Queen Elizabeth Hospital is a 1215 bed, 137,000 sq metre acute hospital, completed in 2010 by Balfour Beatty under PFI and managed by Engie.
Engie had access to the construction team’s online O&M website and records but the drawings were layered to suit the design and construction process so they commissioned Activeplan to draw together all of the information they needed and provide a platform for its management
Activeplan simplified the drawings, rationalising the 200+ drawing layers into a manageable subset based upon BS1192 Part 5 naming conventions.
This included creating a set of Building Fabric, Electrical and Mechanical and system drawings from 13,756 pdf and 5,687dwg files. Engie priorities which asset information was particularly important and Activeplan reviewed the 30 Gigabytes of files to understand what information was available.
PFIs contracts carry substantial penalties if the FM cannot demonstrate they have undertaken work and updated the records so Engie saw how Activeplan could satisfy their need to evidence that they are maintaining the record drawings and Room Data sheets.
