Here in Leeds we have the right mixture of ingenuity and long-standing excellence in BIM

Founded by Mr. James Lupton (CEng MICE MIStructE) in 1993 and having operated under James Lupton Consultants till 2015, now part of Atom Consultants, our Leeds office is full of experts in BIM Consulting, as well as eminent Structural  and Civil Engineers able to cope with open-ended problems, complexity and confusion of the most challenging construction projects. Atom’s Leeds office is at the forefront of the digital revolution in construction and has used Building Information Modelling since 1993. We have also invested into drone technology and obtained commercial pilot licenses to conduct aerial surveys using UAVs (See Atom Aerial). We have won numerous accolades for Innovation- such as the 2001 Smart Award for helping to fund an in-house R&D programme into the concept of Digital Construction and our employees have been presented with a Young Engineer of the Year 2000 runner up award for his contribution to the success of the Milton Keynes Xscape development.
