We provide a range of architectural CAD modelling services to our customers to aid the design, planning and visualisation phase of construction projects.
Our experienced team of modellers have created models for shopping centres, hospitals, airports, hotel complexes, transport infrastructure, residential areas and mixed-use sites. Our range of architectural 3D modelling services includes the following:
Revit BIM 3D Models
Using Autodesk Revit Architecture, we create intelligent Revit BIM models (Building Information Models) for a range of architectural projects. As a database-driven parametric modelling utility, Autodesk Revit offers a number of enhanced advantages to provide greater control and accuracy to the design stage of projects. Using BIM models ensures that any changes to schedules, plans, elevations, sections or the 3D model itself result in coordinated updates to all corresponding areas. This is referred to as ‘integrated bi-directional associativity’ by Autodesk.
Furthermore, Revit Architecture allows for a range of other benefits including material take-offs, interference checks and improved compatibility with other Autodesk visualisation tools, such as 3Ds Max.
Our Revit project experience includes developing construction drawing sets for leading homebuilders in the US, Australia and Canada; developing models, associated drawings, and schedules for multi-use buildings in the UK, the US and Australia, including high-rise structures; and creating Revit-based construction drawing sets for retail design updates.
Point Cloud 3D BIM Models
We take 3D laser scan data in the form of ‘point cloud’ data and use it to create accurate Revit BIM models for architects, retailers and general contractors. Typically we will create scan-to-BIM models for existing building where no accurate or up-to-date plans are in place. We will usually also model the proposed alterations (false ceiling and additional structural items) so that our customer has an accurate and updated model with which to progress their design.
3D CAD Building Models
We create building models using Autodesk Revit, ArchiCAD and AutoCAD Architecture for architects, consulting engineers, structural engineers, main contractors and subcontractors. Using 2D layout plans and elevations as a starting point, we create entire architectural and structural building models to exact standards and specifications. We also undertake to maintain the models for such projects throughout the duration of a project — from design through to installation/handover.
Google SketchUp Models
We provide a number of customers with Google SketchUp models for all stages of the design process. Our Google SketchUp modelling services are used by architects, developers and specialist users. SketchUp 3D models can be as simple or as detailed as required by the clients. These models have the added flexibility of being used in a number of other applications, including Revit, AutoCAD and other virtual software applications.
4D CAD Building Models
We create 3D models with the added element of time-based scheduling for main contractors and project managers. These models show the development of a model over the duration of a planned build and enable more effective resource and budget management.
3D CAD Component Modelling & Revit Family Modelling
We create 3D model libraries (using AutoCAD or Revit) for all equipment, fixtures, fittings and furniture within construction and engineering domains. Our Revit family modelling services are used by original equipment manufacturers as these same-class models include all parameters and constraints that can be modified as per requirements.
