Our team has been appointed to design a new office
specifically tailored to legal firms and legal training. The building
must incorporate space for multiple companies.
Schedule of Accommodation:
Office spaces (both open plan and cellular)
Meeting/board rooms (varying sizes for specific uses, eg. 1 to
1, groups, etc.)
Achieve storage room
General storage rooms
Moot court (legal training court)
Break-out spaces throughout the building
Toilets (male,female, accessible WC’s, shower room, etc.)
Central reception with guest waiting area
The proposed site is located on the North bank of the River
Tyne, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Newcastle upon Tyne
Currently housing a ‘Pocket Park’, an initiative promoted by NE1
The site is restricted on two sides by neighbouring buildings:
To the front, the site is restricted by the street front and public
To the rear, the site is slight more open with room for car
All buildings are limited to roughly the same height and number
Busy street to the South
Access needed to property along the East boundary
Access to car park from Broad Chare to the North East
Stone + Brick
Glass with hard materials

Using the 3D City
Throughout this project and the last we have used a 3D city
model of Newcastle to create the context for our Revit model.
Used to better understand the site boundaries.
We have used the 3D city model to create more professional
The 3D model was used to align the point cloud data to one of
the neighbouring buildings so a Revit model for these buildings
could be modelled in place.
Tutorial in laser scanning with Paul from Leica Geosystems.
Scanned the full site from several different locations
We headed straight back to the computer suit to load the point
cloud into Revit

Modelling from Point Cloud Data
The point cloud data was opened in a new revit project and
was used to begin building a model of the adjoining buildings to
Using walls, extrusions and windows we created the facades of
We created custom texture to apply to these surfaces.
We then added roofs and further details to complete the
We worked individually on each of the buildings and the
models were linked together before being imported and aligned
to the site model.

Modelling in Revit
We all began modelling the architecture model to create a com-
prehensive mass made up of architectural elements:
Walls (with materials)
Windows and other glazing
This is the base for the BIM

What is Next?
We will then import a central model into Autodesk’s Navisworks.
Here we will run a series of clash detections between the
architectural and structural models, architecture and MEP and
structure with MEP.
In Navisworks we will also create a series of construction
animations and renders using the cloud.
We welcome any questions?
