Source Design Services is our new name for a well-established engineering design consultancy specialising in the delivery of safe, effective and innovative design.
Source has successfully delivered technically advanced and ingenious design solutions for many leading construction and infrastructure projects.
Our engineers seek early involvement with our clients and their advisers and design teams to allow us to bring forward real benefits and mitigation through the planning and design phases.
Through our expertise we are able to apply extensive knowledge and experience, creating the most efficient solutions on projects ranging from live environments such highly complex inner city rail interchanges and inner city locations to brownfield developments.
Source Design Services has more than thirty specialist engineers working passionately to advance the boundaries of what’s possible in designing solutions.
The skills, diversity and multigenerational knowledge of our people drive the development of the designs that transform what, and how our clients benefit from our services.
Introducing some of our team below:
Our approach has seen an unwavering focus on fully understanding the needs of clients and delivering our services promises, regardless of the scale or complexity of the challenge in hand. Source Design Services is born out of the McNicholas Group and its 65 years of experience and knowledge in the Utilities and Rail sectors.
Significant landmark projects are linked to our Project Examples below:
TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Source believe in the power of innovation to deliver value to our clients. Seamless integration between surveying, design and construction is a given on our schemes. Our skill is to take the available technology and use our experience to deliver an technically excellent implementable scheme that can be integrated into the overall design for the project.
SOME OF OUR TECHNOLOGIES
BIM STAGE 2 CAPABILITY
Source have the capability to integrate seamlessly with your project’s BIM requirements having worked in a virtual space on major infrastructure projects such as the Olympics and Bank Station Capacity Upgrade we will derive the BIM Execution Plan in relation to our works and collaborate with yourselves to deliver to your requirements.
AUTODESK CIVIL 3D
Source’s design capability is backed by its utilisation of the latest software, we work closely with our partners Bentley and Autodesk to ensure that our offer is enhanced with the latest technology in the marketplace. We use both Microstation and Autodesk software backed by our capacity to collate our data and models into a BIM environment. The transfer of this information for survey to design to as built is crucial to our clients and their continuing asset maintenance.
MAPPING THE UNDERGROUND
Utility strikes are a major concern in our industry with the potential to cause injury and huge project delay. Source are enthusiastic about the introduction of PAS128 as it sets out the accuracy to which the data are captured, the quality expected of those data and a means by which to assess and indicate the confidence that can be placed in data. Source are involved in Mapping the Underground a continuing forum for innovation in asset mapping.
Technologies such as Ground Probing Radar (GPR) and LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) enable us to effectively map above and below ground assets to incredible Source will take this Intelligent Surveying information and use it to derive the most effective solution for your project , as Source owns this process it enables a continuity from feasibility to detailed design
