Considering your career prospects in 2019? Interested in accelerating your career? Here’s my top UK Digital Construction companies you should be keeping your eye on!


Autodesk are the major driving force behind the digital transformation of the AEC sectors. They continue to operate at the bleeding edge of technology innovation for artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), BIM applications, automation and all kinds of spectacular technology.

They’re also extremely active with regards to mergers and acquisitions… if you can’t beat them, join them, I guess! PlanGrid are amongst a series of companies which have recently joined the Autodesk family and have wasted no time recruiting in the likes of Australia, the UK and USA.

Bentley Systems are another technology giant, with a slightly more varied focus on the AEC and heavy industries. They have sales and technical vacancies across the world and seek civil and structural engineers to make the leap into the digital world.

They are continuously one of the most attractive employers in Digital Construction thanks to their exclusive and unique benefits package, specialised software and general popularity amongst engineering professionals. Not to mention their rapid progressions framework for new employees!

The Nemetschek Group just continue to grow and disrupt the major Digital Construction companies. AllPlan, Vectorworks and Scia are a small group of Nemetschek’s dynamic portfolio of niche software which is impacting the traditional AEC software environment.

Employees can leverage the relationships with other Nemetschek brands to give their customers access to the full construction lifecycle. They too are seeking Civil and Structural engineers to utilise their industry experiences in software and relate to a growing customer base.

Procore are the Google of the Digital Construction world! The Californian based start-up boasts an incredible growth story, software which has redefined an industry, a headquarters on a cliff-edge and a truly unique company culture… what more could you ask for?

Their new London office is a huge statement of intent as they scale their oversea business operations to rival Digital Construction’s big guns. They’re certainly my “one-to-watch” for the remainder of 2019 and beyond!

Viewpoint appear to have come out of their recent partnership with Trimble stronger, having reported their most successful quarters to date. They have journeyed to the very pinnacle of their software specialism and are recruiting in Portland, Newcastle and Australia.

If working with a reputable and advanced solution wasn’t enough, Viewpoint’s recent partnership with global company Trimble makes their employment offering extremely credible as they collaborate to drive a “new era” for the global construction sector.
