Cloud Based Software

Cloud-Based Software

h2x is cloud-based, so you are no longer tethered to a single location.

Design to Standards

Design to Standards

You are in control of the sizing parameters, and h2x completes all of the calculations.

Precise and Accurate Detail

Precise and Accurate Detail

There is no human error, no 'rule of thumb' and no confusion between standards - just transparent, compliant and accurate engineering.

Effortless Redesigning

Effortless Redesigning

When it comes to traditional methods, any changes to the architectural layout means restarting the design process.

Review Sharing

Review Sharing

Instantly share results, internally or externally, for review and comments.

Cost Estimation

CASE STUDIES

Greengate, UK

"I would estimate over the length of this project, I have spent 50% less time designing than I would on our previous software.

The ability to output the design straight into Revit assisted clash detection and coordination."

CASE STUDIES

Large Domestic Renovation, UK

"Pipe sizing is a dream with h2x being able to quickly change pipe types from copper to MLCP.

Being able to set a velocity limit of 1 means we have all the pipe sizes calculated with correct flow rates and velocity.

h2x takes away the worry of a miscalculation or undersizing of pipe work potential."
