Midlothian Council Social Housing

Midlothian Council Social Housing

We were appointed as part of a design team to Midlothian Council’s social housing programme. The design team developed three sites to a pre-tender stage including obtaining planning and building warrant approval. Along with the three sites, several standard house types/units were designed and modelled to allow their use on future Midlothian residential sites. The work included the production of 3D models for both the infrastructure and foundation elements, as part of a BIM level 2 package.

The scope of work included the production of 3D models of the roads and drainage for inclusion as part of combined site-specific BIM packages. The foundation and superstructure design (utilising timber-framed construction) for all housing units included the production of 3D foundation models as part of the BIM package.

The tender packages were prepared, and 3D BIM models created, for both site specific and individual house types, for incorporation into future framework contracts and for the asset management process.
