BSE 3D’s experience of designing for the commercial property market is extensive and its best dispersed area of activity. Our engineers’ experiences worldwide are varied, from commercial office towers to mission-critical data centres, high-specification financial services and legal fit-outs for local and multinational organisations.
In all regions, commercial building projects now tend to be mixed use, comprising office workspace, residential, hotels and leisure and retail that suit the BSE 3D skill set extremely well. Our regional offices and international partners provide comprehensive experience and back-up for our headquarters and local expertise.
Sustainable new and existing buildings
The importance of building performance to developers and owner-occupiers cannot be underestimated. Increasingly, the greening of existing stock is equally crucial. As part of the letting and refurbishment cycle, BSE 3D works with clients to effect intelligent improvements in the performance of existing buildings. Our Engineers have worked on, for example, the Claverley Serviced Apartments in Knightsbridge, London. This was a Victorian terraced block with a facade of key Architectural merit in need of complete modernisation and change of use. The team carefully engineered and improved the performance of the building fabric to exceed that of most modern-day buildings. The building is currently being restored and modernised to become high-performance serviced apartments.
Large Complex buildings
BSE 3D’s engineers, designers and energy consultants have extensive international experience for buildings with sheer volume and complex construction. BSE 3D uses in house CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamic Modelling) to optimise design solutions using the latest industry leading software. This information is then applied to the design of systems that meet the client’s needs while achieving the optimum economical return. Our clients often ask us to carry out full duties and fully coordinate the designs. We encourage new clients to speak to our existing clients about the added value this gives to achieve a high quality finished product and greater cost certainty. To achieve this we have invested in the Autodesk Revit MEP suite that produces fully dimensioned and coloured 3D models and working drawings, providing the opportunity for our clients to visualise and walk through the building before it is built.
Our Clients have confidence in BSE 3D’s global experience and highly-skilled teams. Dependable and reliable, with an international network of shared knowledge, BSE 3D can rise to the toughest, most awkward challenges.
Tall buildings and shaping cities
BSE 3D’s engineers are experienced in high-rise building design, both in the UK market and overseas. Our teams understand that speed of construction is a concern for clients looking to realise a return on investment.

BSE3D were recommended to us by the former head of project management at Mace to advise us in relation to a number of areas relating to the Great Northern Hotel’s mechanical & electrical systems. Over a period of almost two years, BSE3D have helped us enormously through a combination of their vast technical knowledge and their ability to diplomatically drive forward our agenda without fear of upsetting the incumbent teams.
Huge thanks and congratulations to BSE 3D on completing your recent cycle challenge. Most of you have been back already, and I hope you are starting to get over your jetlag and getting back to normality. It’s always a bit difficult settling into the swing of real life! I have had a report about the challenge from the local crew, whom spoke extremely highly of you all while on the challenge, so well done – you’ve also all done a phenomenal job raising funds for such a worthwhile cause!!!
We have been delighted with the performance of BSE 3D. They were able to take our requirements, develop our brief and prepare a design all within a tight timeframe. They then tendered and managed the entire build process to budget. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Our company employ many consultants, to develop design specifications and act as Lead Designer. Over the last two years we have worked together on a new data centre design. On a project of this size there are always areas to be developed and I was particularly pleased with BSE 3D’s response to any issues that arose by providing solution options and making sure the results matched our requirements. BSE 3D produced the Test Specification document used to test the full infrastructure and during the busy commissioning and test phase they were in attendance to witness and sign-off the test documents which confirm the test results fully meet the design standards and test specification.
QData QFZ LLC hired the services of BSE3D for the MEP Design, Consultation and Supervision works of two Data Centers at the Qatar Free Zones of located in Ras Bu Fontas (capacity of 6MW) and Um Al Haul (capacity of 4MW), both of which were customized to the End ?User’s requirements and were successfully delivered. In addition to this, both Data Centers applied for Uptime Institute Tier III Certifications for Design, Construction and Operation in which BSE3D was also involved.
Both projects were well designed, executed and delivered within the agreed time-frame despite many challenges locally and internationally. BSE3D were a key figure in assisting and supporting us as a client to overcome all obstacles, leading to the success of both projects. Their performance and technical support were critical.
We would recommend BSE3D for future projects, given their commitment and their expertise in dealing with regulations within Qatar and the GCC region in general.
We at Colt have worked with BSE3D many times over the years and have always had a brilliant experience with them. The BSE3D team always go above and beyond to ensure designs and projects run smoothly.
In particular as an example; their assistance over the last 3 years on a complicated Generator and switchboard sequencing project has been brilliant. This project was a challenge due to the Data Centre being fully populated and live with customer loads but key switchboard and generator works needed to be completed seamlessly. They created the in depth design brief which was of a very high standard that allowed the project to be completed smoothly with no issues whatsoever.
They are a great team to work with and all members of the team have a very high level of technical knowledge and all work to a very high standard too.
BSE3D have been an unbelievable find for Quantum Switch their contribution to our growth and success in expanding market places coupled with their diligent well experienced certified Data Centre professional engineers has made this possible. What we value most about our relationship is the personal service and technical knowledge available when required. We would have no hesitation in recommending BSE3D Limited for any type of Data Centre projects as long as it’s not in competition.
