Digital Engineering Studio will be a Building Information Modelling outsource provider that specialises in the creation of models and virtual drawings that it is claimed will ‘streamline the construction process’ Tony McDonough reports
Liverpool mechanical and electrical specialist Steven Hunt & Associates is to launch a sister business offering construction clients the latest 3D modelling technology.
Digital Engineering Studio will be a Building Information Modelling (BIM) outsource provider that specialises in the creation of models and virtual drawings that it is claimed will “streamline the construction process, reduce waste and eliminate unnecessary delays”.
Co-founder Steve Hunt unveiled the new business on the Liverpool stand at the MIPIM international property expo in Cannes.
Its team of specialists will work behind the scenes with clients to transform drawings and early-designs into fully functional 3D models, which can then be populated with data requirements that will be easy to navigate and update.
Mr Hunt, who is managing director of Steven Hunt & Associates, said: “Having worked in the construction industry for over 35 years, I have learned how valuable data and open communication can be when working on building projects of all scales.
“Using all of the lessons that we have learnt from our work at Steven Hunt & Associates, we hope to help clients flourish in this new digital age, help partners collaborate and to provide a simple solution so that clients can harness all of their information in one manageable space.”
The daily operations of the company will be led by managing director, Dominic Sibbring, who has been working in the built environment as a BIM specialist for more than a decade.
As well as BIM modelling, Digital Engineering Studio offers construction drawings, BIM coordination, clash detection and conflict reporting, digital asset management, BIM level 2 compliance and a scan to BIM service.
