Story

Bryden Wood are currently developing data visualisation workflows that will allow Highways England to bring together a range of data sources to inform strategic planning and decision making. These visualisation techniques work at a variety of scales, so certain techniques allow whole network analysis, while others allow the optimisation of placement of individual gantries or other features. Once the strategic decisions are made and a design solutions is required for specific sections of the network, a library of data rich ‘drag and drop’ components are used in collaborative modelling sessions, bringing together design, construction and operations stakeholders to rapidly model and test proposed solutions. By bringing together all disciplines, the whole life of an asset can be modelled and optimised in terms of function, access, constructibility, maintainability and impact on road user experience. The aim is to create a robust solution in a considerably compressed time-frame compared to the ‘traditional’ design process. Using a standard library of components also facilitates the standardisation or the real, physical components, with obvious benefits in terms of procurement, construction and maintenance. The longer term strategy is to refine the standard components with a view to using DfMA for the delivery of future projects.

Story

The graph is a visualisation of 3 different criteria used to determine the location of a particular component (Emergency Refugee Area in this case) along the motorway (In this case M1 motorway). This graph is result of the broarder system of simultaneous data visualisation and evaluation which facilitates decision making. In addition, this system can be applied to different projects creating unique results each time while evaluating the same criteria. Developing new workflows for using data to inform strategic decision making and collaborative working for ‘whole life’ design.
