The BIM Specialist
Evolve is one of the UK’s premier BIM and design technology consultancies. The internationally renowned consultancy was formed in 2005, becoming incorporated in 2007, to provide support and development services to the construction industry. Evolve delivers consulting services and support to clients, contractors, architects and engineers in the UK, the US, Europe, Middle East and Australia.
Evolve offers the experience required for the design, development and implementation of technology-enabled data production processes, preparing the way for new methods of working.
Evolve’s aims are to:
- Implement technology to support your business needs.
- Always account for the human aspects of any solution.
- Unlock the full potential of existing assets.
- Ease the learning process.
- Reduce risk and maximise productivity.
We provide a service that we believe is unique in the UK, and one of the best in the world.
WE’RE EXPERTS AT THIS
Our client list and track record speak for themselves – we know what we’re doing and can back it up with extensive experience. Our approach is always based on tried and tested methods, proven by some of the best practices in the world. We don’t believe you’ll find anyone better.
WE UNDERSTAND DESIGN
All of us are qualified within the architecture or engineering fields. We’ve worked on projects for most of our careers and still do. We’ve all been up against deadlines late on a Friday night, so we realise our solutions have got to help deliver. It’s an important part of our success.
WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE
You’ll find we’re all open, approachable and can communicate at all levels. We’ll cut through the “tech talk”, breaking it down into easily understandable concepts. Whatever the situation, you’ll know exactly what we’re proposing and what it means.
Seriously. It might be a cheesy thing to say, but we do really enjoy our work. For us, business is not about getting in, doing a job and getting out. It’s about building a relationship, working together and passing on our knowledge. Ask anyone we’ve worked with, they’ll agree.
We are a climate positive, carbon neutral company, offsetting our footprint (and more) every month.
Every time we travel, we add to the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. Even the equipment we use comes at a cost to our planet. We believe it is critical that we all make a change, no matter how small, and so for each day we work with our clients we plant them a tree and match it by planting one for us too. That way, when you work with us, not only do you get the benefit of our experience, you also help improve the world we all live in.

The Evolve BIM Workshop is an invaluable day, time very well spent. Evolve guided us through every aspect of BIM and enabled us to define our adoption strategy in line with Level 2 BIM requirements.

I learnt a great deal, and have a much better idea of how we might achieve the functionality we require. I was also impressed with your knowledge, and look forward to further collaboration.

Thank you for your hard work to date. It is because of you we have arrived at a position of agreement of zero major clashes entering Contract, with several weeks still to go. It's a testament to you and your team at Evolve. It has resulted in the Contractor also acknowledging this and agreeing that it is one of the healthiest models that they have inherited.

The trainer clearly knew his stuff and was more than willing to adapt the course content to our needs which worked extremely well.
BIM consultants are like rock guitar players. There are some really good ones out there but they are few and far between. The detailed assignments we request from Evolve are delivered on time, within budget and often exceed our expectations...and these are not easy assignments. We would not hesitate in recommending Evolve to anyone looking for the highest quality BIM services.

We received exactly what we were after: focusing on the subject areas we needed to expand on, but ensuring we had the basics behind it to achieve that goal. Your knowledge and delivery was exceptional.
