Things we've done

A selection of projects we have supported

London 2012

Client: McNicholas. Upper Client: CLM

We supported the sitewide infrastructure, utilities modelling for construction purposes. THis included modelling of 11kV and 132kV electricity networks, telecoms and Potable Water for the entire Olympic site. Modelling work was undertaken using Civil 3D.

We also provided services as Tier 1 Digitial design co-ordinator on behalf of McNicholas.

The DDC’s role was to ensure that all CAD data taken from or entered into the common data environment (Projectwise) was valid, correct and compliant with the project Design Systems and Tools.

We managed the delivery of approximately 85 individual models at Planning stage, 1500 client accepted drawings at construction stage and in excess of 400 drawings at Final Record stage.

Sydney 2000

Client: Maunsell. Upper Client: SOCOG

The Royal Easter showground and Olympic park venue.

Regeneration of the former 70-acre historic, limestone quarry. Known to Sydneysider’s as “The Brick Pit” and the site of the former state abattoir.

We produced the construction drawings for the civils elements and below ground utilities under Work Package 2. Work Package 2 equated to approximately 65% of the total civils works across both sites

Beddington ZED

Client: Ellis & Moore. Upper Client: Peabody Trust

The Beddington Zero Energy Development (BedZED). The first carbon-neutral eco-community in the UK.

Winner – Civic Trust Sustainability Award 2004

Winner – RIBA Journal Sustainability Award 2003

Finalist – Office of the Deputy Prime Minister’s (ODPM) Award for Sustainable Communities 2003

Responsible for all civil drawings for the project from planning through to detailed construction drawings. This included roads, drainage and utilities. 


King AbdulAziz International Airport

Client: Atkins. Upper level client: Saudi Binladin Group

Winner – Infrastructure Leadership Forum award for Engineering Project of the Year 2015.

We undertook the 3D modelling of the core utilities tunnel network. This 9km long by 12m wide tunnel supported the district heating and cooling pipes as well as all other utilities networks. The tunnel was modelled using Civil 3D which was then utilised by the structural engineer within Robot Analysis.

We also supported the wider team tasked with modelling the sitewide utilities network in 3D.

Collaboration and space planning was undertaken within Navisworks software and became an integrated part of the working day. It became second nature to “be moving around in the Navisworks models”

Ocean and Aylesbury Estates Regeneration

Client: Conisbee. Upper level client: Peabody Trust

Construction drawings for S106/278/38 & S104. Circa £200m and £180m, respectively, of major re-development works.

Dwr Cymru AMP5 & AMP6 (Clean & Waste water works)

Client: Arup. Upper level client: Dwr Cymru

Rhydlafar Waste Treatment Works

Nominated – Construction Excellence Wales, Value Award 2019

Provided 3D modelling & construction drawings for all aspects of the project. Including highways, utilities, pressure pipe networks, MEICA, structural, Sludge pipe network and earthworks.

Cambrian North(SuDS) Detention Basin

Client: Arup. Upper level client: Dwr Cymru

Cambrian North Basin and its associated landscape features transformed an unused historic landfill site into a landscaped area with amenity value. The 2,100m² basin attenuates 1ha of hard landscape and roof drainage to reduce peak flows in the combined sewer.

We undertook the 3D earthworks modelling and subsequent construction drawings using Civil 3D. 

Crossrail 01


Client: Colin Buchanan. Upper level client: Transport for London

Supported the community impact assessment package of works. Transferring the address based, land usage onto planning drawings to achieve Royal Ascent.

We also assisted the CrossRail planning team with the systems and tools to, seamlessly,  translate CAD files between AutoCAD and MicroStation drawing packages.

A465 Section 2 (Heads of the Valleys). Water Main Diversions

Client: Arup. Upper level client: Dwr Cymru

Section 2 is considered the most challenging section of this project as a whole. Being an online widening of the existing road undertaken almost entirely alongside live traffic while running through the narrow, steep sided and environmentally sensitive Clydach Gorge.

We undertook the diversions of all existing under pressure  watermains affected by the proposed route. We were able to meet the BIM requirements of 3D modelling for input into the project’s federated models and all drawings and details required for construction.
