Projex Solutions are a Project Solution provider – an Engineering Procurement & Construction Management (EPCM) Partner. Leaders in the chemical, FMCG, pharmaceutical & energy sectors, they are a multi-discipline engineering design & project management company offering services encompassing Safety, EC&I, Process, Mechanical & Project Engineering.

One of their key competencies is to use 3D modelling techniques when designing process plants or creating factory layouts.  They use 3D modelling as part of their standard approach to engineering design and will showcase some of the benefits of 3D as they apply to project engineering, such as:

  • Concurrent Engineering
  • Flexibility of Design
  • Higher Quality and Reduced Cost of Construction




  1. Concurrent engineering – the manufacturing team don’t need to wait until the physical plant is build they see it form the design phase
  2. Increased design flexibility – 3D CAD offers a more robust set of tools and methods to modify designs.
  3. Higher quality – relative ease of seeing what the finished plant looks like allows clients to explore more options and refine the design earlier in the project lifecycle
  4. Lower costs of construction – due to reduced development and reduced post design changes.
  5. Personnel development – 3D CAD technology provides a challenging environment for employees.
  6. Identify and eliminate inefficiencies – 3D CAD helps optimise processes by the elimination of inherent inefficiencies in existing work flows and/or practices through the design process.
  7. Improved overall communications – 3D CAD enables a shift from the traditional paper based design and manufacturing system to an electronic paperless supporting envisioning ‘the finished’ plant with 3D images rather than 2D.
  8. Increased design data integrity – With a single 3D CAD model supporting all downstream processes, changes are reflected quickly and accurately.

This visit to their offices will include a presentation by one of the Mechanical Engineering Team demonstrating some of the benefits of this design technique.

Booking is essential as numbers are limited.
