Digital Solution

Over the course of this transformative project, BIM 360 Field has given extensive support to our project teams. With all information stored on a cloud system, it is used to generate reports from site information. Glenbrook Property is also given access to this data, which therefore keeps all stakeholders informed of project updates including design alterations. Complementing BIM 360 Field at Ellesmere is Navisworks 3D. It uses Clash Detection to uncover clashes between different models or areas of the models. This in turn has produced both efficiency and fiscal benefits.

"The scheme provides high-quality accommodation for the area. Manchester’s residential sector is thriving and we’re excited to continue working with Glenbrook on further PRS developments"

Gary Hughes GRAHAM Regional Director

"We are delivering an impressive environment here at Ellesmere Street. We are confident this will appeal to renters looking for a home in the city"

Stuart McCrone Projects Director at Glenbrook
