Museum of LondonFarringdon

Europe’s largest cultural sector project will restore important examples of Victorian architecture and create a new museum that celebrates the city.

Ridge is providing BIM Information Management and BIM Coordination services as a direct appointment to the Museum of London across an approximate six-year programme from concept to handover stages. As a high complexity refurbishment and reconstruction scheme, the project will refresh an intricate network of existing market building spaces involving engagement across a very large project team comprising a diverse range of industry specialists.

Initial activities involved supporting the client team in determining their strategic aspirations for implementing BIM on the project and agreeing the contents of the Employer’s Information Requirements (EIR). Ridge also reviewed multiple streams of point-cloud survey data and existing condition models to comment on suitability for use by the design team. Subsequent activities involved engagement with the design team to agree the compliant processes and procedures and document these via the BIM Execution Plan (BEP). In parallel, Ridge supported the procurement process for the client’s Common Data Environment (CDE) platform and deployed an interim solution during this period in order to provide a central platform for exchanging project information.


A consultative approach to delivering the services ensured that both the client and design team were able to gain a deeper understanding and knowledge of BIM, digital processes, and the value to be gained from implementation. The risks were reduced through enhanced coordination and collaboration ahead of the tender stage, and better tailored deliverables to serve the client’s long-term objectives.
