Track record

Digital Engineering alone delivers no value – it is a combination of a clear strategy, the right people and culture, the right technology, high quality data and lean process that delivers the benefits.

Digital Engineering track record

This year’s winner, Laing O’Rourke, has fully integrated BIM into its business with an inspired initiative that means what it snappily calls “Digital Engineering” is not just for specialists, but rather all members of staff. The inclusive initiative, which is rolling out globally, involves an online training suite tailored specifically to each employee’s role and level of competency. Each staff member in this way can develop the BIM skills required for their particular job.
