As Built BIM for 250+ TK Maxx Stores

As Built BIM for 250+ TK Maxx Stores

About This Project

For the purposes of ongoing refurbishment and refit works to existing stores, and expansion into new stores across the UK and Ireland, TK Maxx contracted Murphy Surveys to complete internal and external measured building surveys, 2D AutoCAD plans, elevations and cross sections, and 3D As-Built Building Information Models (BIM) in Autodesk Revit format.

Murphy Surveys have delivered a Revit model for over 250+ sites in Ireland, England, Wales, Scotland and Germany since 2010. We have covered over 7,500,000 square feet to date and the work is still ongoing.

Solution

Murphy Surveys mobilised specialist survey teams to visit the store locations, based on an agreed program of works with the client. The teams were required to visit the stores during normal opening hours. Due to non-intrusive methods and experience in similar environments, the surveys caused no disruption to store activities.

The stores were quickly, accurately and cost effectively surveyed using a combination of High Definition Lasers (HDS), and Total Station (TPS) methods. The survey data was then checked and processed into 2D and 3D outputs.

Using these accurate as-built Building Information Models, TK Maxx now enjoys a faster and smoother design to completion store construction process.
