AGA CAD Ltd. is pleased to announce the strategic partnership between Arup, the global engineering and design firm and AGA CAD, a developer of BIM solutions and Revit extensions under the tools4revit trademark. Arup employees are driven to find a better way to work and use the best design software. This month Arup has purchased AGA CAD network licenses in bulk and started implementing them throughout the entire company.
“As we are a multi-discipline design practice, the Revit suite has been a natural fit for our Buildings practice and we have standardised this over the past few years. The addition of the tools4revit suite from AGA CAD has helped us fill in the gaps that are in the software when applied to our design methodology“, says Carl Collins, CAD Manager at Arup Associates, the unified design group within Arup.
Arup has been looking for productivity-boosting BIM solutions for a long time. Carl Collins, Arup CAD Manager, explains “We looked at various solutions, from interacting directly with Autodesk, to authoring our own tools in-house, both of which have improved our efficiency and the base product. But the tools4revit suite has added many of the tools that we need, at a fraction of the cost of writing them internally and with a speed of response that very large organisations like Autodesk could not achieve“.
