About BIM

We are at the forefront of technological innovation. Paramount to this is a commitment to BIM (Building Information Modelling). BIM is a process of designing a building collaboratively, using one model of the building rather than sets of separate drawings.

3D BIM allows a virtual building model to be created, from which all of the building information can be extracted and shared with other consultants, affording clients a variety of benefits. We use 3D BIM Level 2 on all projects and have done for over a decade.

Hadrian’s Wall Homes

Residents are moving in to new flats built astride Hadrian’s Wall in the Ouseburn Valley.

The 42 one and two bedroom flats for The Tyne Housing Association have been designed by Anthony Keith Architects, who worked with archaeologists to mark the historic significance of the site. They endeavoured to identify the buried remains of the Wall, then incorporated this information in the design of a roof garden on the flats by marking out the line of the Wall in stone slabs.

During the construction the builders, Robertsons, unearthed a trough, subsequently identified as Roman, which is now displayed at the entrance to the flats.

One wing of the L-shaped development in front of Byker Bridge is only three stories high, so that the views of the Grade II listed bridge are not obscured.

Architect Anthony Keith explained, “We realised that this meant the roof would be at the same level as the footpath leading down from the Cumberland Arms. This gave us an exciting opportunity to allow residents to walk on the line of the wall through the roof garden, learn more about its history and enjoy the dramatic views of the valley.”

The flats also echo the Ouseburn’s industrial heritage and are believed to be the first new housing in the heart of the Valley for over 50 years.

South Shields Town Hall

Anthony Keith Architects are working on the moderisation and complete refurbishment of the 3 main council buildings. 1910 “Edwardian Baroque” Grade II Listed building (Old Town Hall), 1960s Block (Beach Road Annex), 1980s 4 Storey Block (Broughton Road Annex).

The Scheme is to alter and refurbish the existing Town Hall, to create a modern, bright, open working environment to accommodate various teams and services, some to be relocated from satellite offices. The works to the 1960s and 1980s blocks is now complete and occupied

The next phase will involve the complete refurbishment of the 1910 Old Town Hall and works are due to progress shortly.

The existing flat roof to the 1960s Block has been removed and replaced with a new single ply system and additional insulation. The building has also been fitted with new windows, roof lights and curtain walling all to match the style of the original building.

The 1980s block has been fitted with new external louvres to address the lack of ventilation and overheating together with solar film to the windows. A new entrance has also been created to the newly located Café Area complete with a canopy.
