ARCHICAD on Archispeak Podcast

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

archispeak+logo+512The power of the podcast is well-documented. At their origination, podcasts – or “audio blogging” as the practice was first named – were a handy way to share information, though at first they did not enjoy widespread adoption. So much has changed since the. By the year 2004, broadband internet access and portable audio devices helped podcasts transition from those early days, through a trendy buzz word type of category to the distribution method it is today. Currently more than 115-thousand English-speaking podcasts exist, contributing to an ever louder online volume.

The Archispeak Podcast is one podcast I’d recommend checking out. The trio of hosts; Evan Troxel, Neal Pann, and Cormac Phalen get together regularly to have casual conversations about all things architecture. What I like about their style is they celebrate the triumphs and highlight successes AND are unafraid to point out failures or situations where they think the proverbial bar was missed.

Look no further than Seattle-based, Rutledge Maul Architects (RMA). This award-winning powerhouse firm has been churning out projects in ARCHICAD since the early 90’s. One of the keys to their success has been leveraging small teams on large projects nimbly and efficiently.  RMA performs feasibility and site-selection analysis, as well as master planning for commercial, multifamily, residential, and institutional facilities. One look at the RMA project portfolio and you’ll see a range of upscale corporate buildings to custom homes with a wide range of budgets and architectural taste.


Making Dreams a Reality with ARCHICAD

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Settlers Ridge ExtToronto-based, Discovery Dream Homes, creates custom log and timber frame homes using ARCHICAD. At any given time, some 40 projects are in progress – all managed and built in ARCHICAD.

A model home just outside the city shows potential clients what Discovery Dream Homes can create – but the team relies heavily on creating 3D presentations in ARCHICAD and shares them via the award-winning presentation app, BIMx.

“We use BIMx for every project we do. It had a profound impact on our presentation style from the moment it was introduced to us,” explained Shawn Hunter. “When people are trying to decide whether to hire us or not, BIMx tips the scales in our favor every time.”
