The engineering design process is a methodical series of steps that engineers use in creating functional products and processes. Throughout its 18 international offices, DRA Global employs highly experienced engineers, renowned in their various fields. As a multidisciplinary engineering group, DRA Global can assist clients with mining, mineral processing, energy, water treatment, industrial and infrastructure services.


  • DRA Global’s highly skilled Designers, BIM Modelers and Design Packages Specialist spread over 14 Engineering disciplines, produce intelligent 3D models in a live collaborative environment.
  • DRA Global values continues research, refinement and development, with a focus on reviewing internal workflows, design packages, latest technology and industry requirements to ensure consistent delivery of high quality designs.



  • 3D models are a digital representation of the physical and the functional characteristics of the plant/mine facility DRA Global designs.
  • With a carefully selected software portfolio, it enables the various disciplines to utilise the live collaborative environment and follow connected BIM workflows.
  • BIM Workflows are prioritised due to their proven value add in enabling people, processes and tools to work together effectively and efficiently over the entire life cycle of the project.
  • Well established and integrated workflows for multi discipline integration, which caters and allows for intense live collaboration during design.
  • Clear Levels of Design Development Progress are present in established workflows with clear indications of the said progress.
  • Clash detection is possible due to integrated model set up, and allows for quality control processes during design stage. This eliminates unnecessary re-work on site.
  • Regular reviews of the live collaborative design model with the Client and Project team, allows all parties to give input and be part of the design process and model development during the project.
