Dominic Sibbring – Founder
Dominic honed his skills producing 2D layout drawings for large-scale construction projects whilst working for an M&E subcontractor before eventually moving to an M&E consultant as CAD manager. Recognising the growing need for projects to be delivered in BIM, he led the transition of the business from 2D AutoCAD to 3D Revit before being accredited as BIM Level 2 Certificated practitioner with the BRE.
Having graduated from Salford University with a Masters in BIM & The Digital Built Environment Dominic founded Digital Engineering Studio in 2018.
