ClearTech’s approach has developed and evolved over years of experience, and through the evolution of our QA system and a focus on LEAN, we develop designs which are sustainable, affordable and constructable.  Our core philosophy is to ensure the success of the design by initiating and maintaining active collaboration between clients and other stakeholders involved in the design process.

In all our project approaches,  we focus on key areas of efficient sustainable designs  where we can contribute to the Net Zero challenge,  understanding each area of buildability and risks assessment. ClearTech  liaises fully with all other designers, the PDSP and PSCS throughout the project to provide information and updates to clearly reach the clients objectives.  This also involves design philosophy statements ,& method statements to allow sequencing of the construction and any provision for temporary works which are continually vetted.

As designers we need to maintain an awareness that each project is unique and will present particular risks and opportunities that need to be addressed.  This will require open minds, imagination, ideation and a practical approach to identify risks and develop opportunities for sustainability and quantify them.

As professional design engineers, we seek to develop sustainable designs which are inherently safe by pursuing basic design objectives such as simplicity of construction. 


Quality

ClearTech Engineered Solutions operates an exacting quality management system that complies with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001 : 2015 and the relevant CARES Quality and Operations Assessment Schedules.We are CARES approved for the Supply and Installation of Post - Tensioning Systems in concrete structures.  This makes ClearTech the only CARES approved company in Ireland. 


ClearTech has successfully completing the Gold Desktop Audit with Achilles and achieved the Building Confidence Accreditation.  This demonstrates compliance with the Common Assessment Standard, UK Health & Safety Legislation and CDM Regulations 2015.


Lean Smart Solutions

ClearTech recognises that the traditional operations and models in design and construction are giving way to technology-driven and environmentally sustainable models and require leaner operations..

Investing in new technologies, ClearTech embraces the digital transformation as it improves communications, reduces the risk of human error and assists in producing leaner, smarter solutions.


 

BIM (Business Information Modelling)

According to the UN, by 2050 the world's population will be 9.7 billion. The global AEC industry must look to smarter, more efficient ways to design and build not just as a means to keep up with global demand but to help create spaces that are smarter and more resilient too.


BIM (Business Information Modelling) not only allows design and construction teams to work more efficiently, but it allows them to capture the data they create during the process to benefit operations and maintenance activities.BIM is revolutionising the way projects are delivered across industries, adding intelligence and efficiency to project execution – and connecting teams, data and workflows at every stage of the project in the cloud for better project outcomes.

ClearTech’s collaborative approach to projects, facilitates the BIM philiosopy of integrated design process, resulting in better quality structures.


 

Although the use of BIM is most commonly associated with the design team, it is in the field of Project Management that it has perhaps its longest-term application. The responsibility of a Project Manager extends to the different stages of an asset and its requirements, which will be different throughout its life cycle (planning, design, construction and operation).  The need for the management of this asset to be continuous and complete, from the beginning to the end of its life, requires a high level of control. Therefore, Project Managers have to be able to understand and question BIM information, in order to maximize its benefits. 
Traditionally the geometric model and the programming software have been two separate databases. Now the two are beginning to be combined (BIM 4D). Project Managers can work with automated data, being able to see the relationships and use it to manage the process and, therefore, make better decisions based on more reliable information, and at an earlier stage.Decisions therefore lead to better results instead of managing the consequences of those results. Scheduling and budget control are improved, and more accurate benchmarking is possible. 

Although the project manager may not be producing BIM model information, they can make use of it to obtain the information, be it in model views, other information in BIM Collaboration (IFC) formats, reports, bills of materials, etc. In other words, Project Managers are involved with the use and analysis of the model. 

BIM is change management more than anything and we can control: Coordination. Time Cost estimation. Programming. Change management.
