Video | How 4D rehearsals help Balfour Beatty-Vinci

21 January 2021

Balfour Beatty is using 4D rehearsals on the M4 smart motorway project, where it is in a joint venture with Vinci.

The JV is using Mission Room, an immersive 4D learning environment (main image above), to plan work on the scheme.

Site agent Toby Lidstone said: “4D modelling has been crucial on this project: it’s allowed us to digitally rehearse before we get to site. It allows us to see the construction sequence built on the screen in real time. We can clash detect and zero out any risks that we come across.

“It is vital to use digital rehearsals to deliver our works as it drastically improves our safety and quality performance.”
