As a company we strive to embrace the latest technology in the most meaningful manner.

Since 2013, the practice has been using BIM technology in house to optimise the architecture and coordination of data centres across all design disciplines.

This is achieved through the use of a number of software packages including Revit, Navisworks, Bluebeam, NBS create, 3D Max, Enscape, Solibri, etc.

These tools enable the practice to:

  • Engage with local authorities, communities and stakeholders
  • Transmit concepts and achieve ground breaking solutions
  • Assist our clients in communicating their visions to their customers
  • Deliver solutions that satisfy the requirements of all the business sector
  • Hold better control of detail design
  • Improve the coordination of services (in our role of lead designer)
  • Produce better designs

Engage with local authorities, communities and stakeholders

Whether it is to help the design team to secure planning permission or to assist our clients to market their projects, we rely on BIM technology to bring concepts to life through 3D visualisations.

CGI Images, elevations and 3D aerial views submitted as part of various planning applications

Transmit concepts and achieve ground breaking solutions

From the onset of each project to the resolution of the most complex calculations, our extensive BIM capability enables us to work closely with both the extended design team and our clients to deliver the best solutions for their needs.

Assist our clients in communicating their visions to their customers

Whether through CGIs, renders, animations or simple 3D views, we are able to help our clients present concepts to their customers in a meaningful and comprehensible manner.

Visuals to illustrate different aspects of proposed designs.

Deliver solutions that satisfy the requirements of all the business sector.

From technical operations to sales, BIM assists us in communicating technical and architectural aspects to ensure a high level of satisfaction and accomplishment across all departments of the business is obtained.

Improve the coordination of services

In no other building sector is the interface between services as crucial as it is for a data centre. For that reason at NWA we take the lead in coordination, for which BIM becomes our best ally.

Hold better control of detail design

A key benefit of using BIM is the ability to explore architectural design down to every nut and bolt, along with keeping the whole construction process always in the picture in order to procure solutions that offer the best value-for-money.
