RNLI Porthdinllaen wins CIBSE collaboration award 2017.


Collaborative success.

Recognised for our work with the RNLI at its lifeboat station in Porthdinllaen, Wales, the award recognises shining examples of collaboration that lead to  outstanding outcomes on new-build or refurbishment projects.

RNLI Porthdinllaen

This was clearly a challenging project in a sensitive location.

The key successes of the lifeboat station – in particular, it’s use of BIM – have all been as a result of our close working relationship with the contractor and client, from concept to construction. The project team, who were honoured on the night, demonstrated both commitment and agility to overcome significant challenges, creating a design fit for an area of outstanding natural beauty, with minimal impact to the local environment.

The judges commented: “This is a great example demonstrating ongoing involvement with key team members; it was clearly a challenging project in a sensitive location. This is a great example of successful use of BIM in collaboration.”

Congratulations to project lead, Phil Thornsby, and team for a fantastic achievement.
