Sunshine Coast Public Hospital | Mitchell Brandtman

How Collaboration Delivered on Huge Hospital Project

“Mitchell Brandtman's 5D Quantity Surveying skills have allowed Lend Lease to solve one of the industry's pressing issues. The desire is to tender on the latest documents still being worked on while Bills of Quantities are prepared. Being able to rapidly update the final Bill of Quantities to the final BIM model and communicating those changes quickly to the wider team with simple 3D model overlays that highlight what’s changed, has been immensely powerful.” - Tony Avsec, Lend Lease
