Cost & risk mitigation through early introduction of Aviaire experts

Lessons learnt from Aviaire subject matter experts during planning and design stages will reduce wildlife and bird cost and safety risks during in-use and facilities management of a building, runways and the wider landscape

  • Reduced project costs
  • Modern design with reduced attractants for wildlife and birds
  • Reduced in-use operational and maintenance costs
  • Avoid post-completion alterations to mitigate operational wildlife and bird issues.

Support and advice at all stages from Aviaire

Tangible benefits achievable in all stages of a project, including in-use facilities management

RIBA Stage 0

  • Strategic Definition

 

BIM Stages 0a and 0b

  • Business justification
  • Strategic brief

Stage Description:

The business justification and strategic brief requires a high-level view on a proposed development; plus existing site information such as building surveys, site surveys, information about local habitat, the location and so on.

At this stage key stakeholders should be involved in preparing the Strategic Brief, including subject matter experts and service providers on completed and operational developments.

Aviaire facilitated support services:

For built environment projects, and airports projects with their 13km safeguarding zones

  • Subject Matter Experts (SME)
  • Experienced Service Providers

SME and providers available in the following specialisms:

  • Wildlife Management
  • Habitat Management
  • Bird Control
  • Pest Control

There is a need to understand the potential scale of future wildlife issues (especially in airport projects) through a high-level understanding of existing and future wildlife attractants and flight paths.

RIBA Stage 1

  • Preparation & Brief

 

BIM Stages 1a, 1b &1c

  • Appraisals
  • Brief and information requirements
  • Supplier appointments

Stage Description:

This stage involves assessing whether a project is feasible and whether there is a preferred option that should be developed.

Generally this stage requires support from appointed subject matter experts and surveys.

Robust conclusions require support from suitably informed feasibility studies and option appraisals. 

Town Planning pre-application discussions also take place at this stage. 

Aviaire facilitated support services:

For built environment projects, and airports projects with their 13km safeguarding zones

  • Bird Surveyors and Surveys
  • Wildlife Surveyors and Surveys
  • Habitat Surveyors and Surveys

Further to the resident populations, it is recommended not to overlook the seasonal variations with changing migration routes and visiting wildlife or bird populations. These can have unforeseen impacts on the end design and operating policies.

Each of the above surveys will pick up these variations.

RIBA Stages 2

  • Concept Designs

 

Stage Description:

Requires early co-ordination of:

  • Aesthetic intent, form and spatial arrangements
  • Outline structural and services designs
  • High-level simulation results to determine whether the design is likely to comply with requirements
  • Outline site and landscape design
  • Outline specifications
  • Schedules and reports demonstrating compliance with the project brief
  • Preliminary construction and phasing
  • Elemental cost plan, cash-flow projections and whole-life costs assessments  

For large or sensitive projects, it may be necessary to prepare an environmental impact assessment (EIA)

Any abnormal costs will also be identified, with value management (value engineering) exercises to follow as necessary.

Aviaire facilitated support services:

  • Subject Matter Experts (SME)

For built environment projects, and airports projects with their 13km safeguarding zones

SME available in the following specialisms:

  • Wildlife Management
  • Habitat Management
  • Bird Control
  • Pest Control

The SME can support architects and landscape designers in the creation 21st century buildings and airports with high aesthetic value and functionally optimised wildlife and bird proofing solutions.

The SME can also provide detail understanding of the equipment, form and spatial requirements for post-completion wildlife hazard and bird risk management services.

This informs the outline specifications and cost plans.

 

RIBA Stage 3

  • Developed Designs

RIBA Stage 4

  • Technical Designs

 

Stage Description:

Progressive updates on the Stage 2 outcomes to the final detailed specified requirements.

The main contractor should be consulting with specialist subcontractors regarding technical and functional aspects of the design to ensure early mitigation of in-use service, safety and/or cost risks to avoid costly post-handover retrospective design work.

A detailed pre-construction assessment of whole-life costs should also be undertaken.

Planning applications are typically made using the Stage 3 output

Aviaire facilitated support services:

  • Subject Matter Experts (SME)

For built environment projects, and airports projects with their 13km safeguarding zones

SME available in the following specialisms:

  • Wildlife Management
  • Habitat Management
  • Bird Control
  • Pest Control

For project continuity, the same SME provided in Stage 2 can be offered in Stages 3 and 4.

The SME support the progressive updates with detailed understanding of the equipment, form and spatial requirements for post-completion wildlife hazard and bird risk management services.

This informs the updated specifications and cost plans.

RIBA Stage 5

  • Build
  • Commission

Stage Description:

In this stage there is on-site construction

If not already involved in the design stage, the construction contractor should have appointed design consultants within their supply chain to address design queries from site as they arise.

Amongst other things in this stage, the post-completion in-house or outsourced service providers should be appointed to witness testing and commissioning, ready to take over the running of services once practical completion is certified.

The operational and maintenance information will also inform required Site Manager's Manual, in-use Service Operating Policies (SOP) and Site User's Guides.

Aviaire facilitated support services:

  • Subject Matter Experts (SME)
  • Wildlife Hazard and Bird Risk Management Services

For built environment projects, and airports projects with their 13km safeguarding zones

SME and Service providers available in the following specialisms:

  • Wildlife Management
  • Habitat Management
  • Bird Control
  • Pest Control

For project continuity, the same SME provided in Stage 2, 3 and 4 can be offered in Stage 5.

The SME support construction by addressing wildlife and bird related design queries arising from site. On a longterm and/or substantial build project in close proximity to an operational airport, the SME and/or a wildlife hazard management service providers are able to mitigate aircraft bird strike risks arising as a result of the construction works.

SME are also able to advise on the appointment of post-completion in-house or outsourced wildlife hazard and bird risk management teams.

SME can also advise on the relevant wildlife hazard and bird risk management information required for required Site Manager's Manual, in-use Service Operating Policies (SOP) and Site User's Guides.
