Sharing Learning through BIM

As Osborne continues on their journey as a learning organisation, it looks to become a leader in BIM and Training their students.
Dominic Lowry is a Technology Improvement Manager at Osborne and is constantly looking for ways to improve their digital solutions in its Infrastructure business but also, he works with their engineers and students to share his knowledge and promote great learning in this fast-moving field…

Student Engineer, Paige Baker has been developing her skills in working within the 3D modelling world by producing visual representations of the “Beam and Block” system being put in place to ensure a safe delivery for the construction of platform extensions.  The representations clearly demonstrated each element of the designs and the methodology.

Student Engineer Victoria De Castro Moreno produced a highly detailed 3D model of our works at Feltham Station.  When they received an urgent request to deliver visual representations of options for the removal of the level crossing, Victoria cleverly rebuilt the model to produce some very high quality outputs within a very demanding timescale.

Graduate Engineer Mark Howe worked on a 3D simulation of works to be carried out at Hook Road Embankment to examine the available space for plant movements.  Using SketchUp and Navisworks, Mark used the topographical survey of the embankment to create a 3D model and simulate the incredibly tight movements of an excavator between the embankment and the adjacent property.  This is being developed further to assist the site teams in their understanding of the completed design.

Learning isn’t only about improving – it’s also about sharing this knowledge with those we work with and for.

Customer feedback shows that they were extremely pleased with the output from these models which helped them to make efficient decisions.
