CANARY WHARF CROSSRAIL STATION
- Interfaces between station + retail programme
- 4D Interface modelling and workshops
- 4D Logistics and safety workshops
- 6,800 Activity schedule represented
Freeform were engaged to build and develop a full 4D model of the station, retail spaces and connections to existing buildings on the estate. Regular attendance at site and programme co-ordination meetings, led to frequent use and development of the 4D model to review the works and develop the programme.
The model remains one of Freeform’s most ambitious and detailed model to date. With all internal activities in the station and retail box fully modelled, it has proved a powerful tool for managing and navigating the complex programme of works. The model has been filtered to allow for exploding by level in order to understand and communicate the floor-to-floor dependencies. Hoist locations, stairs, escalators, mole holes and service risers are all represented. The project also plugs in to a number of properties on the estate, these have all been modelled to assist in minimising disruption and optimising the sequence.
The interface with the Crossrail works has been fully realised and resolved, increasing understanding of the programme across this critical interface.
