Building

In the building sector cost management, skilled worker recruitment and environmental regulations can determine the difference between a successful project or ultimate business failure.

  1. Overview

    • Companies involved in the design of engineering services equipment and structural, HVAC and piping projects all have a requirement to provide complete and accurate designs that can be utilised across planning, equipment design, layout, fabrication and construction. 

      Typical issues affecting this industry are:
    • Highly cyclical demand
    • Risks of speculative projects
    • Cost overruns
    • Dependence on few projects, customers
    • Managing the energy costs of buildings
    • Safety liability and high insurance costs
    • Toxic buildings
    • Skilled worker shortages
    • Environmental regulations inhibit development

    Despite the backcloth of recession, the UK construction, building services engineering and planning (CBSE&P) sector remains a key component of the UK economy, accounting for around 6% of the total UK GVA and the third largest UK sector by employment.

    A combination of weak demand, rising costs and falling tender prices have made for difficult trading conditions throughout the sector and resulted in high levels of redundancy and business failure.

    Whilst vacancy levels across the CBSE&P sector are comparable to other sectors it has an above average share of both Hard to Fill Vacancies, suggesting a supply-side dearth of adequately skilled individuals in the available labour pool.

    Energy from fossil fuels consumed in the construction and operation of buildings accounts for approximately half of the UK's emissions of carbon dioxide.

  3. Solution

    New Technology provides a common model to develop complete and accurate designs that can be used across all stages of the project. Fully detailed fabrication drawings can be produced for structural designs, mechanical equipment designs, mechanical systems (HVAC), electrical cable layouts and piping systems.

  4. Benefits

    • Ability to test things rigorously prior to production
    • Reduction in number of prototypes required
    • Reduction in waste materials
    • Shortened time to market
    • Cut development costs
    • Increased design reuse
