Multiple drafter Teamwork capability. 2D Autocad drawing, survey data, sketch up model conversion services to Archicad.
Building Information Modelling ( Drafting ) is becoming increasingly vital for modern construction projects. Not only does it provide a digital representation of a building project, it also facilitates greater levels of collaboration and interoperability within the design environment.
Archicad Team delivers consultancy, detailing and Building Information Modelling on a diverse range of new projects and upgrades or expansions to existing facilities.
We provide clients with a dedicated, reliable and proven team for every project regardless of complexity or scale. We promote early engagement to improved efficiencies and encourages a common viewing platform through its data rich 3D BIM model. Working closely with our clients, we bring to the project a wealth of experience in projects through our talented and energetic team. Combined with our proven processes and our integrated project management systems, we can deliver the highest possible product and tailor a flexible solution that caters to the client’s needs.
At Archicad Team, we provide building information modelling, drafting services (or BIM services as they commonly known) using Graphisoft Archicad BIM application which allows changes in one view/area to be replicated automatically in all other views/areas where the changed item appears (including layouts, elevations, schedules or the 3D model itself).
We currently use 3D BIM modelling application for the following project and customer types:
BIM for Retail – We create Archicad BIM models that are used to create detailed plans, sections and elevations as well as accurate equipment and fixture schedules.
BIM Models from Surveys data – We create 3D architectural models from survey data. We already work with a number of developers, contractors and retailers to create accurate models of existing sites. As well as creation of the 3D model in Archicad from survey data, we model any building alterations and changes from architectural and structural drawings, such as false ceiling and additional structural elements.
BIM for Homebuilders – We create construction drawing sets directly from BIM models created for each house as a part of our residential BIM modeling services. As well as accurate schedules, a full set of drawings required by construction teams is created from the Archicad BIM models.
BIM for Architects – We create models during the design development, tender and construction stages of architectural design projects. As well as creation of clash free models with accurate building materials, we create detailed construction schedules from the models.
One of the key differences between modern BIM technology and traditional software is that BIM software is developed for the design of buildings and their components. The objects created within BIM models represent actual elements within a construction project and therefore this information becomes more useful to designers, installers and cost consultants.
Archicad Team’s goal for all projects is to produce quality deliverables that meets the client’s expectations. To achieve this we develop a plan that ensures the 3D modelling, 2D drawings and electronic data reflects the clients and projects requirements. BIM Drafting Services strategic approach aligns the projects scope, cost and schedule with the client’s to achieve project success.
2D Autocad drawing conversion services to Archicad BIM
Oursource conversion of 2D Autocad drawing or hand made sketches to Archicad BIM.
Drafters will convert sketches precisely, dimensionally accurate according to your specific requirements ( dwg to pln, pdf to pln ). Technicians will help you if you need to draft details, set up schedules, render interior or exterior scenes (artlantis, maxwell) etc.
We provide architectural bim services. We can convert a sketch, a picture, or an existing 2D drawing to a 3D Archicad BIM model according to your needs. Our draughtsman services will help to present your concept quickly and easily. Using our Archicad 3D BIM model you will be able to present every aspect of the project in details. We can develop your design idea into a concrete proposal, which would fully meet your requirements of design and technology.
Your 2D CAD files can easily be modeled due to its interface are interoperable already to any 3D software. The 2D CAD file will easily serve as reference. We trace it, reconstruct it in the virtual environment using Building Information Modeling software. Engineers can let their HVAC, MEP drawings incorporate into the BIM model. We transform the 2D drawings into a fully routed 3D model.
We work with all versions of Archicad files. We can output file format that you need – pln, pla, dwg or just plain simple pdf.
SketchUp model conversion services to Archicad BIM
Provide us with your SketchUp or Autocad files and we will be able to use it in Building Information Modeling software as a reference file. We will trace and reconstruct your model in the virtual environment using Archicad software.
While converting we can use composites, BIM objects, place aditional anotation and labling. SketchUp model or Autocad drawings will be translated to archicad from suitable elements and the most effective archicad modeling methods will be used for their creation. No aditional ajustment of a model will be needed. No plugin or converter can offer such convertion quality as a qualified drafter.
Your sketch model will converted to BIM model and BIMx file can be generated to explore model on your Windows or Mac PC or on iPhone/iPad without any CAD software installed.
Survey data conversion services to Archicad BIM model
Outsource conversion services to Archicad BIM, structures or terrain models from survey data.
Technicians will create accurate Archicad models of existing buildings. This process is called an existing conditions survey (abbreviated: ECS). The structure could be a building, home, stadium, warehouse, or similar.
We predicted that survey information in a 3D Archicad format will come to replace traditional 2d survey information. The main advantage that a Archicad survey offers is that it provides a much more detailed set of survey data which is already in 3D. In the past if a firm wanted to build a BIM model of an existing building they would need to use existing 2d drawings. These 2D plans miss off lots of 3D data that is essential in a BIM model.
For example a 2D survey only requires the internal measurements of a room to draw it in 2D. This is not enough information for a BIM survey. In BIM software a wall cannot be just a straight line it has to have a thickness. This is the fundamental difference with a Archicad survey, you move from a 2d line drawing to an intelligent model where each item is created from a family with its own specific properties.
We can provide ECSs for architects, building owners/managers, engineers, homeowners, interior designers, and real estate professionals. The drawing types that my clients typically request are: floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, building exterior and interior elevations, and building cross sections.
We work with all versions of Archicad files and we can output file format that you need – pln, pla, dwg or just plain simple pdf.
Custom Archicad objects
Oursource creation of custom Archicad objects.
Our drafters and technicians provide custom Archicad objects model service for manufacturers, designers.
Due to the lack of manufacturers Archicad BIM objects it is hard for architects to really integrate their products into the design selection process.
We can help to solve that problem, we can develop qualitative Archicad BIM objects from manufacturers, give the architect all visuals, variations, materials, products data, information at their fingertips – easily accessible. It means the product placement that can show qualities and functions of the particular product and improve the way the architect and designers can communicate and specify why certain products must be used to get the required quality and functional aspects of the design. We create Archicad BIM objects based on real products.
We work with materials received from products manufacturers to build the digital products as close to the physical ones as possible.
We can provide multiple drafters ( technicians ) with Archicad or Autocad skills. Group up to 8 darfters can be formed for cad drafting.
Archicad team offers outsource drafting solution for companies that require more than a single drafter. We can form drafting units up to eight drafters to develop your project. Such drafting units offer work coordination, effectiveness, flexibility .
Coordination is achieved because drafters work in the same office space by a supervision of a project drafting manager,
Effectiveness of work flow is achieved by a number of drafters that work in our company because depending on your project needs we will be able to assign drafters with skills that suit best your assignments.
Flexibility is achieved because we can adjust drafter number depending on work load. If some unexpected circumstances come up to one of a drafter we will have a possibility to substitute him with another team member. Such approach allows us to work on a big and complex projects and to meet deadlines on time.
By using Skype or any other online meeting solution you will be able to directly communicate with your drafting unit on daily basis to keep up with the drafting progress. Use archicadteam.com to expand your posibilities.
We provide an up-front quotation on the complete project so you’ll know the total cost without any surprises. If the project is open-ended then the standard hourly rate will apply. Either way, you are in control of the cost up-front, so no surprises.
