Just three years after launch, Technical Documentation Group has grown to the point where it has over 450 customers on its books. It has been a meteoric rise for the company from the townland of Lisnalea in Bailieborough, Co Cavan and with firm plans for future growth there are still some exciting chapters ahead in this success story.
“My background is in Electrical QS and when we started the business we began getting a few calls asking if we priced electrical jobs, things have really taken off from there to the point where our electrical estimating services are the core of our business,” said Technical Documentation Group, Director, Michael Clarke.
“There aren’t a lot of other companies in Ireland offering these services and we can bring real expertise. We know the systems, we know the materials and we can price jobs such as small extensions right through to multi-million euro projects.
“We also prepare a detailed project bill of quantities for consultant engineers for tendering or budget purposes.”
Whether you are looking for a full-time electrical estimating service, or an estimate on an adhoc basis, Technical Documentation Group can offer a solution. The company can provide your business with a comprehensive suite of tender return documents including full bill of quantities and wholesaler reports, as well as a detailed list of clarifications for all of your estimates.
Technical Documentation Group has designs on future growth and is keen to develop its Building Information Modelling (BIM) services. BIM is a great tool for visualisation. It enables a three-dimensional virtual representation of the building. During a project’s bidding phase, renderings, walkthroughs, and sequencing of the model may be presented with better clarity. 3D Visualization with BIM provides a better picture of what a structure may look like even before it is constructed. It takes away the effort of bringing together the different 2D views by different trades as the information from all streams like architecture, structural, facade and MEP into a single BIM model.
“This has already come online in the UK on all public sector jobs at the design stage,” said Michael.
“We have completed numerous projects with BIM but in the coming few years it will definitely become more mainstream to the point where every project, both public & private sector, will require it. We want to make sure we are ready for that.”
