Opus is celebrating a winning night at the 10th Celebrating Construction in South Yorkshire Awards, which took place last Friday to acknowledge quality and excellence across the region's construction industry.
The unpredictable nature of natural disasters requires the engineering community to be immediately thrown into shaping the future of the built environment, and the community which inhabits it. Since September 2010, the South Island of New Zealand has been impacted by a series of significant earthquakes and aftershocks. The most notable of these were the February 2011 and November 2016 events. In general, key learnings from the 2011 event have been applied to the 2016 event. This resulted in significantly improved engineering response, at organisational, technical and operational levels.
Opus awarded first New Zealand BRE Global certification for Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2
Opus International Consultants has been named as the first company in New Zealand to be awarded BRE’s highly sought-after Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2 certification for three of its New Zealand offices.
Opus International Consultants Limited (Opus) has today agreed with WSP NZ Acquisition Limited (WSP) a variation of WSP’s takeover offer in respect of Opus shares.
The inspiration to provide project-based learning and encourage the next generation of built environment professionals has seen us paired up with The King Ecgbert School in Sheffield as part of the accredited learning programme, Design Engineer Construct (DEC) and supported by The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors.
As part of the programme, Manufacturer Topcon has loaned surveying kits to schools containing the equipment and computer software which has allowed Year 12 students to experience the basics of land surveying from our Surveyor, Steven Pearson. Activities, such as surveying a classroom block, working with levelling equipment and producing sketch maps provided plenty of hands-on opportunity.
Students weren’t the only ones to gain an introduction to surveying, with teachers also provided with basic knowledge to continue to confidently support students back in the classroom, such as importing data and developing more employability skills.
Opus International Consultants has today received notification from WSP NZ Acquisition Limited (WSP) that it has despatched its takeover offer document to Opus shareholders.
Half-Year results announced today show Opus International Consultants’ performance continues to improve.
Opus international Consultants Limited (Opus) today received a takeover notice under the Takeovers Code from WSP NZ Acquisition Limited (WSP), a wholly-owned subsidiary of WSP Global Inc.
Opus International Consultants’ (Opus) involvement in STEM continues with pace, with an initiative with Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) helping a group of A-Level students achieve The British Science Associations’ Gold Crest Award. The work supports our overarching aim to engage young people with engineering and its wider opportunities.
When many engineers hear the term “data management”, they immediately envisage a collaboration site or a proprietary database or even BIM – at a basic level, data management is the approach which an organisation uses to coordinate and improve its knowledge.
