Autodesk BIM 360 Docs as Common Data Environment for Architects
LA Architect had embarked on Building Information Modelling since 2012 with the adoption of Autodesk Revit and Navisworks Manage. Since then they achieved BIM benefits such as perform design and drafting in one environment, obtained architectural design flexibility, reduced design and drafting errors and managed to increase productivity and save time. Despite successful implementation of BIM workflow with Revit and Navisworks Manage, they still have some challenges in BIM project management.
LA Architect explored Autodesk BIM 360 Docs as a solution to their project management and collaboration challenges. The implementation of BIM 360 Docs must have a positive impact to their projects, improve productivity and communication barriers among all project stakeholders while being easy to adopt. 3DTech was called in to demonstrate functionality of BIM 360 Docs and how it works as a Common Data Environment abiding to the PAS1192-2:2013 CDE Standards.
We ran a few series of discovery sessions with LA Architect to understand their desired output of Autodesk BIM 360 Docs implementation. Upon adoption of BIM 360 Docs, we conducted two training sessions with LA Architect internal users and consultants. With the training we ensured that all aspects of BIM 360 adoption are well understood and familiarized. Upon completion of training, we were in constant communication with LA Architect BIM Coordinator to assist shall any issues arises.
Our approach toward the BIM 360 Docs adoption strategy has assisted LA Architect to further define their own BIM 360 Docs process flow, complying to their projects stages. The implementation of BIM 360 has allowed LA Architect to reap the following benefits: 1. Easy collaboration between Revit users 2. Full understanding of the project development 3. Full control of reference material 4. All back up is saved 5. Non-technical users are always up to date 6. Faster and more controlled work
As a result of proper strategy of adoption focusing on people, process and technology, LA Architect was able to maximize the return on their Autodesk BIM 360 Docs investment and has since managed to complement their existing BIM workflows with a collaborative project ecosystem in Autodesk BIM 360 Docs.
