Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson Limited has always invested in the advancement of technology and our approach to the progression of BIM within the industry is no exception. The business continues to invest in the use of Autodesk Revit and numerous projects have been successfully delivered using this software for our commercial and retail clients. As part of the progression we have invested in new hardware and employee development with the aim of offering the best service to our clients.

In addition to using Revit on projects at all stages of the process we have assisted our clients with an understanding of the BIM process and how they can implement it into their own business structure. Collaborative working is fundamental to the success of BIM projects and this is something that the business and its staff are well versed in. We aim to deliver exceptional buildings as part of a successful team and the BIM process will aid this.
