The construction industry's push towards digital is happening, with or without you. And if you're a contractor, you know how vital it is to embrace digital tools, and BIM is no exception. If you want to thrive in construction's digital future, you need BIM. So the big question is, should you outsource your BIM work to a dedicated team of BIM experts or build an in-house team? Shft takes the headache out of helping contractors, specialist trades, and asset owners achieve their digital goals and meet new digital responsibilities without having to do it themselves.

Your BIM Partners. Shft is the dedicated team you need to get BIM done.

We know what it feels like to have to deliver BIM but not have the technical skills to get it done.

BIM can feel daunting.

If you’ve got to deliver it for a project, there’s two options: take on the stress of learning the complicated tech and processes yourself, or find a trusted partner that can do a fantastic job for you.
We’d love to become your trusted BIM partner.

Thing is, we get it. As the husband-and-wife team behind Shft, architecture has been our passion for as long as we can remember.

We started practicing as architects in our home country of South Africa in 2010, back when BIM wasn’t even a thing. Later, having now moved to the UK, we came to realise the incredible impact BIM was having on the sector. Inspired by the impact we knew could have, we chose to specialise in BIM in 2018.

Our Managing Director and Co-founder Michelle, says "To me, there is no better place to be than at the fore of the AEC industry’s push towards digitisation. And that is exactly where we are thanks to BIM. It is fascinating to watch the rapid developments that keep an ancient industry so current. Best of all, BIM helps us deliver next-level results for our customers in the construction sector, so they’re always ahead of the game."

Customer sharing positive experience with Shft’s BIM services. Jacques, our Operations Director and Co-founder at Shft, says "I love the real-life jigsaw puzzles that BIM helps me solve. There is something so rewarding about anticipating and preventing problems months before they occur on-site, which ultimately saves our customers both time and money. I get to craft beautifully designed, functional spaces every day, and that is a dream come true.”

Our Values

  1. Courage

    We act intelligently and thoughtfully in the face of fear. We address our fears by gathering enough knowledge, building faith, and taking swift action. We see courage as a competitive advantage.

  2. Willing

    We draw upon willingness, commitment, and a healthy dose of determination to power through unforeseen obstacles on the quest for our desired outcome. Once a decision has been made, we will commit, grit it out, and will things through to make it happen.

  3. Optimistic

    We are positive in everything we do. We see risks as opportunities to gain, problems as opportunities to learn and grow, and challenges as resistance pushing us to the next place.

  4. Responsiveness

    It’s not about the speed at which we get things done but rather our ability to be nimble, make quick and effective decisions, and provide our customers with flexibility because we are less constrained.
