Highly Detailed ArchiCAD Models and Their Benefits

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Discover the Benefits of a Complete and Detailed Model

GRAPHISOFT North America proudly announces a webinar scheduled for February 26, 2015 featuring work by Asheville, NC based Griffin Architects, PA. An ArchiCAD firm since 1998, Griffin Architects focuses on highly detailed high end custom residential and commercial projects, using ArchiCAD to model every aspect of the design process. From the beginning schematics of a project’s early phases to adding details as design ideas are finalized and creating construction documents, the firm relies on ArchiCAD to express their ideas, communicate with their clients through an efficient and productive workflow.ArchicAD

“We see ArchiCAD as the tool for expressing our ideas,” said Greg Lambert, Griffin Architect Project Manager. “Being able to model it, which is in essence virtually building it, you can accurately judge your idea and either put it into the finished design or come up with a new idea.”

The focus of this webinar will center on a project currently on the boards for the firm now, a 15,000 square foot home, new construction. During this webinar, attendees will learn how:

  • Fully modeling for client approval saved time
  • Visualizing and showing 3D enhanced communication of design intent
  • Creating a detailed model that becomes the plan
  • Producing interior elevations and detailed sections quickly and directly from the model
  • Reducing 2D work

Attendees will also hear from team members on the scalability of this process.

“Whether it is a small or large home or building, this process works on any scale. The time you spend modeling becomes the documents you need in the end, the model becomes the way in which you communicate with your client and the contractor, the model is the virtual building – ArchiCAD does it all,” Lambert added.ArchiCAD

Get the most out of your model, no matter the project size by signing up for this webinar. Scheduled for February 26th, 2015 from 2p-3p.

designLab Looks to Area’s Industrial Heritage to Create Dance and Visual Arts Center

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

The article below first appeared in the February issue of Metal Architecture.

Steeling Inspiration from Industrial Heritage

The designLab team in Boston, MA began work to design a new Dance and Visual Arts Center at Seton Hill University project in Greenberg, Pennsylvania in the summer of 2012. The design intends to embody the industrial heritage of its location in a modern and attractive manner, through exposed steel and minimal finishes. designLab focused in on the university’s goal to create a building that was both open and inviting to students and faculty as well as the community of Greensburg. It will house areas for students and community members to study and apply principles of dance, sculpture, graphic design, metal-smithing, clay works, photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Welding facilities and a foundry or metal casting area also make up the various studios. The center will provide space for art therapy and education studios as well as the Harlan Gallery to display student works and installations.

Morelli Clinard Residential Designs Enjoys Design Freedom with ArchiCAD

Friday, January 16th, 2015

ArchiCAD 16 powered the design of the Shadetree Apartment complex located in the heart of South Carolina’s Johns Island. Morelli Clinard Residential Designs (MCRD) managed the design of the complex, made up of more than 136 units of one, two and three bedroom apartments by taking full advantage of the module feature in ArchiCAD.

ArchiCAD BIM MCRD“With a project of this size, updating one wall throughout the entire building can be tedious and time-consuming. By maximizing our productivity with ArchiCAD, we save time and of course, money for our client.”

The project is currently under construction with a summer 2015 completion date. The firm has experience designing and managing multi-unit residences through the module feature in ArchiCAD. On a recent town home project in Charlotte, NC the team worked on a 107 unit complex that involved eight different designs within the building. Once again being able to update a large project with single edits proved valuable.

You’ll discover that BIM is an affordable, effective and efficient tool for communicating ideas, analyzing and evaluating space, and helping to forecast the performance of a finished building.

At the end of the session, attendees will earn .1 CEU and know how to:

  • Create custom objects using the Morph Tool
  •  Easily share files on mobile devices, with clients
