What we use

We deliver these services by leveraging off industry standard software and procedures to deliver multi-discipline project management & engineering.  

Engineering software is tailored to suit you and your project's needs. Unless requested otherwise, our BIM modelling and drafting software workflow is standardised around the Autodesk AEC suite of products and other packages as required and perform the scope of work.  In-house 3D model clash detection reviews and client project reviews are performed using industry standard software, Autodesk Navisworks.  

Microsoft Office Suite of products are utilised for standardisation of all engineering spreadsheets and documents produced in the delivery of the project. Other proprietary software is utilised as needed for project quoting, time tracking, invoicing, scheduling, and reporting. 

These software and computer systems are backed up with onsite and offsite redundancy to ensure we can continue to support your needs.
