Applied Software Team Taps Autodesk's Portfolio of Tools in BIM BAM BOOM! Technology Competition

Company Showcases Expert Capabilities in Building Information Modeling Solutions

ATLANTA, Nov. 5, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  A team of experts from Applied Software, a premier, national professional services firm and leading Building Information Modeling ( BIM) solutions provider, demonstrated the power of Autodesk during BIM BAM BOOM!, a technology competition sponsored by the Orlando Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Held at the Valencia College West Campus to celebrate Architecture Month, the event drew expert teams from Applied Software, Graphisoft ArchiCAD and Nemetschek Vectorworks. Teams competed by working with BIM, presenting their software capabilities in response to a design problem based on a historic church project in Ronchamp, France.

The Applied Software team of experienced professionals employed Autodesk's vast portfolio of tools, including Autodesk ® FormIt® for conceptual design; Autodesk 360® for collaboration, storage, sharing and design discussions; and Autodesk® Revit® for the bulk of the modeling.

In less than 90 minutes, the team developed an organic-shaped building with warped walls and curved roofs on the actual site; modeled the interior and exterior; completed renderings in the cloud; added contours and landscaping; completed lighting analysis and sun studies; developed a project lifecycle analysis and its environmental impact; compared energy analysis with different design iterations; and created electrical and ductwork layouts with panel schedules.  Autodesk Revit's easy access to built-in tools allowed the team to use a hand-drawn look for schedules, materials, textures and "sketchy lines."

In addition, the Applied Software team produced clash detection reports to analyze the design immediately and fix errors. The team showed how the model can be moved into Navisworks to execute many construction functions. The walk-through created by the Revit tools allowed the audience to see the final product and allowed the Applied Software team to tell the story effectively.

From conceptual design to construction documents, the Autodesk workflow proved to be a purpose-built product for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) space.

"This event offers an incredible opportunity to showcase the benefits that BIM can bring to the entire design community," said Richard Burroughs, president of Applied Software. "Our team did a tremendous job demonstrating the expertise and technology solutions that Autodesk can bring to any architectural project. At Applied Software, we pride ourselves on preparation, collaboration and providing business solutions to our clients, and we hope that came through during this event."
