The architectural, building and MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) industries are changing rapidly against a landscape being impacted by Building Information Modelling (BIM), the green agenda, globalisation and integrated project delivery requirements. Government policy, construction finance, price volatility and BIM adoption are also weighing heavily on the construction and civil engineering industries.

As a structural or MEP engineering professional, you face a wide range of challenges every day from increasingly complex projects to shorter timeframes and reduced budgets. It pays to get the competitive edge you need. Whether you're using BIM now or have yet to make the move, Autodesk alongside Man and Machine supports both your BIM and CAD needs and puts the power of data-driven MEP engineering right at your fingertips.

Using products from companies like Autodesk, Flexijet and BlueCielo, we are ideally placed to help you engage earlier in the design process, creating a single integrated BIM model with all the tools in one application for all your HVAC, electrical and plumbing needs.

Having a computable, integrated holistic model reduces human errors and improves the efficiency of delivering MEP projects through the creation of accurate schedules and bills of materials. Through this and the ability to run clash detection prior to visiting site, we can also improve the amount of off-site pre-fabrication, whilst reducing rework and wastage on site. Our visualisation and 4D construction sequencing tools also help with assisting project scheduling decisions.

If you really are considering the benefits of BIM based MEP engineering to help you become thought leaders and win more business, our engineers are here to provide the right advice and support.
