Workflow Review & Development
The DCT Group consulting team review project workflows and investigate how your projects are delivered, from tender stage through to project handover. We analyse what information you receive, what information you create, and what information you deliver at each stage of your project. We review how your organisation collaborates, how project information is distributed internally between departments and offices, as well as outside to all project stakeholders. We explore ways to streamline your collaboration processes helping you share and access information more efficiently both internally and externally.

Digital Information Management
Digital Information Management (DIM) provides BIM processes and guidelines for all construction projects. DIM guides project data management while adding value to the project teams by helping improve project information exchanges and thus improving overall communication across a project. DCT Group will travel the entire life-cycle of a project with our DIM clients which leads to improved project execution at every project stage. DIM is currently the fastest growing sector of the DCT Group with multiple projects across Europe.
What is BIM?
Building Information Modelling (BIM), is an intelligent 3D model-based process. It gives AEC professionals the insight and tools to create and manage building and infrastructure projects faster, more economically and with less environmental impact.
BIM is rapidly becoming the standard process for construction. Informed clients and projects teams want to use BIM, as it addresses many of the problems associated with outdated paper-based processes.
Benefits of BIM include:
- Increased productivity and efficiency
- Improved project outcomes
- Reduced cost and risk
- Better collaboration and coordination
- Reduced rework.
Instead of producing 2D documentation to build a building, at DCT Group our process is simple.
Firstly, we build a virtual 3D building in our cutting edge software which enables us to understand the design and ensure the functionality of the building. From there we can automatically generate the documentation required from the building model. In this virtual building, people can navigate, explore, analyse and query information. This enables all parties involved in the project to make sure they understand the design, see that everything works and fits together and resolve any issues before the physical build begins on site.
