Improving Efficiency

For residential designers using Revit

Revit is the most common BIM platform in the market today. In Revit, elements - such as doors, windows, and walls - are designed in 3D and incorporate data attributes. Because elements in Revit are intelligent, parametric and related to each other within the 3D model, changes made to one element automatically update all related model elements, schedules, views, and sheets. For a residential designer using Vision REZ for Revit, this means their changes are made all at once, and are automatically pushed through to CD’s, renderings, and quantity takeoffs, saving them valuable time. VisionREZ allows you to model designs with precision, optimize performance, and collaborate more effectively.

Improve Accuracy

Model-sharing means the elimination of duplication errors

In Revit, all elements in a home design are modeled and shared across functions and organizations. Even external partners working on the same model benefit from the improved accuracy and time savings that avoiding duplication brings. Working from a single model also avoids version control issues, since most work is updated in real-time. Quantity takeoffs, which can be virtually automated to associate with elements listed in the Bill of Materials (BOM), are also done in real-time, avoiding duplicate counts.

Improving Visibility

Improve collaboration between builders, engineers and component manufacturers

Revit is the industry standard BIM technology. It features a robust API and commands significant developer market share. Developers flock to systems with great market share to increase their potential for market penetration. Standardized platforms increase collaboration, because Revit models and file formats can be shared among more stakeholders.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the process of standardizing, organizing and sharing project information from design to construction, allowing all functions and disciplines to collaborate on a universal platform. BIM uses 3D information models to maintain consistent and coordinated planning, design, construction and operational data.

BIM is redefining productivity in construction, and represents the “next generation” in residential construction design. Revit is the most widely used BIM technology, but was specific to commercial construction. By working with the technlogy desired by most designers and automating the features residential builders most frequently use, the introduction of VisionREZ has made Revit simple for residential contruction use.

How does BIM change the process?

The traditional construction process is burdened with waste and inefficiencies. Prior to BIM, each shareholder in the process created and maintained their own project data. This data was not shared in real time, which led to waste, detail duplication, errors and version control issues.

BIM creates a platform for collaboration and sharing. It allows all disciplines and trades to collaborate on the same 3D building information model. This impacts the entire construction value chain.

  • Architects/ Engineers – Collaborate on a shared model, improving both accuracy and efficiency
  • Builders – Virtual design reduces waste and creates general efficiency gains
  • Product Manufacturers – Creating model families of their products makes it easier for architects and engineers to include their products in the model
  • Owner – home owner benefits include higher quality construction and a better understanding of their project through visual renderings
