PALO ALTO, CALIF. — Design professionals in the architecture, engineering and construction industries will be able to save time, improve collaboration and reduce review cycles using the industry’s first web-ready large-format printing solution — now available from HP.
KENNESAW, GA. — Tekla and Autodesk work together to enable better compatibility between Tekla and Autodesk's respective building information modeling (BIM) software platforms. As a first step, the companies have collaborated to introduce new features that allow for the exchange of structural data between Revit and Tekla software.
Held in San Francisco April 27-28, thought leaders from all over the world will come together to share best practices, stories, and ideas about how they organize information and manage knowledge in their firms. Click here for more information.
THE NETHERLANDS — Cadac Organice BV has introduced Cadac Organice Gatekeeper. Cadac Organice Gatekeeper helps companies to define and enforce design standards on AutoCAD drawings and saves substantial time and effort in the design and control process.
ATLANTA — The Beck Group showcased its focus on BIM during a tour of Georgia Tech’s Hinman Research Building, which is under renovation. The historic building will house Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture.
REDLANDS, CALIF. — As facilities owners and operators look to create buildings that are safe, secure, energy efficient, and optimally operated, they are embracing geographic information system (GIS) technology. This is leading many who have invested in building information modeling (BIM) to question whether BIM and GIS can be used together. Shelli Stockton, facilities management industry manager for Esri, addressed this question at the online Spatial Roundtable.
Win More Work with Innovative Approaches to Project Proposals Thursday, June 27th, 2013
How can you make your project proposals stand out in order to win work without losing time and money?
In this presentation, you’ll learn about new ways to quickly create more realistic proposals of design alternatives that demonstrate a better understanding of project needs, more clearly explain project designs, and help you win work.
Get to 30% Design Faster Thursday, August 8th, 2013
Once you win an infrastructure project, how does your team provide owners, review agencies, clients and other stakeholders with a more solid understanding of your design intent?
This webcast presentation will present innovative approaches that show how you can easily combine 2D CAD, GIS, raster, and 3D models, enabling you to accelerate your infrastructure design process. It will also show how you can easily use rich visualizations to validate design decisions faster.
Get to “Yes” Faster with Agency and Community Stakeholders Thursday, September 12th, 2013
Review agencies need to understand and approve projects before they can be built, but the approval process is often slow and linear. Non-technical public stakeholders, such as surrounding residents and business owners, struggle understanding 2D plans and their confusion can lead to expensive roadblocks.
Learn how you can use compelling simulations and animated 3D visualizations to better communicate project alternatives and community impact in a format that is more interactive and easily understood by agencies and non-technical audiences alike.
