On Tuesday, 18 June 2019, Sarah O’ Sullivan, BIM Sector Lead for Mercury’s Enterprise Data Centre Business Unit, spoke at Autodesk University. Sarah discussed Mercury’s adoption of the BIM360 platform, giving key insights from Mercury’s digital transformation journey.

Sarah detailed how and why Mercury streamlined 20 distinct construction software packages into one – Autodesk’s BIM360. Originally using 20 different construction software packages across various projects,  the level of growth and expansion seen by Mercury soaring to a 2,500-employee business with an annual turnover of €770m, created the need for one standard field software and process for all Mercury projects. The streamlining to one package has resulted in lower costs, more consistent reporting and construction teams no longer having to learn and adapt to new software packages between projects.

As BIM Sector Lead, Sarah is responsible for the management of multiple teams of modelers on data centre construction projects across Europe. She is responsible for the BIM Management of projects from design stage to handover as both subcontractor and main contractor. Sarah spearheaded Mercury’s successful BSI Kite Mark accreditation application and lead the pilot, standarisation and rollout of BIM360 products across all of Mercury projects.
