This site is primarily focused on MicroStation software solutions & training.
We are not a Bentley Affiliate or software vendor.
Our services are based on the extensive experience we have gained throughout a long & varied career in Building Services & Architectural practices from 1989 to the present time
The services offered are cost effective training & manual preparation for businesses that need to use MicroStation software to suit their clients requirements.
We can offer advise on what you need to establish from your design team affiliates, so that you are all working in the same way.
We offer on-line MicroStation solutions & explanations to common problems faced by MicroStation users.
Company Strategy for Training Courses:
In order to maximise the effectiveness of any training course, it will be necessary for us to visit your premises & find our how you currently work, assess your current software solutions & see what can immediately be transferred into a MicroStation workflow.
We believe training is best done at the clients premises, this cuts out the cost of transport & time to the client.
We have found a good way to produce consistency of CAD output is for novices to use a ‘Basics manual’ both as a reminder, and for future training of additional staff.
Most Consultancies have their own ways of producing drawings, we will tailor our clients MicroStation CAD Standards to be as close to the companies existing workflow, whilst allowing for special requirements that may be necessary for a specific project.
Project specific configurations. Because of some Clients specific requirements, it is more efficient to set up project specific configurations, these ensure that the clients standards can be adhered to & checked accurately within each configuration.
