Hlevel Architects Finds Efficiency After Switching to ARCHICAD

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Transitioning from AutoCAD to ARCHICAD

Things changed in January of 2015 for the team at Hlevel Architects. The team made the transition from AutoCAD to ARCHICAD. The growing firm, which specializes in both residential and commercial projects recently completed several projects with ARCHICAD.

Although still new to the software, relatively speaking, the team at Hlevel has come to know that that transition was worth the effort. Firm principle, Michaela Reiterer Henning explains, “After having used ARCHICAD for residential, interior commercial and renovation projects, we now truly understand the potential of the software. We are happy that we have moved toward using such a powerful design tool that helps us collaborate with clients, consultants and contractors.”

ARCHICAD Hlevel BIMOne such project – a 4,500 square foot, two story residential (single family) home provided a chance for the team at Hlevel to experience firsthand how ARCHICAD can assist in designing and creating the model. In a similar way, the benefits of ARCHICAD became apparent to the team as they worked on a multi-family dwelling – which amounted to a tenant improvement project and required heavy interior work.

“On the tenant improvement project, we were able to use ARCHICAD to create the images and sections all the way through to the cabinetry. We found it beneficial to save the interiors in the model and make shop drawings for those details. We saved loads of time because of all the detailing we created. Equally beneficial was the visualization in ARCHICAD as we created the dormers in the single family home. In AutoCAD, it would have been a very complicated process, because the ceiling heights change.”

BIM: More than a Buzzword at 2015 Interior Design Show

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

The dates are set for the Interior Design Show in Canada. Now in its 17th year, the show brings together some of the leading brands, innovative speakers and promising local talent to spotlight trends and share ideas and inspire new designs.

BIM: More than a Buzzword Presentation – Earn .1 CEU

ArchiCAD interior DesignGRAPHISOFT is sponsoring the CEU tradeday sessions during the IDS show as well as making a presentation entitled BIM: More than a Buzzword. Led by GRAPHISOFT North America Product Manager, Yanni Alexakis, the session will introduce Building Information Modeling or BIM and help attendees understand that it is more than a catch phrase, and more than a piece of code.  BIM goes beyond a new iteration of CAD. It’s a new way of working that makes it easier for interior designers to do their job and to coordinate with other professionals involved in a building project, too.

In this presentation, you’ll see BIM used in a real-world interior design application. You’ll understand the benefits of BIM first-hand—and learn how BIM is positioning today’s leading interior designers to be more competitive, productive and profitable. 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
  • Create photorealistic renderings directly from the model
  • Navigate with in the model in 3D view to quickly evaluate design decisions.

Dwell On Design Starts Friday!

Friday, June 20th, 2014

The unique three-day event that is Dwell on Design LA has become a must-see and must-do for interior design professionals and members of the AEC community. As it returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center June 20th through the 22nd, GRAPHISOFT will be exhibiting at booth #952.

ArchiCAD takes center stage on Friday, June 20th, as GRAPHISOFT sponsors two presentations highlighting how BIM can facilitate and streamline the workflow process for interior design.

BIM for High End Residential Design, presented by Mark Vacha is scheduled for 1:30 in meeting room 304C. Vacha’s presentation will discuss  his use of ArchiCAD on a beachfront home in Ocean Beach, CA, with a “tight window” lot. He’ll help attendees learn how to apply an efficient BIM-based workflow to master a typical SD, DD, CD. He’ll go over Permitting, Bidding architectural processes and successfully integrating various disciplines (e.g., structural engineering, etc.) into the BIM workflow.

Graphisoft BIMxSession participants will also see how GRAPHISOFT’s presentation tool, BIMx can improve communications and accurately set expectations between designer, contractor, and client. BIMx has helped Vacha’s clients fall in love with their home before it’s built.

Also on Friday, Dwell on Design attendees can attend a presentation entitled Competitive Advantage with BIM Technology, by Meghan Beckmann of KAA Design Group. Beckmann’s presentation will highlight two of the firm’s recent projects that exemplify the potential for using ArchiCAD to compete for and win projects, improve design process efficiency, and add value for clients.
