“Our successful BIM partnership with Majenta provided the missing link, enabling us to build right first time!”

Rob Rattigan, Design Manager at G F Tomlinson.

Customer Challenge:

Midlands contractor G F Tomlinson needed to demonstrate their ability to comply with Department for Education (DfE) BIM requirements in order to be successfully appointed to the Polesworth School “Bramcote Building” project.

Once appointed, the project team needed the expertise onboard to manage all key related BIM tasks in order to provide a fully coordinated Asset Information Model (AIM) to the client at handover.

Majenta Solution:

Solution: Majenta’s BIM Information Management service.
Majenta initially advised G F Tomlinson’s bid team on responding to DfE’s BIM requirements. The scope of delivery for Majenta’s BIM Information Manager role was then agreed to include:

  • Supply chain qualification
  • Data auditing at key milestones
  • Model clash detection and reporting
  • Regular meetings and updates to keep the project on track

Majenta provided support and 1 to 1 training for project teams, and made sure that all involved understood the BIM process through to handover.

Business Impact:

The BIM project deliverables were handed over on schedule, in line with project expectations and the DfE is on target to receive a fully compliant Asset Information Model.

Multiple issues – including structural steel and MEP equipment clashing in the design – were resolved in advance by Majenta’s clash detection services, enabling a right-first-time build.

G F Tomlinson are now in a strong position to win future works on DfE frameworks, with support available from Majenta.
