Revit for Restaurant Prototypes | Core Business-Design Values

Business and Design Value | Revit for Restaurant-Retail PrototypesRevit for Restaurant & Dining Prototype Buildings can deliver both business and design value — IF implemented correctly. While my Revit implementation clients have been Design and construction firms; several have been restaurant & dining chains.

Revit Implementation Puzzle – 5 Basic Planned Investments

A Strategic Assessment & Revit Implementation Plan; helped more than a dozen restaurant chains, review their potential ROI for transitioning to Revit-BIM processes.

drive-thru-open-right-arrowWhether their franchises were selling coffee, donuts, burgers or subs; their visitor traffic was  walk-in, drive-thru or both. While it was preferable to begin using Revit for new construction; the final Revit implementation plan needed to include renovation of existing buildings and rental spaces.

We demonstrated how visualization and information-rich Revit models; could assist restaurant chains to achieve these core business and design outcomes for:

1) providing better prototype visualization for franchisees, designers & construction teams,

2) expediting construction plan & site submittals with local agencies,

3) listing and costing equipment, fixture & furniture selections (real-time Revit scheduling) of prototype construction package,

4) visualizing & cost estimating prototype design-options for construction packages,

6) improving their staff training tools with 3D images of individual work spaces; within the team kitchen-storage space.

7) expediting a planned construction cycle to provide a faster ‘Grand Opening’ date for the chain and/or franchisee.

Obviously, Revit facility prototyping –offers many of the same value points for many other retail (non-restaurant) franchise facilities; when implemented correctly.

Excerpts:

Design-Bid-Build: 38% of architects and 22% of contractors find this to be the best system to reduce project cost.

RSMeans: 2014 Report Indicates 50% of US Projects over $10M use Design-Build

Design-Build: 43% of architects and 50% of contractors find this to be the best system to reduce project schedule, and a higher percentage of owners using this method report projects finishing ahead of schedule than with the other two systems.

Construction Management at Risk: A higher percentage of owners doing projects that employ this system find that their projects that employ this system find that their projects are under budget(33%) and 60% report being very satisfied with the projects they have conducted, which is at least 20 percentage points higher than those using design-bid-build or design-build.
