Waldeck are delighted to announce that we are finalists in four categories at the Building Innovation Awards 2021.

We have been shortlisted for:

1. Best Use of Information Management Using BIM

Building Information Modelling is so much more than turning 2D drawings into sleek 3D models. In an industry under intense pressure to improve productivity and efficiency, it can deliver a step-change in design, construction and communication that results in better buildings and a stronger bottom line.

This shortlist is for our involvement on the £82million Coventry MSCP (Multi-Storey Car Park) & Station scheme. Waldeck were appointed by Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd (Buckingham) to help create a new-look gateway for passengers who arrive in the city by train. The station will boast a 633space multi-storey car park, new station concourse with access to all platforms and a new pedestrian route via an access tunnel to a new bus interchange.

Our team have been providing multi-disciplinary engineering, architecture and commercial services whilst working collaboratively with Buckingham and key stakeholders at Coventry County Council and Network Rail.

The creation and management of data through BIM has been integral in delivering tangible benefits to the planning, delivery and operation of the project.

2. Most Innovative Infrastructure Project & 3. Best Asset Management Innovation

Digitalisation is already shaping the built environment and the potential application of technologies such as BIM, AI, the Internet of Things and robotic automation go far beyond the design and build stage to the long-term management of the asset.

Waldeck work closely with clients to use technologies with a whole lifecycle approach in mind, harnessing data to provide genuine value, better processes and behaviours, and ultimately better outcomes for clients.

This shortlist is for our work with Network Rail to digitalise their approach to Masonry Bridge condition inspections. The solution has been developed to provide holistic and lifecycle benefits, seeing the data supporting informed decision making for asset care over the entirety of its lifecycle, as well as supporting Network Rail’s ambition to create a Digital Railway.

4. Most Innovative Consultancy

Judges for this category were looking for consultants who work with clients and contractors alike to ensure projects meet their technical specifications, come in on time and on budget, and are managed effectively in the long-term.

There was also a strong focus on training and upskilling of the company’s workforce and helping employees to bring new ideas to the table.

Our submission detailed how, as a business, we strive for efficiencies, utilise and create digital data daily and continue to work smarter with how we leverage information within our designs to offer both time and resource benefits.

Although within the engineering industry the focus is often on project delivery and getting results for clients, we pride ourselves on looking inwards to our staff and ensuring they are working in an empowered culture where they are valued and nurtured. We work to ensure that Waldeck is a place where people want to work, can progress in their career and can make a difference through new ideas and innovation.

The winners will be announced at The Point, Old Trafford, Manchester on 4th November 2021.
