4D Models for Safety

Mace Group at the LSE Marshall Building are working with adjacent contractors who are in the unique situation of working on projects running side by side simultaneously with a shared boundary. Safety of those working on both sites along with public is key. In order to ensure the safety of staff and the public, Mace has developed and shared their 4D models (Syncro) with the neighbouring contractors in order to plan ahead and understand interfaces, timings, and who is operating at what level and when.

This includes weekly coordination meetings and sharing of six week look-ahead plans for boundary works. We have instigated a permit system to notify and control works on the boundary with exclusion zones and spotters as required.

This has shaped design and methodology, for example adopting prefabrication for the frame and cladding to avoid over-sailing, fitting of safety technology that allows cranes to avoid clashes, and communicating with one another.

Consequently, we are working with our competitors as professionals by recognising the need to collaborate and work together.
