How BIM Changes Everything

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that offers multiple opportunities to automate and better coordinate the construction documents and specifications, from a 3D computer model. BIM authoring software (Revit, Bentley, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks) allow multiple users (disciplines) to work simultaneously in the facility model file during the construction + design processes.

This collaborative workflow uses new tools for programming & project phasing, creating specifications & cost estimates, and prefabrication & commissioning documentation.

Learn how the BIM process is redefining

  1. the project workflow,
  2. team roles & responsibilities,
  3. marketing of services,
  4. contractual BIM deliverables defined by both private & public BIM mandates; with an ongoing requirement for training & professional development.

My First 5 Revit Family Manufacturer Content Websites

View Andersen Windows-Doors Revit Model Library - Archive
Andersen Windows – Revit models were my first exposure to a Building Product Manufacturer (BPM) supporting the Revit – BIM process.

View Andersen Windows-Doors Revit Model Library

For several years I implemented clients’ Autodesk ADT \ Autodesk Architectural Desktop — with almost no BPM support. Basically, we had to create all of our BPM content for Desktop…which limited our implementations.

When I installed Revit 4.0 in 2002 –and saw Andersen Windows Revit families, it grabbed my attention. A manufacturer supporting Revit!

The Andersen Window families shipped with Revit software and were included in the sample library.

Autodesk then moved the Andersen Revit families to what is currently the online Archived Revit Content Library. When Autodesk obtained  the Manufacturers’ Revit Library BIMWorld.com; they transitioned the site content into today’s Autodesk Seek.

As Revit software evolved –Autodesk Seek was incorporated into the Revit software; as a convenient BPM Search Engine to Find and Download BPM Revit models.

Revit Implementations Value BPM Model Content

Integrating BPM Revit content into our clients’ Revit implementations was an important cost saving process. We minimized our library modeling costs to setup our clients’ standard Revit library and kick-start their first “Revit pilot project”.

Looking back –Here are 5 BPMs that offered significant, pre-built Revit family content to kick-start my clients’ Revit implementations and library standards.

Building your BPM model library has become easier and less costly than it was only 5 years ago — as BPMs are stepping up to support the design + construction community’s major workflow process, BIM.

My \ Our thanks to these early innovators for seeing the time-saving value of providing their products in a Revit-BIM format.
