We employ more than forty highly experienced Mechanical and Electrical Design Engineers, Estimators and CAD Engineers who are able to work to whatever financial or environmental restrictions our clients may have.
All of our designs are carried out using Advanced Engineering and Computer Aided Design Technology, using Auto-Cad Design Software.
We have in-house facilities for plotting and copying drawings in both colour and black and white, up to AO drawing size, and operate various software packages including:
- Amtech Design Software - for high voltage and low voltage cable sizing
- Relux Lighting Design Package - for the calculation of both artificial and natural day light
- Hevacomp Design Software - for lift analysis and lightning protection design
- Task Building Designer
This software assesses the effectiveness of natural ventilation strategies by checking the frequency by which chosen internal comfort conditions are met or exceeded. The sizing of such equipment determines the realistic energy use, and carbon and emissions targets, and demonstrates operational intent and facilities management requirement.
This software is a 3D modelling software which enables us to design and produce models for daylight simulation and fully integrated natural ventilation and mixed mode design capabilities.
- Hevacomp Design Software
Hevacomp programmes allow the design and calculation of all building services including energy calculations, heat losses and gains, sizing of all piped and ducted services, U values, condensation checks, energy consumption and acoustic design.
- IES Simulation Software
IES is a dynamic simulation software tool used to model a building and determine its energy performance. It allows us to assess the impact that the introduction of low and zero carbon technologies will have on the buildings energy performance.
- SBEM Software
SBEM (Simplified Building Energy Model) is a government software tool that is used to carry out a Part L assessment of a buildings energy performance and produce the buildings Energy Performance Certificate. This software tool is integrated into both IES and Hevacomp allowing us to build an accurate model of the building and carry out the necessary part L and EPC calculations.
3D and Building Information Modelling (BIM)
We have modelled elements of our Building Services Design for over 6 years using the AutoDesk Building Design Suite CAD software package which includes AutoCAD MEP 2013 software.
We have monitored the advancement of 3D modelling requirements within the Construction and Building Services Industry and now operate both AutoCAD MEP 2013 and AutoDesk Revit 2013 dependant on the specific requirements of the project and professional team we are working with.
Our CAD department are proficient in producing drawings in both 2D and 3D.
