Leading Design Firms Leverage the Latest BIM Advancement and Innovations to Deliver Higher-Performing Buildings(bentley)

While addressing some of the world’s most inspiring design challenges, leading design firms look to innovations and advancements in BIM software and methodology to deliver higher-performing buildings while at the same time staying on schedule and within budget.

As one example, Morphosis Architects turned to Bentley software on the Emerson College Los Angeles project to support its design of an innovative panelized façade system. The design was rapidly iterated, which reduced waste from 28 percent to 9 percent, and facilitated the use of the model for 3D coordination of shop drawings, CNC fabrication, and installation of complex building components. 

According to Cory Brugger, director of design, “Bentley’s modeling platforms have been central to our office’s development and delivery of highly innovative, award-winning architectural projects. The reliability of Bentley’s modeling environment and ease of interoperability with other platforms allowed the Emerson Los Angeles team to work collaboratively and collectively throughout the project’s lifecycle. The shared access to BIM data allowed all stakeholders to effectively and efficiently work in an open platform to deliver this innovative academic building on budget and on schedule.”

A further example of Bentley’s BIM products at work is the USD 40 million Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies project, where AECOsim Building Designer has helped John Wardle Architects significantly improve productivity. The team has leveraged 3D visualization to deliver greater understanding of designs, resulting in better anticipation and resolution of potential problems.

Grant Roberts, practice leader, said, “Bentley software offers John Wardle Architects production agility and efficiency with our workflows, particularly improving the free-form modeling of the complex geometries of our projects. Efficiencies resulting from the effective management of the design data allow us to manage the drawing production with a smaller team. This, we estimate, delivers productivity gains on the order of 15 percent.”
