Collapse Expand


The success story of how DRA GLOBAL an Engineering Service company in the Mining and Mineral Resource space transitioned to cloud collaboration.
With basic BIM360 usage, and enough DOCS licenses we were able to “unlock” the sudden lockdown situation. A fast-track transition was required to service multiple projects at various stages of design and construction. Reassuring our Project Teams, Client’s and Sub-Contractors that work will continue as normal.
With BIM360 DOCS functionalities and well-established workflows and processes, we transitioned into the digital workspace. Instantly our 350 strong multidisciplinary Design group, could carry on working remotely. We shared designs, reviewed, checked and approved drawings with Clients, Consultants, Suppliers, and Sub-Contractors' input. A highlight was the application of 3D Model content used for reviews, which just reinforced DRA Global’s design capabilities and gave a sense of confidence to all.
