The Brighton 3Ts project comprises the construction of £485m, 93,000m2 of state-of-the-art hospital buildings.
The VR model produced by Sterling BIM includes:
• Every room modelled, including all hospital equipment;
• All finishes shown as accurately as possible;
• External areas; and
• All contractor’s, architect’s, structural and services’ models as well as supplier BIM models, such as steelwork, helideck, etc.
The Trust has invested in the VR as part of its change management process:
The Trust’s stated aim is to validate the operational approach and optimise clinical processes and staffing to ensure the best possible patient care. This would not be possible in a traditional BIM model.
The Brighton VR initiative works by taking the models produced by the supply chain and running them in VR software to produce a standalone file which is capable of running on any machine with the suitable hardware.
