Transforming Construction with BIM: Leading the Way in Digital Delivery

We have a rich history of innovation and embracing new technologies to add value to our services.

In the 1980s we were amongst the first engineering practices to adopt CAD and became early adopters of BIM software and processes in the 2000s, leading to our accreditation as one of the first consultants with the BSI BIM Level 2 Kitemark

Today, our Digital Delivery platform combines our expertise with industry leading IT infrastructure, processes and software partners including Autodesk and Trimble. Collectively, with their research and development activities, our Digital Delivery team have developed bespoke digital tools to capture and utilise project data to inform decision making, as demonstrated by our Embodied Carbon Calculator which uses project data to drive sustainable low carbon engineering solutions.

We continue to innovate in a Digital environment to drive efficiency and unlock data driven solutions.

Digital Innovation in Technical Master Planning

Digital Innovation in Technical Master Planning

Our Digital Delivery Innovation and Best Practice group evolve our Digital Delivery platform to add value to our services and respond to our client’s needs.

Within our Technical Masterplanning projects, we use the latest Autodesk Civils 3D software to develop digital ground models that enable digital coordination of our designs with other disciplines and site constraints. Through this, we aim to mitigate ground works risks in a virtual environment, prior to commencing site activities.

Digital Innovation in Communication and Collaboration

The ethos of using digital tools to enhance communication and collaboration is at the heart of our Digital Delivery approach.

We use Reality Capture platforms in our investigation and assessment projects to create data rich models which can then be explored using Virtual Reality (VR) technology, enabling immersive experiences for our teams and collaborators.

As an example, we use Matterport camera technology to scan and create 3D digital plans and models of historic buildings. These provide a better understanding of the architectural layout and constraints for our clients and our engineers in a photo-realistic 3D model. 

Autodesk Construction Cloud is our chosen platform for enabling real time sharing and coordination of our digital information across our office and site-based activities.

Digital Innovation in Communication and Collaboration

Through our work with offsite manufactures, we create digital prototypes of components to a high level of detail. This allows us to coordinate and optimise manufacturing and construction requirements in response to the design, driving efficiency and safety.
