Building Information Modelling (BIM), Thermal Modelling and Analysis and Specialist Lighting Calculations

2D CAD has been the standard method of drawing production for too long. Technology has advanced and now allows us to produce design information that is fully integrated and co-ordinated in a single 3D building model. By producing a 3D model the construction team and client have a better understanding of the design intent and that understanding allows the whole process to progress much more smoothly.

Our CAD software also allows us to undertake calculations and simulations to prove our design solutions and explore options at the concept stage.

We have invested time and resources to ensure our staff are competent in the use of the following software:

  • Autodesk AutoCAD 2D drawing software for traditional layout and schematic drawings
  • Autodesk Revit MEP software for full BIM compatibility and integration
  • IES Virtual Environment for thermal modelling, environmental energy calculations and dynamic simulation
  • Amtech Pro for electrical design and verification
  • Dialux and Relux for detailed internal lighting design
  • Lighting Reality for external lighting design
