Assemble Systems, the company that helps construction management firms leverage Building Information Models to improve project results announces enhancements to its Revit publisher.
PCL Construction, a leading builder and a customer of both Autodesk and Assemble has created a powerful free plug-in called PCL PartsLab that will significantly improve construction companies ability to use Revit data for Takeoff, Estimating, Scheduling, and Project Management. PCL PartsLab drastically reduces the time required to create and use Revit Parts in construction models. Parts allow slabs, walls, columns and other BIM components to be broken down automatically into subcomponents with their geometric, property, and metadata available. This allows estimators and other project personnel to use more BIM in their daily workflow to increase accuracy and reduce risk.
The technical team at PCL Construction, led by Virtual Construction Manager Nick Kurth and Daron Denton, Manager of Virtual Construction R&D, worked closely with the leadership and development team at Assemble Systems to ensure a successful workflow between Assemble and Revit Parts. “We identified a gap within the industry where GC’s were re-creating structural and architectural models, and recognized that Revit Parts would allow us to eliminate that redundancy by leveraging models from our design teams and at the same time detail those models to reflect construction means and methods without impacting the integrity of the design model itself.”said Daron Denton.
“We are very excited to be working with PCL Construction to add this new capability to Assemble,” says Don Henrich, CEO at Assemble Systems. “The integration with Revit Parts and PCL PartsLab will give our customers more useful data to collaborate with using the Assemble platform.”
In addition to Revit Parts and PCL PartsLab, the latest release of Assemble Insight also includes support for Intergraph CADWorx Plant Professional to support the EPC industry. CADWorx Plant includes the most complete range of tools for efficient plant design within an accessible and intuitive interface. Assemble Systems core offering, Assemble Insight has been the solution of choice for leading firms in the general construction market. With Assemble for CADWorx release, the firm is bringing the award winning solution to the EPC market to improve capital projects.
“We have focused our product strategy to further penetrate the overall construction market through constant product innovations,” says Mark Klusza, Chief Innovation Officer at Assemble Systems. “2017 is a big year for us as we work to bring many new capabilities to the construction management marketplace. This release is the first of several we have planned for this year.”
Assemble Systems will be hosting a webinar on May 18th, to showcase the Revit Parts and PCL PartsLab support in action.
