Civil Engineering

Work smarter, faster, and more creatively in an efficiency-rich landscape of collaboration

Using precise coordination, weaver ants create very strong ant chains by linking legs. They have been recorded to support 100 times their own weight

Civil and transportation engineers, organisations responsible for major infrastructure projects, and GIS specialists are faced with a technology revolution. Technology solutions are affording far greater vision and delivering more information to inform the planning stage.

The challenge can be in getting to grips with the technology that allows you to work smarter, faster, and more creatively.

This is where Excitech helps, by enabling you to quickly make use of technology that makes your job easier and that opens the doors to collaboration.

Delivering BIM in Infrastructure

Many infrastructure projects are now required to be undertaken using BIM processes and standards, and require asset data to be generated during design which can then be utilised and complemented during construction. Populating infrastructure models with asset data can be difficult to implement, and efficient processes and workflows are critical. Excitech has provided support to many clients who need to incorporate these processes into their traditional design workflows, helping them to deliver BIM in infrastructure.
