Ingenuity House, a 12,000sqm highly sustainable building, is currently under construction adjacent to Birmingham’s International Airport and Railway Station. This will become Interserve’s new regional headquarters – seeing the international support services and construction group consolidate its operations in the West Midlands from five sites to one site from early 2018.
Ingenuity House is an opportunity to showcase the whole team’s intelligent development, coordination and management of BIM data throughout the project lifecycle. As a business, we have set ourselves an ambition – ‘to redefine the future for people and places’. This project realises this ambition using technology on every single aspect of this process. This building would be designed, built and maintained by Interserve, creating a showcase of our company capabilities in one integrated project, as a ‘One Interserve’ business.
Ingenuity House is showcasing our digital development, and demonstrating all of the best practice we’ve learnt over the past few years and bringing it into one place. And, although there’s no client involved, and no mandate to use BIM or digital construction methods, we still did it for ourselves because we saw benefit to ourselves.
