Digital Construction

We invest in industry-leading software and mobile applications. So we can deliver cost efficiencies and top performance - each and every time.

Digital construction methodologies have revolutionised the way today’s building and civil engineering projects are procured, delivered and handed over.

Digital construction is inherent in the way we work, facilitating a collaborative culture and working environment which underpins our integrated project teams. With a long-established passion and dedication to construction technical excellence, we are ideally placed to help deliver Britain’s digital construction future.

A digital strategy has been a fundamental part of our approach to construction projects for several years and we have gained valuable insights and expertise that we can apply to future projects. As early adopters, we have established a strong digital foundation and business performance benchmarks that we can utilise to help deliver successful construction programmes.

Through the utilisation of BIM, information management, digital technology/tools and use of data this drives our business decision making, project delivery and overall efficiencies.

Bringing project stakeholders together through Digital adoption helps us deliver maximum value for our clients that is tangible and understandable with clearly defined value by:-

  • strengthening collaboration and communication
  • delivering on our quality, safety and sustainability commitments
  • driving project efficiencies, reducing risk and providing programme and cost savings
  • increasing transparency
  • and improving decision making and performance.
