Taylor & Boyd invests in up-to-date Information Technology that is appropriate for design, communication and record-keeping; hardware and software promote efficiency among members of our own staff and among within the integrated project teams to which we contribute. Our Belfast and Derry offices are fully networked and all members of staff have direct access to these resources.
Almost all of Taylor & Boyd’s drawing work is produced using combinations of AutoCAD, RC CADS, REVIT and BIM. Our technicians are fully trained and proficient in the use of AutoCAD software. Our engineers use the latest CADS and SCIA suite of design packages which are networked and available at every work station. We have also installed several REVIT Structural detailing packages which models an entire building for all possible loading conditions including stability and can output quantities for steelwork, concrete and reinforcement. In addition, our civil engineering section uses the PDS Ground Modelling package to analyse each site and produce ground models showing cut and fill; embankments; road long sections etc. Auto-track software models roadways and identifies access restrictions for delivery and other large vehicles.
An up-to-date list of our hardware and software is available upon request.
