Viking House is a managed student accommodation development at the University of Lincoln. Made up of three five- storey buildings and standing 20m tall, it was designed to reflect the university’s continuing progress.

Metsec wins BIM/Digital Construction Award


voestalpine Metsec has won the BIM/Digital Construction Award at the Offsite Construction Awards ceremony, held at Futurebuild 2019 at Excel, London. The prestigious award not only underlines Metsec’s commitment to Building Information Modelling but also reinforces the company’s position as one of the leading exponents in the digitisation of construction. Metsec was one of the first companies to recognise the significance of digitisation and the many benefits that it can bring, including improvements in collaboration, design time, manufacturing time and accuracy, all of which adds up to greater efficiency and enhanced customer satisfaction. From the outset, the company undertook a programme of focused investment in the key technologies as well as the systems necessary to delivering these benefits, including staff training, updating processes, cultural change and digitisation of the product. The results have been impressive; Metsec is the first Tier 2 Designer and Manufacturer, complying with BIM Level 2 for design and construction in the UK and the first manufacturing company to receive the BSI Kitemark for BIM.

Norbord’s SterlingOSB Zero can be used for all the same structural applications that plywood can be used for, and as SterlingOSB Zero is made in the UK, the finished board is very competitively priced as it doesn’t have to travel

It is simple to fit, highly versatile and ideal for fixing cabinets, radiators, wash basins, railings and other heavy fixtures to stud walls. It is cut to size to fit within c-stud sections, has a pre-groove already cut and has zero knots meaning the strength of the board is maintained throughout.
