Digital design collaboration and complex fabrication

This paper presents the Leadenhall Building in London, as a case study demonstrating the value of collaborative working around a shared digital model. The engineer’s digital model for the steelwork was fabricator led, ensuring that buildability considerations were fully integrated into the design. This design information was transferred seamlessly through the supply chain, creating efficiencies from tender stage onwards.
