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.

Energy Efficient Home in Mendham, NJ Designed in ArchiCAD

Monday, November 17th, 2014

A picturesque piece of land nestled in the town of Mendham, New Jersey stretched for seven acres. Architect Andrew Passacantando, AIA was tasked with renovating the existing property to meet the needs of his client. When the project first began, Passacantando says he investigated renovating the existing house, but after a walk-through of the property, decided it would be best to start over.

ArchiCAD BIMAfter the home was torn down, he used ArchiCAD to create a different configuration for the home, making the building much taller. The home features double-walled construction as well as other energy efficient design aspects such as geo-thermal wells, low voltage lighting and Marvin windows. It became a much larger home, but one that uses little energy.  Passacantando says he relied heavily on ArchiCAD software as a design tool to create the initial concept for the home.

“When we started out – at first glance, we had a simple renovation on our hands. It soon transitioned into a rather complicated project. I was again reminded of how valuable BIM is to me as an architect, and I stress this to anyone considering making the transition to using BIM. By the time we were actually building the home, we were building it for the second time, and as a result,  this house went up without a single hiccup.”
