Autodesk Building Design Suite – Building Design Software for BIM and CAD

Autodesk Building Design Suite – Building Design Software for BIM and CAD

With a significant increase in the number of construction projects in Ireland over the past 6 months, more and more enquiries are coming to us about the Autodesk solution for BIM and information on Autodesk Revit and Navisworks. Here is a summary of the autodesk BIM solution that may be useful to anyone looking for information on the Autodesk building design suites. More details & overview videos can be found on our website

AUTODESK BIM – See what you can do!

Architect:

Design to your excellence

  • Work more successfully with tools created for architects
  • Design better-quality, more percise designs
  • Use BIM and CAD based workflows

Visualize to enhance collaboration & review design options

  • Create visualizations to better present design intent
  • Use presentation tools to evaluate options in context
  • Gain greater downstream visibility earlier in the process

Make better design decisions

  • Design more efficient buildings using energy analysis tools
  • Gain better awareness into constructability using 3-Diemensional models
  • Help solve clashes before construction begins

Contractor:

Visually explore project constructability

  • Determine project complexity, labor and materials scope
  • Aggregate data for whole project review
  • More effectively coordinate site and workflow planning

Improve cost reliability

  • Rapidly generate material takeoffs
  • Evaluate the cost of design alternatives
  • Maintain more accurate budgets

Better predict and communicate project outcomes

  • Simulate schedules and logistics in 4D
  • Quickly assess scope changes
  • Compare actual schedule to forecasts

Structural engineer:

Design more efficiently

  • Design with intelligent, information-rich models
  • Optimize outcomes by exploring design alternatives
  • Connect design intent with analysis and fabrication

Visualize to help inform your designs

  • More clearly communicate design intent
  • Perform more accurate simulation and analysis
  • Minimize waste and total embodied energy

Document with constructability in mind

  • Help resolve conflicts before construction
  • Share designs with detailers, fabricators, and contractors
  • Document more accurately-from design to fabrication

MEP engineer:

Create better MEP systems

  • Design more accurately with intelligent models
  • Design complex building systems with greater efficiency
  • Facilitate coordination of designs using 3D models

Visualize to gain better project insight

  • Communicate ideas with integrated visualization tools
  • Simulate early and often to better predict performance
  • Better predict project outcomes through visualization

Design and build more accurately

  • Create more coordinated construction documents
  • Help resolve conflicts before construction
  • Deliver documentation, models, and renderings
