      BIM Level 3 sets out the processes and tools for fully integrated and collaborative project delivery across the entire supply chain. In support of the asset owner-operators’ drive toward whole life value, BIM Level 3 will enable the interconnected digital design of different elements in a built environment and will extend BIM into the operation of assets over their lifetime. It will support the accelerated delivery of smart cities, services, and grids.

      For the asset owner the prize is significant improvement in performance and value across construction, operation, and maintenance of assets.

      For the supply chain it is an opportunity to break out of the commodity service offer and be rewarded for the value that is added.

      Heathrow Airport is one of the world’s busiest airports handling some 75 million passengers and 470,000 flights a year. As a major driver for the UK economy the facility is now operating at 98% capacity and, over the last decade, has been undergoing a major upgrade program across its existing terminal, transport and baggage handling facilities. This work intends to help maximize the performance of its assets and boost customer service. Meanwhile, Heathrow’s £15bn plans to construct a new third runway and associated terminal and aircraft facilities are currently being reviewed by the UK government. Confirmation of this project would enable a step change in asset performance and present Heathrow with a major 15 year development program.

      This case study will highlight the challenges faced by Heathrow as it works to improve and upgrade the airport while keeping it working at full capacity and discuss the ways that new project delivery thinking and technology has enabled Heathrow to shift its focus from infrastructure towards its customers.

      Issues to be discussed will include:
      • • What are the delivery challenges for a project of this magnitude?
      • • How does a traditional industry morph into a cutting-edge customer focused business?
      • • What new talent is needed to transform the sector?
      • • What are the technology opportunities and challenges?
      • • What are the cultural challenges?
      • • How has the role of the existing supply chain had to change?
      • • What are the lessons learned from similar transformation projects across other sectors?
