5D BIM &


SKARPA work to enhance knowledge, reduce risk and cut costs on tunnel projects.  We do this by applying a combination of purpose built, 5D BIM tunnel software, coupled with the best tunnel engineers and specialists.


The SKARPA team can effect a step change reduction in major project planning costs, tendering costs and delivery costs for your project, through the automation of the tunnel planning & design, scheduling, reporting and estimation processes.


Our goals at SKARPA are to change standard practice and to exponentially improve the level of understanding of cost sensitivity for tunnel project design changes, based on a strong numerical perspective.


Develop civil projects more efficiently by exploring design concepts, visualising ideas, and communicating results quickly and clearly.


Utilise our state of the art tunnel software to:

  • Enhance collaboration and explore concepts

  • Visualise, present and evaluate designs in a 3D model

  • Identify and resolve conflicts at an early stage

  • Assess methodologies / constructability through sensitivity analysis

  • Seamless integration of CAD, schedule and quantity outputs in a 5D fashion


We use bespoke 5D BIM software, coupled with  outstanding professionals, to deliver value. The software dynamically links your tunnel designs with schedules and quantity reporting, enabling you to spend more time analysing and planning scenarios rather than manipulating data.


Multi-Criteria Assessments for project options  are now undertaken with a numerical basis, to produce sensitivity and detail that allows each team member to see an immediate impact from changes.


Gantt chart schedules can be modified and updated directly from the graphical environment. Schedule-driven graphical animations give instant feedback on your planning changes, facilitating rapid options development and assessment.


Our software has been developed to take advantage of the latest high performance technologies and cutting-edge computing algorithms, all accessed through a flexible, intuitive interface. By avoiding the legacy issues faced by other older packages, coupled with our outstanding customer support, we are able to provide complete solutions to meet the demands of modern tunnelling.


SKARPA offers both BIM consulting services and software sales to suit our clients specific requirements. 


Please contact us to discuss services and/or tunnel specific BIM software to suit your requirements.
