Behind the Build at HMP Five Wells

Offsite and Digital Construction

Tom Crossley, Senior BIM Manager, and Ollie Brooks, Senior Site Manager, focused on Offsite and Digital Construction looking at:

• Integrated and collaborative team, with early engagement of the supply chain.
• Sharing of information through common date environments and system integration.
• Innovative tools, methods and processes that capture, manipulate and exploit data across the entire project team and through the construction phase and into the in-use operational phase.
• Evidence of improved performance and better outcomes compared to traditional methods through submission of objective measurement data.
• Demonstrable benefits to stakeholders over the lifecycle of the asset.

The project requirements were:

• £253m Category C Resettlement Prison
• MOJ Partnering Contract
• Circa 1,700 residents
• 2.5 year programme

And the key objectives were:
• Deliver on time
• Design transformation
• Safe, secure, decent environment
• Value for money
• Smart construction
