Lansdowne Road Stadium Development Company chose the Asite CDE and document management solution to streamline processes during the rebuild of the home of rugby and football in Dublin.

The €350 million project was a joint venture between the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) and the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) which, through high-level digital collaboration, delivered a world class international stadium.

Following the demolition of the old Lansdowne Road Stadium, work began on delivering what would become the new stadium (also referred to as the Aviva Stadium). The multi-stakeholder project required the coordination of several project teams, including global architects, Populous, Dublinbased architects, Scott Tallon Walker, and contractor, John Sisk Sons.

As the stadium was situated in a tightly-packed residential area, minimal disruption to the surrounding areas was imperative. Automated document management processes and workflows ensured that all necessary administrative documentation, among other project data, were secured in a centralized repository and that any administrative delays were avoided. The Asite Platform provided the project teams with an accountable audit trail, automatic version control, and permission settings.

The Asite workflow solution proved invaluable when it came to effective project communication and avoiding bottlenecks, which on large projects often lead to higher costs. Standardized naming conventions and the ability to assign tasks and permissions enabled project teams to better control project processes.

Overall, Asite facilitated digital transformation across the project lifecycle, driving the adoption of collaborative technologies and supporting the project team in their use of the Asite Platform.

The Irish Government Minister for Arts, Sport, and Tourism at the time, John O' Donoghue, called the decision to redevelop the stadium an "enormously important decision which will benefit the development of sport in Ireland."

The resulting stadium is a bowl shape with four tiers on three sides of the ground. All seating has roof cover, but the roof does not extend over the pitch. The stadium can hold 50,000 spectators with 36 corporate boxes which can seat 850 people, while premium seats hold 10,000 spectators. The new building also acts as an events space and conference center.

Both ends of the stadium have dipped roofs and seating, allowing sunlight to reach the houses surrounding the stadium. The roof is built with glass and polycarbonate cladding to allow natural light to flood the public areas of the stadium.

Sustainability was a prominent part of the design process and, today, the new stadium operates as a sustainable venue, rainwater is collected to irrigate the pitch and waste heat from the generators is used to heat the water for the toilet facilities.

Since it’s opening, the 50,000-seater capacity stadium has become the home of the Irish football and rugby teams, and all home matches are played on its pitch. It also plays host to a number of concerts over the years, demonstrating the versatility of the building. 

 

Over 54,000 companies use Asite to help them build better.

(London, United Kingdom) - ABP (Advanced Business Park) is a Chinese developer with extensive experience in turning regeneration sites into thriving business ports. The company has established a reputation for developing large-scale enterprise districts and, in 2013, expanded its operations to the UK. ABP was chosen by the Greater London Authority for the Royal Albert Dock project in East London.

ABP Royal Albert Dock is a mixed-use £1.7 billion scheme, aiming to deliver 4.7 million sq ft of development on a 35-acre site and transform the area into London’s third business and financial district. The project is one of the largest development schemes planned for the UK capital and will see the creation of a diverse trading hub.



Considered one of the capital’s most successful regeneration projects in recent years, the scheme aims to create a vibrant hub with supporting residential, retail and leisure facilities across 88 new buildings and three restored historic buildings, all serviced by important transport links, including Crossrail.

The largest development scheme of its kind, Royal Albert Dock will be delivered in six phases. Phase one was completed in 2019 and has seen 460,000 sq ft of office space created across 21 buildings. The community includes workspaces with flexible rental periods, ranging from 1,300 to 460,000 sq ft. The second phase is set to go through the planning process in early 2020; the intention is to include more office spaces, flats, and membership clubs.

Stanhope was chosen as the development manager on the project, and Asite assisted ABP in the selection process with the Greater London Authority, who owns the site. Asite provided a collaborative BIM solution along with a Bid, AppBuilder, and Workflow Management solutions.

The implementation allowed for better, more streamlined collaboration throughout the delivery of the initial phase of the project. Additionally, archive functionality allowed stakeholders to view all documentation stored during the life of the project, as well as access to their complete audit history.

With Asite’s support, business intelligence was delivered to teams on the ground in real-time, enabling decision-makers to harness instant information that influences the progress of the project positively.

 

Royal Albert Dock offers an affordable range of spaces along with flexible terms to accommodate growth. The scheme, with its 26-year lifespan, is well on its way to becoming a European hub for Asian investors who have recently committed themselves to the district despite the uncertainties of Brexit. With growing transport links and a community-led atmosphere, the area has the potential to become a beacon in East London and, more importantly, boost local employment by 30%.
