Godden Sudik Architects Saves 4 to 6 hours on Up-front Design Work per Project with Custom Tool

Customer Challenge

Godden Sudik has 3 design studios within their firm, each with Revit licenses but different knowledge levels, requirements, and levels of usage. The existing restrictions created challenges and limited the enthusiasm of those studios to embrace the use of Revit to its fullest potential. They reached out to our team at Applied Software (ASTI) to find a solution.

Project Goals

Our goal was to develop a tool for Godden Sudik that could take a base Revit template and, on a per project basis, automate and customize the template to fit the unique needs of different studios.


We created the Template Formulator. The Template Formulator is powered by Autodesk Dynamo and works to optimize the standard Godden Sudik base template with customizable features for each studio and automate a significant number of preliminary project start-up tasks. The custom User Interface allows the tool to be run directly in the Revit environment without opening Dynamo. The UI includes a variety of pre-configured menus with inputs for each studio to adjust based on their project needs.

Business Outcome

The Template Formulator tool not only helped save 4 to 6 hours of up-front design work per project, but also standardized and streamlined processes. As a direct result, Godden Sudik has experienced greater utilization of their Autodesk Revit licenses within their employee base. Godden Sudik experienced an immediate return on their investment, including reduced project delivery times, more consistent standards, and greater Revit adoption.


After the success of phase one, Godden Sudik has a forthcoming second phase to this deliverable which will allow for additional customization and drawing automation with respect to building codes and code compliance, amongst other things.
