We were happy to contribute to the RIAI Annual Conference 2018 by providing a short presentation film showing our innovation through BIM. Our presentation ran during the two days of the Architecture & Building Expo on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th October and we were proud to showcase our BIM experience on some large scale projects brought from inception through to construction with the innovative use of BIM processes and technologies.
This major construction project including new racing and hospitality facilities, both in new buildings and refitting upgrade of existing facilities centred around the Parade Ring will be delivered on a phased basis over the next 20 months. Good quality natural materials will including Stone, Zinc and Timber and Tensile Fabric Structures will be used.
