For years 3D coordination was the province of Autodesk Navisworks for AEC professionals. It still is in some cases but new workflows and collaboration platforms to make communication easier are emerging. Some will still involve Navisworks to some extent as it is still one of the few tools that can perform clash detection, but these more intensive collaboration tools will make the process more productive. The tools not only save time, but they also have the ability to provide a new level of metrics and data to support analytics and proof of value. Not only are they up to the task of quantifying the effectiveness of the process, but they also handle issue assignments, status changes, automated issue creation, and much more.
VIATechnik is a digital transformation leader in the AEC industry. Our firm seeks to transform the analog world of design and construction into a digital platform, enabling efficient design, industrialized construction, and a digital real estate service model. We are transforming the built environment by capitalizing on digital twin technology, by using real world data to create simulations that can predict how a product or process will perform.
Our digital transformation services include BIM, computational BIM, virtual reality and augmented reality, prefabrication, digital construction management, 4D, and software development. We’ve worked on over 2,000 projects globally, with the largest ones including Apple’s new headquarters, the Tesla Gigafactory, LaGuardia Airport, Hudson Yards, the Atlanta Falcons Stadium, and Chase Arena.
