Driving Excellence Through Industry Leading Technology

With over 80 years of experience, the Woolacotts Engineering team understand the importance of utilising new and emerging technologies within engineering practice to increase efficiency and deliver the best results on projects.

Woolacotts have integrated traditional documentation with specialised Building Information Model (BIM) design content to produce BIM to Level of Development (LOD) 300, suitable for consultant co-ordination and tendering documentation. We have extensive experience in collaborating with architects, structural, civil and services engineering consultants, using Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD Civil 3D for the co-ordination of structural, civil, hydraulic and fire designs.

Our use of BIM has been adopted in accordance with Industry best practices and NATSPEC BIM Guide and gives us a leading edge to the design and content we deliver on our award winning projects.

Woolacotts CAD Manager, Brett Jovanovich stated:

We believe it’s important to be open and flexible, to embrace change as it happens which is why we’ve put an emphasis on training our team in new engineering technologies.”

Brett leads a team of CAD drafting professionals who are all trained experts in the use of Building Information Model (BIM) and Level of Development (LOD) technology.
