in Sandwell, Birmingham. Balfour Beatty are completing the work on this complex project following the collapse of Carillion in 2018. With 10 floors, including 2 storeys of undercroft car park, 6 internal courtyards and a large winter garden at Level 5, the project poses many challenges in terms of on-site coordination.
