Completion of Bombardier VShop, Derby

Bombardier’s new testing and commissioning facility for Crossrail trains has been opened by Transport Minister and Derbyshire Dales MP Patrick McLoughlin.

We worked closely with contractor Balfour Beatty on the design and construction of this 10,400sqm building which can accommodate four complete Crossrail trains at once.

The design was realised using the benefits and efficiencies from collaborative working in BIM, with the design team sharing a fully federated model developed to LOD / LOI 4, and supply chain information incorporated to LOD 5+.
