Technology we care

At D.B.K. Engineering Ltd., we leverage cutting-edge technology to drive innovation and excellence in our MEP consulting services. Our robust suite of tools includes Microsoft Office 365 for streamlined communication via Outlook, comprehensive documentation using Word, and data analysis and calculations through Excel. Additionally, our collaborative efforts are facilitated by SharePoint, empowering seamless online teamwork.

When it comes to MEP system design, we harness the power of industry-standard software such as Revit and AutoCAD. Our collaborative cloud-based workflows are orchestrated through BIM 360 and ACC, allowing synchronized teamwork on Revit models. For offline operations, we utilize SharePoint, while Adobe Acrobat is employed for our PDF documentation needs.

To ensure a dependable infrastructure, we maintain a resilient network with a conventional client-server configuration, housing our files securely. Moreover, our commitment to technological advancement is evident through continuous PC upgrades, ensuring our team operates with the latest tools and technology.

This technological ecosystem enables us to deliver high-quality MEP solutions while ensuring seamless collaboration, data security, and enhanced efficiency across all project phases.


For MEP Design and Collaboration

For MEP design and collaboration, we use the following:


Revit is an industry-leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software used for architectural, structural, and MEP engineering design. It offers a collaborative environment for multidisciplinary teams to create and manage intricate building designs. Revit facilitates the creation of detailed 3D models that encompass various aspects of a construction project, enabling comprehensive visualization, analysis, and coordination throughout the design and construction phases.


AutoCAD is a versatile computer-aided design (CAD) software widely recognized for its robust drafting capabilities. It provides powerful tools for creating precise 2D and 3D designs, allowing architects, engineers, and designers to produce detailed technical drawings, schematics, and models. AutoCAD’s extensive functionalities aid in the creation, editing, and documentation of design concepts across various industries, offering a comprehensive suite of tools for efficient and accurate design development.

BIM 360:

BIM 360 is an innovative cloud-based platform by Autodesk designed to facilitate collaborative construction project management. It provides a centralized hub for project data, fostering seamless collaboration and streamlined workflows among project stakeholders.
