Silvertown Tunnel, London, England—a Case Study Applying BIM Principles to the Geotechnical Process

While the use of building information modeling (BIM) and digital engineering has grown massively in recent years, often being pushed by state initiatives, too frequently it appears to start from the ground up, with the geology and subsurface data being ignored. This paper presents an overview of BIM for geotechnical engineers together with a case study for the Silvertown Tunnel in London, England, which highlights how the core BIM principles, collaboration, process, Whole Life and 3D Digital Data can be used and applied to geotechnical process, and how incorporating geotechnical data within the wider BIM benefits the collaborating partners.
