Harnessing BIM Level 2 enables us to achieve optimum energy efficiency, through intelligent virtual design team collaboration, enhanced manufacturing and site installation methodologies and the over-arching management of all our resources.

McAvoy improved resource efficiency through investment in innovation such as teleconferencing, drones, standardisation and automation is manifesting itself in improved project delivery.
The McAvoy Innovation Forum further displays our commitment to innovation. The forum is designed to discover innovative ideas from our own people, using it as springboard to decide whether or not ideas will improve our processes. The forum is guided by CORE and LEAP innovation strategies. CORE innovations are incremental improvements with a small risk and reward, but responsive to market ideas.
LEAP innovations are the ideas being higher risk and taking longer to market, creating a unique solutions proposition to meet industry challenges.
