BIM (Building Information Modelling) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that gives architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure, we utlise industry leading software such as REVIT to carry out our 3D modelling and BIM creation in-house.
We are able to provide steady state and dynamic modelling by using IES software, ranging from heat loss, heat gain analysis to thermal over heating calculations and simulation we are able to ensure our designs are assessed in the most forensic detail and allow us to provide reports and system sizing calculations ensuring energy efficiency is always considered from the offset of our designs.
PPa can create a 3D virtual environment CFD model where we are able to analyse many items from DataCentre airflow, temperature profiling, wind analysis, building optimisation including natural ventilation plus many other topics. This can be either steady state analysis with failure scenarios through to dynamic model to allow us to consider rate of rise calculations.
Electrical Power Analysis
We maintain the most up to date electrical network analysis software from Amtech to ETAP to provide full calculations and reporting from cable sizing to full discrimination and network protection studies Encompassing the necessary British Standards such as BS7671 we ensure our clients are able to gain the correct design solution based on the necessary Standards and regulations.
Our designs are analysed using industry leading software to ensure they are compliant for the requirements of the project and client. From energy analysis to protection studies and cable sizing our engineers are fully trained and use the latest software ensuring our clients receive the highest quality and professional service.
Example of our InHouse Software
As a organisation we ensure we remain at the forefront of the industry by ensuring our team has access and is well trained in the use of latest software and techniques.
We are able to provide steady state and dynamic modelling by using leading software. Our In-house IES Team works with our clients to reduce energy and costs using Integrated Building Performance Analysis. Ensuring ‘Better Buildings /Smarter Cities’.
Our in-house BIM team use the latest technologies, practises, software and standards to produce high quality drawings for our clients ensuring full collaboration and co-ordination across teams and disciplines. We also offer Virtual Reality via QR coding to allow our clients to see their projects and designs in 3D and to allow them to walk around their projects and sign off on our designs in real time.
