This South Australian MEP contractor bought AGACAD’s Smart Hangers to do clash-free construction grade design work. They found the software not only does that extremely well, but also enables quick precision layout on site. Clients are happier and costs are lower with the elimination of a lot of rework.

Client Profile

Smith brothers Group is one of South Australia’s largest plumbing and pipeline contractors. Innovation is key in its resolve to be No. 1 for service. That’s why BIM technologies are at the heart of the group’s design and engineering work.

Business Need

New projects required Smith brothers Group to place seismic hangers on pipework with construction grade (LOD 400) detail. They needed to place complex equipment in very limited overhead spaces and ensure a clash-free model.

The solution had to be compatible with Autodesk® Revit® and support the incorporation of Trimble points for on-site positioning and layout. And the company always prefers innovative solutions that offer a competitive edge.

This Nordic engineering firm says AGACAD’s BIM software has brought big efficiency gains for its precast concrete and wood framing projects, helped it win new clients, and enabled the company to handle more complex projects.

Client Profile

JPS-Konsult AB, based in Vrigstad, Sweden, specializes in the design of precast concrete and wood-frame buildings, mainly for residential use.

Business Need

While upgrading itself from 2D to 3D design to be more modern and competitive in the market, JPS-Konsult ran into productivity issues with its new Autodesk® Revit® software. Revit required so much time-consuming manual work that the company was tempted to go back to AutoCAD®.

“We tried to make shop drawings with plain Revit, and soon realized that there had to be a better way,” recalls CEO Johannes Svensson.

So the firm began looking for ways to get all the great benefits of BIM for its precast concrete and timber projects but without having to waste so much valuable time. Specifically, it needed automated view layouts, dimensioning and material take-off, plus ways to quickly insert elements to achieve greater detailing. This functionality had to be easy to learn and use.

Svensson says he did a major search and concluded that AGACAD had the most powerful solutions for his needs. It’s also the only one with a software portfolio broad enough to support both wood and concrete projects.

It’s now possible to model your ventilated facade project completely in Revit, from start to finish. And not only that, but to do it efficiently. The purpose of this presentation is to show you how!

AGACAD has created new software for effectively designing of ventilated facades.

VENTILATED FACADES makes it quick and easy to design high-quality ventilated facades in Revit® with automated real-time updates for project changes. That ensures you’ll get high-quality framing models, including hangers, fixings, brackets, etc. You’ll get accurate bills of materials, shop and fabrication drawings, and accurate on-site assembly thanks to BIM-to-Field features.

You‘ll see in this webinar how our new solution successfully models ventilated facades. We’ll go through the process of creating ventilated wall layers, modifying and updating frames, and adding fixings, hangers, and fasteners. Come and see how you can model ventilated facades in no time!
