Video Heathrow T5 Construction
The Challenge: To show how BIM 4D planning has been used in building part of Terminal 2 (known as 'T2B')
Balfour Beatty was awarded the contract to build part of the new Terminal 2 at Heathrow Airport. They were keen to showcase their 4D planning process and how it is being implemented in the build by way of a video.
The Solution: A video encompassing live footage, graphics and the 4D process
DFA spent a day air-side at Heathrow airport – in the hub of the building activity. Filming construction workers on-site taking direction from site Managers, utilising the 4D process in each and every area of the construction process. This video footage was then edited together with 3D and 4D animations to effectively show the start of the building process through to the animated final look and feel of the completed project.
