ARCHICAD and its “I” in BIM Powers IFC for Abramson Tieger Architects

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Trevor Abramson, FAIA, and Douglas Teiger, AIA, lead California-based Abramson Teiger Architects (ATA) and its team of dynamic architects and designers.  With over 200 built projects across North America, ATA’s passion for excellence has been recognized with over thirty design awards.  Their multi-faceted practice, initially focusing on single-family residences, now encompasses ecclesiastical commissions, educational facilities, creative offices, retail developments, and varied commercial buildings.  The firm seeks to balance practical needs and dramatic artistic expression while treating each project as an exercise in collaboration.

ATA has been using BIM on larger scale projects of late.  Specifically, the firm used the software on PLATFORM, a 220,000 SF mixed-use complex, and on a 92,000 square foot retail and creative office development, both located in the Culver City neighborhood of Los Angeles.


Winning with Open BIM

ATA begins the majority of their projects in ARCHICAD, especially the larger ones. Often, the firm encounters situations where a client requires construction documents created in Revit. Even in those cases, they choose to first work in ARCHICAD because they feel it is a better tool for conceptual design work, rendering, working with steel and most importantly, IFC and model coordination.
