Ridley is proud to announce our appointment as BIM Manager for the new 60 Martin Place Development, our second independent BIM management role for Investa following our appointment to the 151 Clarence St project last year.

As an independently assigned BIM manager, the Ridley Virtual Design Construction team will implement a coordination strategy during the Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction phases of the project. Working together with Investa, Gwynvill Group and the contractor group, our personnel will be establishing the BIM management plan, Revit Execution Plan, and conduct 4D modelling for construction activities. Longer term project requirements will include developing a BIM enabled FM solution in partnership with Investa Facility Group to enhance the operations and management post construction phase.

We’d like to also congratulate HASSELL, who took out the international design competition, which involved six design teams of both international and local origin. Their 32-storey development boasts a striking north facing façade, generous amounts of civic room on the lower levels and will hold a “front row seat” at the centre of Sydney’s skyline. Ridley is thrilled to be part of this iconic and landmark development, which will play a pivotal role in reaffirming Martin Place as the civic and business heart of Sydney.

When asked about the value independent BIM Management can deliver to similar developments, Mark Tait, General Manager of Commercial Developments at Investa was happy to report the following about Ridley’s involvement: “Investa is a strong supporter of BIM across the entire lifecycle of a project, from concept design right through to the operation of the building. We see the value in a client-side BIM manager to represent our interests throughout an entire project and ensure alignment across all stakeholders. Investa’s experience is that Ridley is not only extremely capable, but a leader in this space.”
