To ensure project compatibility and integration, the team uses the latest in software tools during the specification process. These include Building Information Modelling (BIM) Solutions, Revit and ArchiCAD software. BIM is used to design and model every detail of a building, allowing design options to be explored as well as generating design documentation for construction.
Both ArchiCAD and Revit software suites are particularly useful for customising windows and doors to suit projects and ensure compatibility, with both supporting and integrating with BIM modelling. By utilising these systems, Alspec’s specification team can undertake a comprehensive overview of how their products can meet the project needs and identify optimum configurations. Using this software also assists with multi-discipline coordination, allowing Alspec’s framing systems to be smoothly integrated into the construction process. Alspec ArchiCAD are due for release in late 2019.
