This paper describes the use of IT on a major research campus for Glaxo Group research. Ove Arup & Partners were appointed with Sheppard Robson and Davis Langdon & Everest as the Project Engineer Architect. 350 architects and engineers were assembled in a single office and 4,500 drawings produced using CAD with linked networks of Autocad and Intergraph systems. The M & E subcontractors were invited to use the Autocad system which had been bought by the client. CAD was essential to the delivery of the project on time. Outsourcing was rejected. Good management and standards were essential to overcome difficulties and deliver a very complex project.
