Modelling & Simulation

Quickly becoming a popular component of project programmes, the possibilities of modelling and simulation really are endless. By using synthetic settings you can test, adjust and visualise your projects and create virtual, risk-free training environments for your teams

Bring things to life

Previously perceived as a costly, singular exercise, modelling and simulation is now seen as a valuable tool for planning projects, staff training and stakeholder engagement. By bringing a project to life in a virtual setting, you can easily evaluate and inspect your asset, test scenarios and identify risks when it may have been too difficult or cost prohibitive in the real world.

Through creating life-like simulations, organisations can look at training without the need for the physical asset. Staff are able to learn how to react in a multitude of situations, be tested in a no-risk environment and are trained ahead of project completion so they are ready to mobilise straight away.

When utilised across your entire project, models and virtual environments can unlock significant benefit and ROI. For example, the same model can be used to test construction schedules, estimate costs, create progress reports at any stage and be used as a basis for virtual walkthroughs meaning that your single investment can be applied across multiple departments.

How can we help?

Our range of modelling and simulation solutions can help you bring your projects to life and provide you a risk free environment to validate your programme, train your teams and test the robustness of your processes and products.

3D & 4D modelling

From site inductions to stakeholder engagement, 3D models can be used to enable visualisation of your asset. With our Real4DⓇ modelling you can integrate and de-conflict your construction programmes and rehearse and optimise your methodologies prior to plant and resource commitment

Digital twin

More than just a visual representation of your asset, Digital Twins contain all the operational functionality of the simulated object and behave in the same way within a controlled virtual environment. By replicating and simulating all the systems and subsystems contained within your object you can ask any question of your asset and receive high precision results


Designed to suit endless scenarios including construction installation methodologies to maintenance training and even counter-terrorism scenarios, our highly realistic environments complete with artificial intelligence can be configued to meet your specific requirements.
