Progressive workflows

Franklin Ellis is a digitally advanced practice, harnessing the latest in AEC workflows, BIM processes and visualisation techniques.

Our projects are entirely delivered using model based workflows thanks to utilising Revit as our principal design tool. This allows us to work in a 3D environment from feasibility through to construction. Alongside Revit, our workflows also employ Navisworks, Infraworks, Civil 3D, BIM360, Lumion, and 3DS Max. We offer a comprehensive digital training programme both for new starters and existing staff to ensure our workflows run smoothly.

We’re currently in the process of being certified for our ISO19650 BIM processes and expect to receive accreditation in the near future.
