The Engineering Draughting Co


The Engineering Draughting Co has worked with some of the leading consultancies in the UK water industry.  We specialise in the provision of professional draughting services for the planning, detailed design and as built drawings for a wide range of projects and schemes.

The water industry sits right at the heart of our business.  Few draughting companies  can demonstrate both the track record and current expertise in the detailing of individual small plants and large capital investment programmes.  We advise clients on all strategic and functional aspects covering the design and detailing of plant and equipment in the waste water environment.

Water is the lifeblood of our bodies, our economy, our nation and our well-being.

The Engineering Draughting Co has continued to build significantly in terms of expertise, culture and experiences into AMP4 (2005-2010) in England. Our major contracts in AMP4 include: Severn Trent Water AMP4 Engineering Framework; Anglian Water AMP4 @one alliance; Yorkshire Water AMP4 Major Projects Framework; Northumbrian Water AMP4 Infrastructure Engineering Framework; United Utilities AMP3 Consultancy Framework (currently extended into AMP4).

To understand water is to understand the cosmos, the marvels of nature, and life itself.

Waste water treatment

Recent scientific and technological advances have led to many exciting developments in water resource engineering and water treatment techniques. The Engineering Draughting Co has played an active role in these global developments along with consultancies such as MWH and Grontmij, who are considered to be some of the world’s leading experts in this area.

We have worked within strategic alliances managing delivery of capital programmes as part of the design team for contractors on design and construct projects. We offer a full engineering draughting service for waste water treatment plants ranging from small rural plants to larger urban treatment plants. We have worked on water treatment plants ranging in capacity from 3.8 to 2,810 ML/d (or 1 to 742 MGD).

Computer Aided Design

Computer aided design (CAD) has been used to design municipal water and wastewater projects for more than a decade. Most CAD systems, however, still function as they did 10 years ago - as a two-dimensional electronic drawing board.

Fortunately, three-dimensional computer generated models have become common in the water and wastewater industry for visualization and conceptual design but they've seen limited use in the final, detail design of treatment facilities and conveyance systems. That may soon be changing.

The benefits of this sophisticated tool are many: Lower design costs, shortened construction schedules, more cost effective construction methods and even lower operational costs.

Leading the way

The Engineering Draughting Co is capable of applying 3D CAD technologies for the water and wastewater industry and we currently have a number of complex 3D projects in place.

The challenge for many clients is finding a partner who has the knowledge and expertise to customize this complex technology for design-build projects.

All the waters run to the sea and yet the sea is not full, and from the place where they began, thither they return again.

The Engineering Draughting Co have developed a culture of working with our clients not merely for them. This attitude to collaborative team working allows us to work effectively with the project engineers and managers of our clients within the supply chain to deliver capital efficiencies and deliver projects on programme. Our draughtsmen are our most valuable asset, comprising highly qualified technical staff. We are able to offer all the appropriate skills from within the company to deliver a cost-effective one-stop-shop draughting service.
