how we work

software technologies

Utilizing the latest technologies combined with our extensive experience + expertise we provide cutting edge solutions for minerals mining and processing.


A structural + detailing analysis of the proposed design prior to development. Results of the analysis provide structural capabilities, eliminating possible design defects + ensuring the safety + integrity of every design.

Auto Desk

AutoCAD + AutoCAD LT
An industry standard 2D + 3D computer aided design software for drafting + 3D modelling, allowing seamless collaboration + integration with other software + systems.

Autodesk Navisworks Manager
3D design software for design review + presentation, with real-time navigation, 4D time simulation + photo-realistic rendering functionality.

Strand 7

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software through use of engineering + mathematical physics problem solving algorithms provide a fully integrated virtual environment for the construction, simulation, analysis + review of technical design models. A thorough + detailed analysis of individual modular elements though digital simulation allows for efficient problem solving + eliminates any possible design defects + associated delays prior to development.

Microsoft Project

A Project Management program for the development + co-ordination of resources, tasks, analysis of workloads + budget management to ensure projects are completed on time + budget.

Bentley Systems

Software solutions for infrastructure design + management, with an AutoCAD integration application. Primarily used to model + design Plant + Isometric piping + structural elements.

Offers an intuitive + integrated multi-material modeller for the design, assembly + management of complex steel + metal work structures.

Software specifically developed for modern plant design, provides an efficient piping + equipment designing tool.


Through the use of a ‘flowsheet aware’ drawing package built into Microsoft Excel spreadsheets is able to easily + efficiently generated report quality flowsheets for the use in process related design.
