Constructing Excellence


Standing out from the crowd:

Procurement supported innovation
Gwynedd’s ambition for their new school was to support maximum involvement of the local supply chain and leave a lasting legacy for years to come by maximising collaborative working and digital construction BIM enabled processes.
The whole team approach, instigated through the Early Contractor Involvement from RIBA stage 1 demonstrates exemplar application of digital technologies that support the Construction 2025 agenda and make digitisation available to all by removing barriers.

“Proper BIM” – Client and supply chain inclusive training and upskilling in BIM have delivered significant local benefits that leave substantial legacy value within the supply chain, contractor, client and professional services consultants alike. Reads deployed our award winning experience in BIM and the benefit of the systems and procedures within our ISO 19650 BIM BSI – the first awarded in Wales.

Breaking new ground in digital construction – This is the winning entry because we have delivered a project that breaks new ground in digital construction on several fronts. We have gone above and beyond on many aspects of the project through developing the skills of the end users and the supply chain in doing so.

Sharing success with Industry:

Read have been advocates of the CEW and Exemplar programmes since the inaugural CEW awards in 2008, sharing lessons with best practice club events to showcase lessons and outcomes ‘warts and all’.

The development of the project showcases a collaborative approach that focuses on digital competencies that demonstrate commitment and support of the well-being goals of the Future Generations (Wales) Act, maximising prosperity, building resilience and promoting equality.

The inclusion in this award call is part of our dissemination plan for the project and further applications planned.


Constructing Excellence


The project can build on this by:

• captured in a case study with BSI,
• offered as an exemplar project with the whole team ready to present at various professional events,
• Feeding the project impacts and outcomes Academic research exercises (already executed with Cardiff Metropolitan University)
• Open forum local market meetings could include this project as example in the “what can be achieved” prior to highlighting the opportunities to Industry attendees, stakeholders and Clients.
