Delivering design & engineering solutions for agricultural, distilling and biomass storage


Our design and consultation services enables you to see the proposed layout of your plant before work even begins. By using 3D CAD software alongside our point cloud scans, we can design a complete turnkey system for your plant. In addition, our 3D scanner collates every dimension available in the space.  This allows us to build a complete replica of the site within our design software. Once the scans are collated, a 3D model of the plant can be created.  Proposed new equipment can then be placed in to meet your specific requirements and as a result, allow you to see the new machinery within the scan model.

If you would like advice and support on how to layout new machinery or reconfigure old systems, please contact us and we will be happy to carry out a site survey.
