Leveraging Revit models to assist with quantity takeoff [QTO] for project estimating

Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT) had worked with us to transition to Revit and BIM workflows, and wanted to begin leveraging their Revit models to assist with quantity takeoff (QTO) for project estimating. COPT joked that they wanted a ‘magic button’ to complete what they needed done, and our team built a ‘magic button’ in Dynamo. With one-click it would ask the designer where they wanted their file to be placed and automatically generate the file with all the required data for the estimators. Through testing and working with COPT, we were able to assist with workflow changes, solve additional challenges and give the customer the ‘magic button’ they were looking for.

Connecting AutoCAD and Revit with Space Management

CADD and FM:Systems partnered to provide space management capabilities to a large federal government agency by implementing an FM:Systems’ Integrated Workplace Management Software (Space Management Module) solution. This government agency has more than 50,000 employees and 5 million square feet of real estate. CADD assisted with drawing and model preparations as well as the installation and setup of the modules. The FM:Interact solution is providing bi-directional integration with the organization’s AutoCAD drawings and Revit models, allowing the agency to support their space management goals with AutoCAD and Revit across the entire portfolio. Moving forward, every space is accountable, and the one centralized location makes it possible for facility professionals, department liaisons and executive management to have visibility into space and occupancy.

Implementation and Ongoing Training and Maintenance

CADD and FM:Systems partnered to consult for an independent agency of the federal government. FM:Systems provided the software technology consisting of the Integrated Workplace Management Software with the following modules: Space Management, Asset Management, Move Management and Real Estate. In the following years they have purchased Mobile, Space Reservation and Facility Maintenance. CADD ensured that the customer was successful by providing the CAD and implementation services, installation and deployment, and training. The CADD consulting team continues to provide ongoing assistance of these modules.

Drawing Scanning and HR Data Integration

CADD worked with a large biopharmaceutical company who had purchased FM:Interact and planned on implementing the Space Management, Move Management, and Strategic Planning modules. The CADD consulting team then worked with the team throughout the implementation and additional provided services including scanning of drawings, review and configuration of human resource data integration to increase efficiency.
