The 2012 London Olympics called for an upgrade to the UK main sporting facilities, which included building the state-of-the-art London Olympic Stadium. The stadium was built in Stratford, London, and hosted the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics in 2012, one of the world’s greatest sporting events. It was constructed on a 40-acre site as an 80,000 seat venue, designed to convert into a 25,000 seat venue after the 2012 Olympic Games.
Fulcro was delighted to be part of this prestigious project. A highly elaborate and detailed design proposal was needed to ensure there were no significant delays or risks to the development. Fulcro was appointed to develop a 3D model that would show exactly how the construction would take place, and how the project would progress through every level. We established a Baseline 3D Model of Stage E design, and managed the incorporation of information from the various trades into a fully coordinated digital prototype.
Once the 3D model was created the design could then be managed and changes assessed with ease. This model also became a baseline for conflict resolution. Clashes and conflicts were resolved within a 3D virtual environment and the solutions communicated in a clear and concise manner resulting in reduced issues during construction on-site.
