“The service provided by Freeform was excellent. They integrated well with both our temporary works and construction teams, providing a focused yet flexible approach within a demanding timescale.”

The model developed with the team at Moorgate allowed for the sequence to be optimised and spacial consideration better understood.  The model is an example of a very detailed and technical approach, where excavation levels and precision of permanent and temporary works were key to the model's success.

The image shown above is the 14th revision of the construction sequence. A series of what-if options were explored and details refined as the model progressed.  Weekly review and development meetings took place where the model was re-built in real time, reflecting the project team’s latest strategy.

The gallery to the right shows the evolution of the model and programme as both were developed in parallel over an intense 7 week period. At the end of the period, the resulting model, programme and strategy for the project was more robust and optimsed.
