REMASTER PLAN OF THETFORD HERITAGE
“BIM PROJECTS AROUND THE WORLD” The Thetford Heritage Masterplan is a comprehensive strategic plan and delivery model which addresses people’s needs, conservation needs and organisational and financial needs. This masterplan will be developed as an organisation-wide, strategic plan and delivery model for Thetford’s heritage assets. We will address the needs of people, conservation needs and financial needs across Thetford through a range of activities.
The Thetford Heritage Masterplan sets out the actions required over a five-year period to realise the vision of a sustainable city. The plan will prioritise conservation, maximise opportunities for residents, visitors and businesses and will result in a significant boost to local jobs.
Thetford Heritage Masterplan will be delivered at no cost to the Town Council. If any further projects resulting from Thetford Heritage Masterplan are determined, they will be subject to budget approval by Thetford Town Council. This brief presents the scope of work required to produce Thetford Heritage Masterplan. This includes a description of the area subject to development, consideration for screening benefits, a set of working examples for potential development proposals and the creation of any associated project documents.
The Thetford Heritage Masterplan aims to deliver enhanced visitor experience and increased investment in the town centre. It will develop new sites, activate existing ones within Thetford Town Centre, improve connections between developments and infrastructure, create excellent amenities within the town centre and use these to develop a coherent strategy towards making our town a better place for all its citizens.
The Masterplan team must cover the both heritage and non heritage expertise required.

STEWART AVENUE RESIDENCE AND ROLE OF BIM
Area – 4500 sq ft
Year – 2021
City – Miami
Country – United States
Consultants – Energy Sciences
General Contractor – Ibuild Construction
Text description provided by the architects. Located in Miami’s most extreme food zone, this waterfront project by Brillhart Architecture offers a new design aesthetic for elevated coastal architecture. The Stewart Avenue residence not only tackles environmental challenges from an adaptation and resiliency point of view but also incorporates inventive architectural devices that offer conceptual, material-based strategies – elevating Miami’s waterfront landscape.
A new residence in Miami’s extreme flood zone, this project was designed specifically to respond to hurricanes, and storm surges, flooding, and sea-level rise. The Stewart Avenue Residence makes use of natural storm protection with its first floor being elevated on stilts 12’ above sea level – an entire story – and built to respond to hurricanes’ floods while also promoting high-performance ceilings using exposed steel trusses. The Stewart Avenue Residence is the result of a collaboration between architecture students, private developers and a community. Located within Miami’s most extreme flood zone (VE) – where projects must have their first floor raised on stilts 12’ above sea level (an entire story) – this project was designed specifically to respond to hurricanes, and storm surges, flooding, and sea-level rise.
GOOGLE BAY VIEW
Year – 2022
City – Mountain View
Country – United States
General Contractor – Whiting-Turner
Text description provided by the architects. Designed by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group and Heatherwick Studios in close collaboration with Google, Bay View is Google’s first-ever ground-up campus with the mission to operate on carbon-free energy, 24 hours a day, seven days a week by 2030. The buildings deliver on Google’s ambition to create human-centric, sustainable innovations for the future of Google’s workplace as well as scalable, replicable solutions for the construction industry and beyond.
The Google BayView Campus represents a new approach to the design of high performance office spaces. Located on a 42-acre site at NASA Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, the campus consists of three buildings, totaling 1.1 million sq ft – including 20 acres of open space and 240 short-term employee accommodation units. All three buildings are constructed as lightweight canopy structures optimized for interior daylight, views, collaboration, experiences and activities. This Campus is designed to capture and channel daylight through the site, while maximizing views and providing internal natural light. The design integrates large glass canopies that create both a sense of openness and privacy, and outdoor spaces for employees to gather.
The new buildings that comprise Google’s new Bayview campus are part of the company’s ambition to be the first major company to operate on carbon-free energy, 24 hours a day, seven days a week by 2030. The site is expected to achieve a LEED-NC v4 Platinum certification and become the largest facility ever to attain the International Living Future Institute (ILFI) Living Building Challenge (LBC) Water Petal Certification. Bay View is a groundbreaking example of Google’s commitment to renewable energy. By establishing the largest facility ever to attain the ILFI LBC Water Petal certification, we are showing how industry can play a role in advancing clean energy technologies.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE URBAN CONGA
Area – 864 sq ft
Year – 2022
City – Brooklyn
Country – United States
Text description provided by the architects. pARC was designed by The Urban Conga to serve as an open-ended programmable space for the community of Chapel Hill and the Ackland Art Museum located at the University of North Carolina. The Urban Conga studio designed the spatial intervention through a series of participatory design workshops with community stakeholders and museum representatives. pARC was designed to sit on the open terrace of the museum to serve as a bridge to connect the museum to the street.
The performance creates a “playful” and highly interactive space for conversation around the design, its context and how it functions as a programmable extension to the conversations, events, teachings, and programming that currently exists within the doors of the Ackland. The design shows how play can be utilized as a tool in the democratization of art institutions by taking art off the pedestal and allowing people to take ownership of the work and space. It invites people up off the street and into the museum that might have once never felt comfortable entering the space. The installation becomes a transformative communal platform for all users to engage with the museum, university, and each other in new ways. The purpose of the project is to transform the standard experiences inside a museum. This includes an exploration of perception and audience through architecture, sound and light design, as well as user experience and social constructs throughout the museum space.
The Urban Conga series are set in a frame and viewed from one side, the arrows reflect the direction of the viewer and make their way through the panels. As the viewer passes through each archway, color filters shift as does their movement, offering different views of the surrounding context. The interlocking structure of the urbanConga system gives each panel a different coloration and reflection. Walk through the work and your movement changes the colors and reflections of the panels, creating a beautiful multi-sensory experience.
