Making the Switch to ARCHICAD
More than a year ago here on the blog, we profiled Cheikh Sylla of Tampa, FL-based Sylla International and his decision to adopt ARCHICAD over another BIM software he had been using for quite some time. Since then he has been busy, putting his skills and ARCHICAD to the test. At the start of 2015 Sylla evaluated his decision candidly, honestly sharing his experience for his readers and other architects considering a similar change.
Was it Worth it?
Rather than rehash his thorough overview of what the impact of the change has been, I thought it wise to discuss how he’s using the software on an actual project. Sylla is in the design phase of creating a nearly six thousand square foot home that features a pool in a flood zone of Miami, Florida. Sylla is using ARCHICAD 18 to create the design through to construction documents that and at press time was nearing the point of submitting the plans to the city for review.
