Hinkley Point C is the first new nuclear power station to be constructed in the UK for a generation and will be capable of generating 7 per cent of the UK’s energy needs.
The complex and stringent design requirements for these seismically qualified structures lead to very congested and complex reinforcement details. Working alongside the main civil work contractor, BYLOR, Atkins have been able to implement a number of digital strategies that have improved the overall productivity of the design and construction.
One of the main strategies is the use of 3D reinforcement models where the design and construction requirements can be visualised, assessed and validated in a 3D environment. This webinar presents Atkins’ involvement to date, explores the model development lifecycle before focusing in on the problems that have been encountered along the way and the digital solutions that have been employed.
Steve Burton, Digital Construction Lead, Atkins
Steve is the Digital Construction Lead for Atkins, UK he is leading the implementation of technology into Atkins major infrastructure portfolio. He is the technical lead of a team of over 300 engineers, technicians and IT experts based in the UK and international, who specialise in the creation of 3D models, construction sequencing and tool development. He is particularly interested in how digital tools and software can be used within the industry to improve the efficiency of work being undertaken both in the design office and on site.
Harry Shallcross, Senior Engineer, Atkins
Harry currently leads the 3D reinforcement arm of the Atkins Site Design Liaison teams at HPC, promoting the use of 3DRC and digital technologies to enhance efficiency and quality of deliverables during construction.
