The Problem with Digital Engineering

Digital engineering involves capturing and integrating data into a federated model or Digital Twin so that it can be leveraged by construction teams, asset owners and/or facility managers. It can facilitate governance, transparency, and enhanced decision making, for better project outcomes and long-term savings.

How Visualizations and 3D Animations Simplify Complexities and Improve Safety Outcomes for Construction Projects

Industrial visualizations offer a major step-change in how construction projects can be delivered and maintained. They deliver real-time, realistic and technically accurate representations of complex assets, resulting in increased levels of communication, clarity and engagement for all stakeholders.

How Quality Construction Modeling and Detailing Can Bolster Sustainability Outcomes in Construction

Construction Modeling and detailing of everything from steel, concrete, timber and vendor items can play an important role in bolstering the sustainability credentials of construction projects. Pre-construction planning, modeling and detailing can assist in minimising waste, reducing rework and the consumption of these raw materials.

How Thinking Digital, and Leveraging Our Past, Can Make the Most Complex Infrastructure Project Simpler

The construction and infrastructure industry needs digital disruption. According to research by McKinsey & Company, large construction projects typically take approximately 20 per cent longer to finish than scheduled and are up to 80 per cent over budget.

Why Precise Structural Steel Detailing is Critical for Complex Projects

To ensure millimeter-perfect dimensions and designs, structural steel detailing requires high-quality and precise 3D modeling. This modeling provides a suite of data and information to produce other 2D drawings and deliverables, and can be undertaken through several steel detailing software packages.

What is a Digital Twin?

A federated dataset that we might be familiar with in project delivery, generally in the form of a Navisworks model (or similar), is not the same thing as a Digital Twin.

How Visualizations and 3D Animations Simplify Complexities and Improve Safety Outcomes for Mining, Oil and Gas Projects

Industrial visualizations offer a major step-change in how mining and oil and gas assets can be operated and maintained. They deliver real-time, realistic and technically accurate representations of complex assets, resulting in increased levels of communication, clarity and engagement for all stakeholders.

How Visualizations and 3D Animations Simplify Complexities and Improve Safety Outcomes for Infrastructure Projects

Industrial visualizations offer a major step-change in how infrastructure assets can be built, operated and maintained. They deliver real-time, realistic and technically accurate representations of complex assets, resulting in increased levels of communication, clarity and engagement for all stakeholders.
