BAM appoints project handover specialist for Sky studio build

BAM has appointed Createmaster to deliver complete and accurate handover information on the £192m, 11ha Sky Studios Elstree project in Hertfordshire.

BAM secured the deal to build the facility earlier this year. It will feature multiple sound stages and become home to film and TV productions from Sky Studios and NBC Universal.

Once open in 2022, the studio will not use gas or fossil fuel to power day-to-day running of the site, instead using renewable energy, with the capability to generate up to 20% of energy on site through solar power.

Createmaster will be responsible for the accurate collation, management and delivery of the project’s asset information covering 11 geographically separate buildings as well as other regulatory required construction deliverables. Each building will require a tailored package of handover information.

A critical aspect of Createmaster’s on-going role will be to manage and liaise with more than 70 trades on and off-site to compile and complete accurate handover documentation.

Createmaster MD Brian Dodsworth said: “Being involved in a project of this prestige and scale will present a welcome challenge for our team of information gathering and managing experts. With around 70 different trades to engage with over the course of the build, our signature attention to detail and no-stone-unturned approach will showcase the unrivalled skill of our workforce. We look forward to working with BAM, which has an excellent reputation for quality, accuracy and innovation.”

Gary Winn, regional design manager at BAM, added: “Ensuring the highest standards are met across our entire portfolio, through the whole building lifecycle, is paramount to our business. It’s an ethos that has established our reputation for quality across the entire construction journey and during occupancy.

“Aware that digital assets carry equal importance to the physical, we needed to work with a digital partner that could manage the process of data collation seamlessly and meticulously. Createmaster’s reputation for excellence in this field precedes them, making them the obvious choice for this complex and expansive project.”
