Description

Description

Leeds Station Southern Entrance (LSSE) is a signature new gateway entrance to the existing station in Leeds, United Kingdom. Constructed over the existing river between 2 residential tower blocks, and supported from the existing station structure and Victorian masonry arched viaduct, the site constraints alone make this a challenging scheme. When combined with the multiple curves of the architectural form, it presents a unique set of engineering challenges. This class will be a case study covering how we’ve successfully used multiple Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools (including Rhino software, Grasshopper software, Robot Structural Analysis software, Revit software, and Navisworks software) to engineer a scheme that would be impossible without today's technology and to bring the existing and new build elements together seamlessly. We will discuss the project constraints, the workflows used, and some of the challenges we overcame in design and construction.

Ian Besford

Ian Besford is an associate structural engineer at The Mott MacDonald Group with over 15 years of experience gained across multiple sectors. This experience included the then-pioneering use of digital modeling and visualization tools from the start of his career. Ian was instrumental in driving adoption of modern processes and technology across his team’s delivery, leading to him taking the role of Building Information Modeling (BIM) champion for structural engineering. These skills and processes have most recently been applied to the Leeds Station Southern Entrance for which Ian is project director responsible for Mott MacDonald's delivery.
