NEED OF SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS INCREASED INCOME OF “BE LIVE”
In 2021, annual turnover of the complex construction consulting company “Be Live”, operating under the legal name UAB “Baltic Engineers” was 2,78 million. euros. Compared to 2020, it increased by 44 percent. This year, net profit of the company amounted to 150 thousand. euros.
According to Darius Kvedaras, Director of “Be Live”, the main trend in need of change for construction management is that investment in sustainable building technology becomes synonymous with rationality rather than additional costs for nature protection or comfort.
At the same time, according to the head of the company, the need for integrated consulting is naturally growing, when all services from building idea, design, engineering solutions to construction process management are provided from one source.
"Our income has been increased by naturally expanded range of services from idea to turnkey. Previously prevailing engineering solutions are being replaced by integrated services. Competences in digital design have especially helped us to compete in the market, here we try to be completely higher than others”, says Darius Kvedaras.
This year, “Continental Automotive Lithuania” production plant development project managed by “Be Live” was awarded the best in the category of BIM projects for industrial buildings in Digital Construction tender. The company is currently implementing the project for energy-independent “BOD Group” innovation center, “ESCO Lifesciences” medical equipment production plant, Tolminkiemis Gymnasium building in Vilnius and other projects.
The team of “Be Live” has already implemented over 500 different building engineering and construction management projects. These include “Dovista” production plant, IKEA shopping centers in Vilnius and Riga, “Apranga” Group offices and logistics center, MO museum and others.
In May of this year, the fast-growing company moved to a new office in ”Office 100”.
THE BEST BIM PROJECT FOR PRODUCTION BUILDING – DEVELOPMENT OF “CONTINENTAL AUTOMOTIVE LITHUANIA” PRODUCTION PLANT
The best Lithuanian BIM projects of 2022 were announced and awarded at the largest digital construction event in Lithuania - international conference "Digital Construction 2022. Vilnius". Development of “Continental Automotive Lithuania” production plant, implemented by “BE LIVE” and “Merko statyba” was recognized as the best BIM project for production buildings.
In the annual competition organized by public institution “Skaitmeninė statyba”, the awards were shared in 6 categories by both public and private sector construction projects implemented using building information modeling (BIM) technologies and methodology.
Up to 33% lower energy costs were achieved in “Continental Automotive Lithuania” production plant building. 4D, 6D, 7D Building Information Modeling (BIM) methodology tools were used in construction design and management of building and its development, which helped to design and construct sustainable production extension of building to continuously operating Continental production plant.
From the very idea stage, project was developed in accordance with the requirements of sustainable building assessment system LEED and FM Global. 6D - life cycle analysis - LCA, dynamic energy modeling and modeling of engineering systems operation were performed in development of sustainable and economical building.
4D project schedule developed to simulate construction process was linked to elements of 3D model. Among the highlights of project is concept of Digital Handover developed by BE LIVE, where specific data of products, service, instructions and other technical information during construction was linked to 3D elements to form “Assets”.
These solutions of BE LIVE ensured smooth start-up and operation of 7D building management system. For example, by scanning QR code affixed to the device, the one can find all necessary information, register a fault, find spare parts, and obtain information about maintenance or repair work.
From the 1st March 2022, legislation on mandatory application of BIM in public procurement has entered into force. Organizers of competition are happy that number of companies applying BIM methodology is growing every year, and digital construction is already becoming the standard in the Lithuanian construction market.
In seven years, even 171 applications were submitted to competition “Lithuanian BIM Projects” with private and public BIM projects implemented by Lithuanian companies.
BE LIVE has designed and will construct “ESCO Lifesciences” medical equipment production plant in Kaunas
“Esco Lifesciences” is international manufacturer of life sciences technology and equipment based in Singapore and currently operating in more than hundred countries. Client of construction of medical equipment production plant designed in Kaunas Free Economic Zone is UAB “Esco medical technologies”, which belongs to this group of companies. “Be Live” provides a full range of construction consulting services - from ideas, design, construction management to the hand-over of building keys.
Design preparation of 7710 m2 area, 2-storey A++ energy class “Esco Lifesciences” medical equipment production building with storage and office spaces in Kaunas FEZ is already completed. Its construction is scheduled to begin in the last quarter of this year and will take about a year. Products of the new medical equipment production plant will be primarily laminars and incubators providing sterile microclimate for IVF clinics.
"Together with “Esco Lifesciences”, we aim to make the building one of the leaders in the few hundred most sustainable buildings in the world. We overcome this challenge by creating the building from the very ideas, further designing, construction process management, and even planning of its further life cycle.”, says Darius Kvedaras, Director of complex construction consulting company “Be Live”.
According to him, “Be Live” provides services to its Clients according to EPCM (Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management) model, which is becoming more and more popular in the world, but is still rare in Lithuania. Its essence is that the Client entrusts all services related to design and construction of production plant to a single contractor.
“EPCM model allows to maintain conceptual and technical integrity of works, to unite design and construction technologies. When responsibility is transferred to one hand, we get new opportunities, and at the same time responsibility and a new level of quality,”says D. Kvedaras.
According to him, the new building is aiming for the highest BREEAM rating. Innovations such as life cycle analysis and dynamic energy modeling are used in design and construction of production plant. In addition, ecologists are being consulted on a wide range of sustainability measures, such as not only the protection of birds from collisions with glass, but also the provision of nests and feeders. Piles of rotting wood and stones for small mammals or amphibians, as well as other measures that contribute to local biodiversity will be created in the surroundings of building.
At least 20% of parking spaces for electric cars will be designed in parking lot of new production building and a place for disembarkation of centrally arrived employees will be provided. Traffic on land plot is designed so that different flows cross as little as possible. The priority of movement is given to pedestrians, prominent crossings are formed, number of pedestrian, bicycle and car traffic intersections is minimized.
“Be Live” is one of the largest design, consulting and construction process management companies in Lithuania, which operated under the name “Baltic Engineers” until last year. Starting with building renovation and engineering consulting services 20 years ago, the company has undertaken increasingly complex and significant works over the time. Renewed team of “Be Live” has implemented over 500 different design and construction management projects, including production plants of “Dovista”, one of the world's largest window manufacturers, and automotive industry giant “Continental”. “Be Live” currently works with comprehensive EPCM construction project management of 4 production plants.
“Esco Lifesciences” is life sciences company’s’ group based in Singapore with operations in more than 100 countries. It develops and manufactures equipment and medical devices for laboratories and biopharmaceutical companies, and offers unique solutions for laboratories in various industries.
