Clark Design Group Uses ARCHICAD to Speed Up Approvals

Participatory Planning

The clever architects at Clark Design Group have come up with a way to plan their projects, using ARCHICAD, that helps to simplify the lengthy planning and design period of a project before creating construction documents. Richard Rinehart calls the process “participatory planning.” It involves designing in real-time in front of the client – on the entire scope of projects taken on by the firm, industrial, medical, institutional and has helped the firm become more efficient and productive.

ARCHICAD“When we deal with large clients and have to develop a plan for the MEP or piping and duct work, we use ARCHICAD. The software lets us move things around, make decisions quickly and get moving forward. On a recent 60K square foot pilot plant, we cut down what would have been a six to eight month approval process to just two weeks.”

Relying heavily on the morph tool and being able to show exactly what would happen if an element of the building were, say, to move 40 feet to one direction, everyone looking at the model has an immediate understanding of whether that would work or not.
