With more than thirty years’ experience in the fabrication industry, we are a name you can trust for all manner of 3D modelling, structural drawing and surveying work. We work closely with clients across multiple sectors in the UK, including those in our own North West region and nationwide.


Our Solutions

We combine the latest structural drawing and 3D modelling techniques with decades of relevant experience gained on sites, in workshops, and in the offices of our current and former subcontractor partners. We embrace technology and what it can do for our industry, utilising the latest software, innovative and effective techniques, and state-of-the-art technologies in the processes we have developed in-house. Together, these allow us to deliver high-end 3D models, fabrication packages, and production management assistance to companies across the North West and beyond.


What Double Check Digital Engineering Ltd Can Do For You

As a well-established and well-respected name in the structural drawing, BIM and fabrication industries, we have much to offer our clients across the UK. These are just a few of our most popular services:

3D Modelling

  • We create detailed and accurate 3D modelling using the latest Tekla Structures software and our own in-house optimisations and scripts.

Fabrication Packages

  • Our fabrication packages include everything you need to complete your project, from fabrication drawings and cutting information to NC data, arrangement drawings, and more.


  • Collaboration and visualisation using Trimble Connect and IFC import/export

Survey Solutions

  • We provide detailed on-site and in-shop surveys for all industry sectors. Using the latest technology and software, we produce detailed and accurate digital assets that save you time and money compared to their hand-drawn equivalents.

Point Cloud - Scan to BIM

  • We use the latest surveying equipment and software to create a digital survey of the site or product. This point cloud is a valuable digital asset that can be imported directly into your BIM.

Survey-Based 3D Production

  • We use our digital point cloud to render an accurate 3D model of the site, one that provides pinpoint accuracy compared to hand-drawn technical drawings.


  • We have surveyed and designed all manner of bridges, including footbridges, road bridges, and rail bridges. This includes work on bridges that form part of the rail network.
