Our ever expanding digital engineering capability is providing all the tools and opportunity for us to offer far greater support and better solutions for our customers.
Immersed in Design
Digital Engineering is now becoming core to the way we do business in EPS, providing the tools and opportunities to offer far greater support and better solutions to our customers. Our design engineers interact on a daily basis, in many cases with our clients' in-house design teams; with customers across Ireland; the UK and further afield, initiating concept designs; developing solutions and adding value through the implementation of DfMA thinking and project delivery.
We use our digital engineering platforms to encourage planning; information sharing; federation of designs; cost viability; lean thinking and effective change management while challenging waste and inefficiencies.
Leading the Way
We have long seen the potential benefits of digital engineering to the construction industry and enthusiastically welcomed the UK Government mandating of BIM.
EPS - supported by Enterprise Ireland - began the road to BIM in 2014, and through the benefits seen by our clients, took another step on this road in 2017 with the development of the EPS Digital Engineering strategy.
We use 3D design; 4D planning and visualisation with the use of laser scanning; barcode stock management and advanced manufacturing techniques to design; integrate; plan; produce; deliver; install and commission industry leading solutions.
Cloud based collaboration is in place across all current platforms from our Centre for Design and Manufacturing Excellence in Mallow.
The establishment of meps, our joint venture with Stantec Treatment was a first for the water sector. Together, both organisations have achieved first mover advantage in the development of real examples of off-site delivery, supporting our UK water sector clients.
Digital technology is disrupting many sectors and especially in the construction and asset management of water infrastructure. meps provides both EPS and our partners, Stantec Treatment, the ongoing opportunity to emerge as leaders in this industry change, as we transform our respective design, construction and asset management businesses.
