BIM for the Northern Hub ECS1 programme

The Northern Hub is a £530M programme of improvements to the rail network across the North of England that aims to deliver faster, more frequent, and more reliable services among the region’s key towns and cities. The application of BIM techniques to an infrastructure project in the rail sector presents some similarities and some challenges compared with the building sector. Immediate benefits of adopting BIM have included: the production of efficient, coordinated designs; clear presentation of complex interfaces to a variety of stakeholders and reduced trackside safety risks during the development period.
