This 21st century way of preparing and issuing drawings maintains the collaborative approach of work between consultants and contractors and allows the drawings to be updated quickly and instantly issued to all parties.

The project is really taking shape and the 3D modelling is key to this as it allows us to fully interrogate the design and identify any potential clashes or issues at an early stage in the project.”
