Ireland-based digital engineering firm Tantek 4D has successful applied SYNCHRO 4D BIM software on the College Road scheme in Croydon, UK.

The project will produce the tallest modular-built high-rise in the world with two towers: a 49-story tower (Tower A) and a 34-story building (Tower B)— including basements.

Tower A will include 817 co-living units while Tower B will include 120 residential units, a café, and community-use areas.

To manage construction planning and to create digital simulations of construction plans, Tantek 4D turned to Bentley Systems’ SYNCHRO 4D and SYNCHRO Pro solutions.

Tantek 4D used SYNCHRO to create a 4D BIM model that supported several aspects of the project, including sequencing of works, health and safety management, risk mitigation, logistics management, constructability analysis, and spatial planning.

Additionally, they were able to visually demonstrate this plan to stakeholders Network Rail and Transport for London.

Conor Tansey, chief executive officer and co-founder of Tantek 4D, said: ““Since utilising SYNCHRO 4D on all our 4D BIM projects, we have exceeded our clients’ expectations in terms of speed of delivery, accuracy of 4D simulations, and rendering quality of the final 4D simulation.

“By using SYNCHRO on this project, we have identified and rectified several sequencing errors and have also been able to identify key areas where program acceleration could be achieved.

“By implementing SYNCHRO 4D into our business, we have increased our client base by 100% in the past year.”
