Crossrail’s innovative digital and information management strategy has delivered a step change in the deployment of building information modelling (BIM) and digital design, and embedded a collaborative, cost-effective approach to technical problem-solving and workflow management between sponsors, client, designers, contractors and suppliers.
Crossrail also promoted the use of off-site manufacturing, including design for manufacturing and assembly (DfMA) techniques helping to improve productivity, quality and safety in UK construction projects. Crossrail’s award-winning Innovate18 programme captures and explores pioneering ideas from all those involved in the project, helping to raise the bar for other major projects.
