WML appreciate that it is the hard work and dedication of our staff which ultimately leads to the success of projects. Successful workforce engagement ensures that our people understand the overall business strategy and how they can best contribute towards it. This is recognised by our certification by Investors in People Gold Award.
Building Information Modelling of a project provides clients with data that is integrated and usable. Data is made available for sharing in a BIM format that can then be efficiently utilised to help clients make informed decisions regarding their future activities. The importance of BIM is recognized by the Government’s new Construction Strategy, announced in May 2011, setting out the intention to require collaborative 3D BIM on all Government funded projects by 2016.
WML are ideally placed to lead BIM schemes due to our early adoption of this cultural shift in building design and detailing. All our CAD Technicians now routinely work in Revit.
It is the objective of WML Consulting to provide clients with services which meet the high standards of quality and reliability essential to the safety and application needs of client requirements.
WML Consulting operates a quality system to ISO 9001, with well-defined procedures to ensure that design solutions reflect the requirements of the Client's brief.
WML Consulting has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification with our most recent and successful assessment carried out in April 2014.
We are also certified with Investors In People. The combination of our Investors In People and ISO 9001:2008 certification has affected our Practice in so many ways – it has improved relationships with our staff, clients and contractors and has added a further tier of confidence to the level of quality and aspiration for the further development of the Practice.
Our Engineers and Technicians have ownership of all technical aspects of the Practice such that we ensure as a team our quality and technical expertise continue to be maintained at the highest level.

WML is a well integrated team of specialist Engineers and Technicians working through all sectors of the construction industry. The individuals within the company all work closely together with an ethos that ensures the continuous exchange of expertise and experience. All of our qualified professional personnel are either Members or Fellows of the Institution of Structural Engineers or Institution of Civil Engineers, or both, together with the educational qualifications required to progress to this status.
We recognise the importance of formal planning and hold regular internal resource meetings. At these meetings, Project Engineers input current resourcing needs for the Management Team to review alongside requirements for new incoming projects.
This process ensures appropriate resources are allocated to individual projects as well as forward planning for future staffing requirements.
WML's ethos is to deliver a professional service throughout every project and this is achieved through allocating appropriate resources, monitoring progress throughout, and efficiently managing the process of design.
